There’s an entire generation of adults who were traumatized by lived through the original Child’s Play movies, and now it’s this generation’s turn to experience the horror.

That’s right, Chucky the doll is back, with his chock of red hair and huge blue eyes — at least, we catch a glimpse of them in the reboot’s first teaser trailer.

As we saw in the 1988 original movie, young boy Andy (this time around played by Gabriel Bateman) is living with his single mother (Aubrey Plaza), and she decides to cheer him up with a new toy: the Buddy 2, a.k.a. Chucky.

Instead of being possessed by a serial killer’s soul — the plot of the original franchise — Chucky’s violent tendencies are caused by a defect in the toy’s programming code. It is 2019, after all, and the idea of a robot toy being evil based on a technological glitch is very contemporary.
