"Hi, I'm Chucky ... wanna play?"
Those words, uttered by one creepy Good Guy Doll, scared a ton of people when the first "Child's Play" movie came out 25 years ago next month.
But there was one young kid who wasn't scared at all: The film's 6-year-old star Alex Vincent, who played Andy Barclay.
toofab's Brian Particelli talked to the actor, now 32, as part of our 13 Days of Horror -- where the former child star revealed some behind-the-scenes moments from the set and let us know what he's been up to lately!
See how more horror movie kids have aged in the gallery above -- and keep reading for the best of Alex's interview.
toofab: Was Chucky still creepy to you, even with all the puppeteers?
Alex: Chucky was the furthest thing from creepy. What 6-year-old boy wouldn't enjoy an electronic puppet to play with? It was a completely different perspective working with Chucky behind the scenes, never an opportunity to be creeped out, or scared.
toofab: Did your parents let you see the first movie right away? What was your reaction to it as a kid?
Alex: They did. I was a pretty bright kid, I had the entire script memorized, all of my lines, all of everyone else's. There were really no surprises for me to be frightened by. I can't remember much about how it felt to see the film at that age, but I'm sure it was a thrill for me!
toofab: Did people start recognizing you after? Have you had any bizarre fan requests?
Alex: Surprisingly, not that much. Although if they didn't recognize me, my father was sure to tell them who I was! He was very proud.
toofab: Did you see any of the sequels you weren't in? What do you think?
Alex: I did. I enjoyed them. I'm partial to the concept of Chucky being a horror film over the comedies [like "Bride of Chucky" and "Seed of Chucky"], but I believe there's something for everyone in those films.
toofab: Was it weird seeing another actor play Andy? [The role of Andy was aged in the 3rd movie and Justin Whalin (above) took over the part]
Alex: I was about 10 at the time, so it's hard to say how weird it may have felt. I remember thinking, "Is that how I'm going to look in 7 years?"
toofab: What have you been up to since making the "Child's Play" movies?
Alex: I've been making convention appearances for the past 10 years, working on some local projects, writing screenplays, and even some acting. My new film "House Guest" was just released, in which I play a lead role, as well as writing the screenplay, and mixing the audio, along with some original scoring.
toofab: What do you think about horror movies these days? Any you really like now?
Alex: I've actually never been a huge fan of horror, but I tend to prefer suspense over gore.
toofab: You make a brief cameo in the new "Curse of Chucky," we won't spoil it here -- but what was it like working with the doll again?
Alex: It's been very exciting being involved! I think it's a great addition to the series, and I'm really proud of my contribution!
