There are many things that people find scary, and other things that people may not. But one thing I think we can all agree on is that killer dolls are terrifying. It doesn't matter how cute or ugly the doll is, it's a non-human object with a weapon... not chill. If you really want to get freaked out, just try watching the Chucky movies in order and see if you can look at any doll the same.

Speaking of this sinister puppet, the news just broke that Chucky will be getting his own series "Chucky." This new show is set to premiere on SYFY and USA later this year (also, here are more '80s movies deserving a series). In the meantime, we've pulled together all of the trailers for all the Chucky movies in order of their release so that you can catch up.

Child's Play (1988)

This is where the nightmarish toy known as Chucky made his cinematic debut. For those of you wondering how this killer doll came to life, you'll find your answer here. But that's the only answer you'll find. Also, don't let the title of the film fool you, at no point are there children playing. The only thing being played with is the livelihood of an innocent child named Andy.

Child's Play 2 (1990)

Just when you thought this plaything from Hell was finally dead, the Play Pals Corporation decides to bring it back to life. Plus, because Andy's mom went to court and said that the doll committed the murders previously, she herself was taken in for psychiatric evaluation. So, Andy's all on his own. He does have some foster parents looking over him in his mom's absence. But he'll never be safe when Chucky's alive.

Child's Play 3 (1991)

Okay, you'd think once a doll is literally melted down nothing that this reign of torment would finally end, right? Guess again! This doll is not a typical one in that when it gets cut, it bleeds. So, when some Chucky's blood ends up in the vat of chemicals that they used to create the dolls, that's all he needs to be reborn. As if Andy Barclay hasn't been through enough already. Andy was even sent to military camp and guess what demented toy finds his way there as well....

Bride of Chucky (1998)

Man, this cursed puppet just won't die! The corpse of Chucky made it all the way to being in an enclosed bag as police evidence. Too bad Chucky's old fling Tiffany kills the officer who has it and takes it for herself. In an attempt to rekindle their love, Tiffany brings Chucky back to life. Once she begins to realize that he's still a jerk, she decides to torture him by locking him in a playpen. After he escapes, he gets his revenge by using his voodoo ritual to put her soul in another doll. So basically, now there are two killer dolls on the run. Yikes!

Seed of Chucky (2004)

At this point you shouldn't be surprised that Chucky's back... he always comes back. Just before Tiffany died, she gave birth to a son named Glen. Luckily for Chucky, Glen uses the voodoo amulet known as the Heart of Damballa to bring him and Tiffany back to life. Now these murderous toys can be one big terrible family.

Curse of Chucky (2013)

With a franchise like this, sometimes there's no specific reason why he shows up. But he always does. When a mysterious package shows up with no indication as to who it's from, a mother and her handicapped daughter open it up to find... Chucky. Soon after, the mother is found dead. Nobody knows how or why, but we sure do.

Cult of Chucky (2017)

This toy slasher flick is actually the highest rated one in the franchise. The reason being it's when Chucky's worlds collide. The original little boy whose life was ruined by Chucky is all grown up now, and now he's the one torturing what's left of Chucky. Additionally, the handicapped daughter from the previous film is in a mental institution because she was blamed for all of Chucky's murders. Now, we finally have two people who know Chucky is real that somehow managed to stay alive!

Child's Play (2019)

The final flick on our list brings Chucky into the 21st century. We've given you all the Chucky movies in order of release, but this one is actually a reboot of the original 1988 film "Child's Play." The scary thing about this remake is that Chucky is a high-tech murderer now. After one of the disgruntled manufacturers disables all of its safety protocols on one of the toys, it's open season for this new Chucky to come to life. This new plaything attaches himself to his owner, Andy Barclay, and then begins to mimic various behaviors, good and bad. Because this robot doll is constantly learning, it's probably best not to put on any violent movies when he's in the room.
