Trivia

Charles Lee Ray’s name in the movie Child’s Play was derived from three real life killers Charles Manson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray.

The voice of Brad Dourif, who played “Chucky” in the movie Child’s Play, was recorded in advance so that they could match the words with the motion of the doll’s mouth.
