Description by Wikipedia

Child's Play is a 1988 American supernatural slasher film written by Tom Holland, Don Mancini, and John Lafia, and directed by Holland. It is the first film in the Child's Play franchise and the first installment to feature the character Chucky. It stars Catherine Hicks, Dinah Manoff, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, and Brad Dourif. Hicks plays a widowed mother who gives her son a doll for his birthday, unaware that the doll is possessed by a notorious killer's soul.

The film was released on November 9, 1988, and grossed more than $44 million against a production budget of $9 million. Along with the film gaining a cult following, the box office success spawned a franchise consisting of five sequels and comic books. Child's Play was the only film in the series released by MGM/UA, as the rights to the series were sold to Universal Studios in 1990, right before production on Child's Play 2 started.
