Child's Play

Visible crew/equipment: When Karen Barclay has Chucky trapped in the fireplace, and she is sitting on the floor holding the door/cage thing, you can see the puppeteer's hand controlling the Chucky puppet. (01:14:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Andy upwraps his Good Guy doll, he says "A Good Guy! I knew it!", after he says this, you can see the shadow of a crewmember cast on Karens bare legs, moving around. (00:13:50)


Visible crew/equipment: When Chucky has the voodoo doll of John, he walks along, then says "And you have a date with death!" After saying that, he turns, prior to stabbing the voodoo doll. After he says it, and turns, you can see the large, bald, shiny head of a puppeteer, crouched behind him!! (01:01:55)


Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film, the burnt head and body of Chucky are thrown across Karens bedroom, below the window. The body twitches, then suddenly jumps up. The body's (one) leg actually doesn't touch the ground! The body rises with no real support, so if you look under the body, you can see a black rod/sheet (coming from through the carpet), pushing the burnt body up. (01:21:50)


Child's Play mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Andy pours the cereal, and then the milk, there is cereal on the counter, to the left of the bowl. There is loads of cereal on the counter, then when Andy puts the burnt toast onto a plate, there is much less cereal. Then when he takes the tray from the counter, there's now loads of cereal on it. (00:07:25 - 00:08:15)

Trivia: When Chucky is running behind Maggie, many children and child relatives of cast and crew were filmed doing the run while dressed up as Chucky, including Alex Vincent's younger sister, since it would have been impossible for the animatronic Chucky to run across screen like that. However, it is unknown which child ultimately was used in the final cut.

More trivia for Child's Play

Question: When Chucky confronts John, he say he "prepared" for it, meaning he made the voodoo doll himself, but then he says John shouldn't tell people where he hides them. Was this a mistake during production?


Chosen answer: This isn't a mistake. John made the voodoo doll himself. When Chucky said he was "prepared" for it, he meant that he was prepared to do whatever it takes to get information from John about his being wounded. Even killing him as we see.
