Chucky Season 1 Spoiler Review: Dolls Well That Ends Well

For over 30 years, "Child's Play" creator Don Mancini has been the beating, bleeding heart behind horror's favorite possessed plastic pal, and the first season of the TV series named for the demented doll successfully takes Mancini's canon of seven films and blends them all together in a cacophony of all things "Chucky."

As a result, this adaptation automatically benefits from the feeling that it stays true to t...
