ComicBook - 04-19


Advances in technology make it easier than ever for films to pull off extraordinary effects, even allowing films with miniscule budgets to appear larger than life. Despite these advancements, some audiences feel as though CGI effects don't create the same level of authenticity as practical effects, especially in the horror genre. The Child's Play series has regularly had to go to great lengths to use practical effects to deliver a convincingly terrifying killer doll, with technological advances making this slightly easier over the years. Director of the upcoming Child's Play reboot, Lars Klevberg, promised that his film honors the spirit of the series and a majority of the sequences were shot practically.
