The Chucky films have always been accused of inspiring violence in children. One case linked to the series was a gang in Manchester kidnapping and murdering a 16-year-old girl. While they tortured her, they forced her to listen to recordings of the gang leader repeating the catchphrase “I’m Chucky, wanna play?” Director Tom Holland has always defended the first film from these accusations, stating that viewers of horror movies could only be influenced by their content if they were unbalanced to begin with.



  1. had a work mate who’s name was chucky ,he was gonna get married , lucky for me they released bride of chucky . well i clipped the ad out and pinned it on the notice board. got laughs ,then his bride to be did see it ,well thats where the horror story begins lol , really like your site and enjoy the trivia ,keep it up 😊

      • the fates were not that kind to make it that perfect ,and pissed ,well i didn’t go to the wedding lol.
        glad to hear it look forward to reading your blog some more😊

  2. I agree with the director. Thousands of people will have seen the films and don’t commit violent acts, I think it is the person’s mentality beforehand.

      • When I was in college a few years back, I had to look at certain media theories. One of them pertains to the idea that people are easily influenced by violence on screen. It was an interesting topic, but it is a flawed theory.

        • Before his execution Ted Bundy blamed pornography for turning out the way he did and I disagree with that. I look at pornography (I don’t like admitting that I do) and all it has ever made me do is jerk off (too much info?). Ted Bundy did what he did because he was an evil man in the first place.

          • I agree with you. You can’t go around simply blaming things in the media for people’s actions. When it comes to movies, the director and writer aren’t going out there to have a movie that promotes violence and murder. They are making a movie, which is entirely fictional.
