BGH Thirsty Thursdays - Child's Play (1988)

Here at Bloody Good Horror we spend much of our time talking about good movies and bad movies alike, and picking apart the things that place titles in either category. In horror specifically, there is a beautiful gradient, comprised of everything from "so bad it's good" to "just plain bad." For many movies in this grey area, the viewing experience itself - who you watch it with and how - can be as important as the movie itself. In that tradition, monthly on a Thursday we'll fondly recall one of those sort of movies that seem made for the loud and alcohol-fueled viewing party, and give you the framework to host a screening of your very own, complete with imbibing instructions!

Note: BGH reminds you to respect the minimum age requirement for drinking in whatever god forsaken hellhole you live in.

What's the old saying? You can't keep a Good Guy down? Well that may not be how the saying goes, but it certainly seems to be true of at least one, very special Good Guy doll. This summer sees the release of a new Child's Play movie and just like that Charles Lee Ray, better known as Chucky, is back. In light of this new release, we thought we would bring you back to the film that spawned many a sequel and brought us a killer doll way before the Waniverse gave us Annabelle.


1. Drink for voodoo magic.

2. Swill each time you see or hear that Good Guy branding.

2. Sip every time that adults don't believe Andy.

3. Gulp whenever those adults are paid for their skepticism.

4. Drink for every POV shot.

5. Cheers to that Chicago skyline.



Sophie's introduction into the magic that is the horror genre was watching Halloween at a party in high school, and since then she's never looked back. She may be the wimpiest horror fan you have ever met, but she won't ever let that stop her!
