The highly anticipated “Child’s Play” reboot will be hitting theaters on June 21st and will be directed by Lars Klevberg. The synopsis for the film is more or less the same as in the original movie: a company launches a high-tech doll, Buddi, which is snapped up by the public who think it’s the ideal child’s toy. Young Andy receives one of the dolls for his birthday – but it turns out to be much for sinister than expected.
We have wonder what the body count will add up to in this film?
