Child's Play

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 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 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)

Plot hole: Andy is suspected of having killed Eddie Caputo, because he was at the scene when Eddie's house blew up and Eddie was killed. But there are glaring things that go unquestioned: None of the cops seem to think it's strange that a six-year-old kid would travel by himself so far to some random house in order to blow it up. The South Side neighborhood where Eddie lives is halfway across the city from Andy's apartment. How did Andy know where Eddie lived? How do the cops think he even knew Eddie at all? None of them address this most puzzling problem.

Suggested correction: The police believe Andy to be insane (hence why he is sent to a mental institution instead of juvenile hall), and thus do not believe his choice of victims to be in any way rational.

Also, as unlikely as it is that a six-year-old child could (or would) travel halfway across the city to murder a random person, the possibility that a child's doll came to life and carried out the act was considered far too outlandish at that point in the plot.

Question: Why was the film banned in Ireland?

Answer: Both "Child's Play" and its sequels were banned in several European countries after the murder of 2-year old James Bulger in Liverpool in 1993 by two ten-year olds. Some people felt that the killing was done in a way very similar to how Chucky is disposed of in "Child's Play 3", and blamed the whole thing on violent movies, causing bans from several governments. Interestingly enough, the UK never officially banned these movies, but most video rentals refused to carry it.
