CHILD'S PLAY & AENIGMA

child's play
This Friday, I'll be giving introductions to the horror movies Child's Play and Aenigma at the Cinematek in Brussels, Belgium. 

Child's Play is Tom Holland's follow-up to the horror-comedy Fright Night. Chucky, the killer doll possessed by a serial killer, became a popular horror icon who would pop back for countless sequels, just like legendary boogeymen Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees. This modern slasher classic adds a new twist to creepy puppet films such as Dead of Night

While American horror was thriving in the 1980s, its Italian equivalent was on its last legs. Aenigma, directed by horror maestro Lucio Fulci, is one of the last remnants of Italy’s B-movie heyday. After his 1960s and 1970s masterpieces, Fulci is trying here to adapt to the aesthetics of the 1980s, and jiffs up this story of telekinetic vindictiveness (think Carrie, Patrick, and Suspiria) with a snail attack and other bizarre sequences. The result is that Aenigma, his swan song, is more like a dark Z-movie than a regular B-movie.
