The magical VHS trailer for CHILD'S PLAY!


Well, they don't make 'em like this anymore!  Actually, to be honest, I don't think I've ever seen a trailer quite like this before -- and you know how zany some of those old home video trailers could get.  They'd do almost anything to get entice you to get off your butt and get to a store to buy their movie.

And CHILD'S PLAY was no different.  Now if you remember, the initial theatrical trailer was straight-forward, horror-oriented.  But post-release, when it came time to actually sell the film for home viewing, the studio took a different approach.  A much, much different approach.

Now many of you will remember this VHS trailer, but perhaps some of you might be seeing this for the first time.  It's starts off innocent enough with a little voice over introduction by Chucky himself.  And then...well...


...magic.  Just magic.  I wasn't kidding when I said they don't make them like this anymore.  I don't know about you, but it's 2015 and I want to run out and grab a copy RIGHT NOW!  A rap!  A motherfucking rap song!  And it's great!  Well, great in a this-is-so-bad-I-love-it sort of way.  What are your thoughts on the CHILD'S PLAY VHS trailer?
