The murderous doll Chucky, seen in 2004's "Seed of Chucky,"… (Rolf Konow )
This year marks the 25th anniversary of such classics as the Oscar-winning best film, "Rain Man"; the first installment in the action-thriller "Die Hard" series with Bruce Willis; the innovative live-action/animated blockbuster "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," which spawned the modern golden age of animation; and the comedy "Big," starring Tom Hanks in his first Oscar-nominated performance.
It's also the silver anniversary of the chiller "Child's Play," which Roger Ebert described as "a cheerfully energetic horror film of the slam-bang school, but slicker and more clever than most."
Directed by Tom Holland and starring Catherine Hicks and Chris Sarandon, the horror flick revolves around a "Good Guy" doll that becomes possessed by the spirit of a serial killer, Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif in perfect malevolent voice), and transforms into a wise-cracking, murderous doll.

"Child's Play" was a surprise hit and spawned 1990's "Child's Play 2," 1991's "Child's Play 3," 1998's "Bride of Chucky" and 2004's "Seed of Chucky." The franchise has earned $126 million domestically.
You can't keep a demon doll down for long. After a nine-year absence, Chucky is alive — so to speak — and up to his murderous ways in the sixth thriller in the franchise, "Curse of Chucky."
Don't look for it at a theater near you, however. The film arrives on digital Sept. 24 and debuts on Blu-ray and DVD on Oct. 8, just in time for All Hallow's Eve.
Don Mancini, who has written all of the movies, also directed this installment, which finds a family being terrorized by Chucky. Dourif returns to his vocal duties, and the film also stars his daughter, Fiona Dourif, along with A Martinez.
