006: Child's Play (1988)
This week we break down our impressions of the 1988 film Child's Play. We discuss the creepiness of dolls (specifically those of the porcelain variety and a particular doll named Robert), viewer tolerance levels for vulgarity in horror, and the importance of not purchasing goods from peddlers in back alleys. This episode contains spoilers.

Last week we asked if Jigsaw is considered a murderer. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of yes, despite a few outliers who feel he's just being really helpful. The verdict: Hell yes he's a murderer, how is this even a question?
This week "How do you pronounce the word aunt - awent, or ant?"
