To be sure, Chucky is not your typical run-of-the mill doll. From its opening scenes, the film makes much use of foreshadowing. Then, upon arrival in his new home, Andy discovers a closet full of toys, including a Good Guy doll. Repeatedly, poor Andy encounters these dolls until the real Chucky turns up to haunt him. The real Chucky, whose full name is Charles LeRay, an infamous serial killer, follows Andy to his new school, and, while Andy is at recess, scrawls an obscenity addressed to the teacher on his paper. However, after the teacher leaves the room and locks the door, Andy escapes through a window, and Chucky hides in the closet.

But the premise remains the same: a toy doll transforms into a killer. This time around, however, the iconic Mark Hamill replaces Brad Dourif as the voice of the primary villain, Chucky. Aubrey Plaza stars as Karen Barclay, while Gabriel Bateman portrays her son, Andy, whose Buddi doll experiences a system failure and begins killing. But the reboot may try to make a statement and set a new bar.

Titles with surrendered ratings are usually released unrated to avoid the stigma of NC Changes in ratings are due to resubmission or appeal by a film's producers. Films receiving an NC are often cut and resubmitted in hopes of earning an R rating, which allows distribution to more outlets than an NC rating. NC films also tended to gross more on the home media market.
