R | | Fantasy, Horror, Thriller
A single mother gives her son a much sought-after doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed by the soul of a serial killer.
Ed Gale was hired to play as Chucky for the fire scene as he was around 30% taller than the doll. This meant they created a living room stage that was 30% bigger and actually set him on fire.
I got the strangler! Wabash and Van Buren.
After Maggie crashes on top of a car there is no signs of blood.
At the end of the closing credits, the film's title logo is shown above the United Artists logo.
12 seconds were originally cut in the UK from the electrocution of the doctor to make the film suitable for a 15 certificate at the cinema and the video release featured the same print. These cuts were eventually waived for the 2005 DVD (rated 15).
