Happy New Year and welcome to January, a month known for being a dumping ground as studios release their worst movies of the year. In December, when critics put together lists of awful movies; you can bet that the films of January will be on that list. It is also likely that the very first release of the new year will be horror film. This year is no exception, as “M3GAN”, a “Child’s Play” meets “A.I” story, hits the theaters.
After a tragedy, little Cady (Violet McGraw) finds that she must now live with her Aunt Gemma (Allison Williams). Gemma is ill equipped to raise a child. She does not have any toys in her house. She has only “collectables”, which are meant to be looked at, not handled . However, realizing the need, Gemma creates a unique solution. She builds Cady a companion, M3GAN, a life-sized little girl who can be Cady’s playmate, best friend, and protector. It is not long before M3GAN takes protecting Cady to deadly consequences.
