The Child’s Play films have a murky past, particularly here in the UK,  but their continued hold on legions of horror fans speaks of a primal fear the film plays heavily on. Automatonphobia has produced some fine horror films over the years, one of the most recent being the cruelly underseen Dead Silence from director James Wan, but Chucky and his friends have come to represent this specific genre for many.

With a new film out in the coming weeks DaniElle DeLaite sat down at the film’s press conference in L. A. to hear all about what makes this film a new beginning.

Mark Hamill, Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, Gabriel Bateman and director Lars Klevberg attended the press conference of the retelling of the movie Child’s Play. The Star Wars actor voices the fiendish doll and the film also stars Tim Matheson, David Lewis, Beatrice Kitsos and Trent Redekop.
