Chucky and the Child’s Play series is synonymous with the horror movie lexicon, mostly because he’s the only killer doll of note that can stand next to Jason, Freddy Kruger, and Michael Myers. The diminutive dynamo has spanned over three decades, and though his total amount of movies is lower, I’d reckon that they are just as memorable without needing to be as plentiful as other horror movie staples.

These movies work because they have an established lore—Chucky needs a new body to inhabit to escape his doll form, so he looks for children to possess in order to reach the goal…and thus people must die—and it never truly strays away from it even when the movies took a comedic turn in the 2000s. But which Child’s Play is the best? We watched all seven of the original movies to find out.
