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.
