It’s official, M3GAN is the first hit movie of 2023. This means that we’ve got another iconic talking, murderous doll-like character on our hands. Of course, no killer doll can exist without being compared to the OG killer doll: Chucky. So who would win in a fight? Director Gerard Johnstone knows his pick.
There are some key differences, of course. Chucky is the soul of a serial killer inside a child’s toy. M3GAN is an artificially intelligent doll who becomes self-aware and will do anything (including murder) to protect her human. There’s actually some good intention in M3GAN, albeit a little misguided.
