Sylvia and Jen Soska, known as The Soska Sisters, have made quite a name for themselves directing, writing and acting in some of most visceral, brutal horror films of the last ten years. Their breakout film, 2009’s Dead Hooker in a Trunk, attracted more attention for its controversial name than the movie itself. However, it established the style and mystique the Soska name would bring to independent film. I have to give Sylvia and Jen props for taking on the re-imagining of one of Canada’s greatest director’s best films.

“Prepare to meet your new best friend.”
It’s been thirty-one years since the release of Tom Holland and Don Mancini’s original Child’s Play, the notorious slasher-horror-comedy hybrid with an avid cult following. After six sequels under the Child’s Play and Chucky titles, director Lars Klevberg and screenwriter Tyler Burton-Smith have delivered a complete re-imagining of the original, set in the modern day. The question that comes up is “is this necessary?”, a fair inquiry, as some may consider the franchise to be over-saturated. However, it’s important to say that I’ve never seen any of the previous films, including the 1988 original…
“More than a toy… he’s your best friend.”
I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. However, I decided I’d take the opportunity to look back at some movies that didn’t particularly float my boat and see if I can find some good points in them.
