Childs play 3 is a 1991 horror film, it isthe 3rd part of child play series withBrad Dourif who returns a voice to thedoll Chucky. Many more people noticedthe film after the kids that were inspiredin the real life murder of James Bulger.
JAMES BULGER CASEJames Bulger was murdered on 12th February1993, when he was two years old. He wasabducted, tortured and also murdered by two 10year old boys. Bulger disappeared from the Newstrand shopping Centre in Bootle, near Liverpoolwhilst he was with his mother. His body wasfound on a railway line two and half miles awayin Walton, two days after his murder. The twoboys were found guilty on 24th November, whichmade them the youngest convicted murderers.
CHUCKY AND BULGER CASE It has been said that the two boys watched the series of child play and were inspired by the way Chucky is tied to a train track and so they decided to do the same to a child. They did not recognise the pain they have caused and instead thought to have been playing like Chucky.
AUDIENCE REACTION TO THE FILMThe audience reactions to the film is terrifyingand scared most of the audience this causedmoral panic within the audience. This film wasvery unusual and very unique as to other films,the pleasures audience received whilst watchingthis film is the thrill.
MY VIEWSI would give the film a rating of 18 as well due tothe case of Jamie Bulger, as children mentalitystill needs to improve so that they candistinguish the difference between a film andreality. The reason i believe it should remain afilm for adults is that they should be morementally able to watch such disturbing films andit is their choice to watch what they want towatch.
BBFC RATINGSome scenes of Child play 3 had a ratingof 15 however after the Jamie Bulger casethe age rating increase to 18 from 15.
