From clowns to furry critters to dolls, 80s and 90s pop culture drew plenty of scares from childhood staples. Decades later, Hollywood is conjuring up plenty more by bringing it all back again. With the IT remake not only working a charm back in 2017, but releasing a star-studded sequel later this year, the folks behind it are reviving another old favourite: Child's Play.

While the horror franchise released its last instalment, Cult of Chucky, as recently as 2017, the new Child's Play is starting all over again. Remaking the original 1989 movie, it'll re-introduce the world to the psychopathic flame-haired plaything with a lust for murder. This time, the toy will terrorise Aubrey Plaza, who plays a young mother to a son who comes into possession of the knife-wielding doll. And Chucky will be voiced by none other than Mark Hamill, who's swapping lightsabers for killer dolls.

Whether you've seen any of the seven other Chucky flicks or are too creeped out by the idea to watch, you can probably guess where the story goes. This time, however, the murderous plastic moppet has been updated for today's surveillance- and technology-heavy times. Indeed, there are more than a few recognisable internet-enabled gadgets in the film's new trailer — the second sneak peek, after releasing a first glimpse earlier this year.

If you're particularly excited about the character's comeback, then you'll be just as excited to know that even more is in store, with a Child's Play TV series also in the works.

Check out the unsettling latest trailer for the new Child's Play movie below:
