𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒗𝒊𝒆 𝑻𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝑺𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒅 𝑴𝒚 𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒉𝒐𝒐𝒅 - Chucky!!!
Ever watched a movie that scared you so much that you couldn't move from where you saw it?
Or a movie that kept you glued to the end even though it's a series and super scary?
Then, what about seeing a movie years ago and you still can tell a lot of scenes and how you felt about the movie?
If you haven't, I have and that was me in the year 2013 - 2014 when I was living with Grandma and her grand kids including myself decided to see movie when she went to the market.
We saw the poster of the movie collection that it was going to be a horror, we were sure but we went ahead to see it since we had the five of us to hold on to should in case it got way to scarier for us to bear with.

See the little girl on my designed image? That was our position while we saw the movie, we couldn't have a relaxed mind seeing it but we kept watching like our lives depended on it. I remember the youngest of us burst into tears asking that grandma returns from the market soon since it was getting dark but we were adamant and wanted to see how it all ends in the movie.
What movie did we see? CHUCKY!!!
Chucky has a lot of it released in different years but the one I'm talking about was the collection released in the year 2013 I think. It had just came out when our aunt brought it home thinking it was just a doll cartoon 🥲 well, she was wrong but we never told her until she saw it herself.
Chucky is a movie about a doll that was possessed by an evil spirit of a serial killer, the doll is gifted to a five year old boy by his parents who knew nothing about the evil thing they got for their son... You can imagine the scenes that played out when the doll tries to possess the boy and killing people without hesitation. The collection had four parts in it that we made sure to see from start to finish.
- Curse of Chucky - When the doll (Chucky) got possessed and gifted to the boy.
- Cult of Chucky - When he came back for a revenge after being killed.
- Bride of Chucky - Chucky even got a partner to continue it's evil acts.
- Seed of Chucky - Of course, a child to show for it who carried on his evil acts.
Just look at how scary that face looks, imagine seeing it act it evil when you were much younger! 😂
This was even before he got tampered with by humans in attempt to kill it but he kept surviving all attempts turning him into a more hideous doll until he gave up for his child to continue. The movie is an old one but I could still remember a whole lot of scenes from it that still creeps in scares in my heart even at this age.
Shockingly, there were funny scenes in the movie that we laughed and forgot how scary it had been before that scene... What I'll call, "A horror masterpiece"
You get shocked while you were laughing, the scenes were all unexpected aside the fact that we were definitely expecting it to be scary and it always turn out that way. I remember a scene that got all five of us holding each others hand in fear but our eyes were still fixed on the TV.
It was the scene where Chucky killed the parents of the little boy so he could have more space to possess the boy
That doesn't seem scary when I just wrote it but the process Chucky used in killing them was the scary part and the fact that he laughs with pride after every kill got to our emotions deeply.
My final thoughts about the movie
It was a perfect horror movie and the very first that scared the hell out of me back then even though it would be like a poorly acted out movie now. I still remember not being in a dark place alone even years after but I've gone over it, don't know how though.
Would I see the movie again if I had the chance to? Definitely no! Don't ask me why because the reason is supposed to be obvious considering that it had an effect on my childhood and I'm a huge of fan of kdramas now lol.
