A child’s toy becomes a mother’s worst nightmare in the popular 1980s horror movie Child’s Play. Sadly, MGM has dropped the ball by producing a 1.33:1 full frame transfer of this film. Overall, the colors appear sharp and black levels dark and solid. However, this image sports a lot of grain, dirt, and some edge enhancement. The audio is presented in Dolby Stereo in French and English and sounds only passable. While the bulk of this track is free of any hiss or distortion, most of the soundtrack is only filtered through the center and front speakers. Also included on this disc are closed captions in English. The only extra features to be found on this disc include a theatrical trailer for the film and a collectable booklet. Maybe in the future MGM will produce a much better edition of this horror classic; until then, fans are stuck with this mediocre disc.
