The movie has a nice blend of horror and humor, it delivered the needed thrill for the day – a nice surprise pack of fun, entertainment and worthy of its box-office hit status, as I believe all those people needed to see it. The movie is Chucky (Child’s Play) but instead of the doll being possessed by the spirit of a serial killer, our doll is a possessive A.I.

I am not surprised that a part 2 is already in the works, I just hope they will not ruin it by making multiple versions of it, because the movie has a scene where someone is stealing files to the production of M3GAN. I just hope anything they had planned does not include such.

I liked the way the movie did not try to skip pass the B-movie flex that it is, and the suspense was well crafted that we did not need a spiritual possession of the doll to know that this thing had evil intentions. The doll in question is an A.I. gone rogue which imprinted on a little girl and was ready to make sure she never had a reason to shed a tear again. It starts with the idea of making something so different and above the level of the toy competitors so that they can blow their competitors out of the water. It was this need to make the next best thing that birthed the creation of M3GAN.

Our little girl in this movie is Cady who lost her parents in a car accident and custody was give of her to her aunt, Gemma. Gemma was too busy trying to live her life as a programmer who works in a company that makes toys. Her latest project is M3GAN an A.I. doll which can help a child in growing and learning. Gemma wanted to test M3GAN and made Cady imprint on the A.I. making the A.I. see Cady as her primary operator. Gemma’s laziness made her add some extra codes to M3GAN making her more motherly and more independent as M3GAN became very possessive of Cady and Cady who just lost her family also became possessive of M3GAN.

Well you can fill in the dots from here, possessiveness became an obsession which led to some unplanned deaths.

The movie is from Blumhouse the company who always make low-budget horror movies, many of whom are a copy of the mainstream movies which we know. Fun movie to see any time.
