He’s back – The possessed and murderous doll who terrorized moviegoers in the 1988 hit ‘Child’s Play’ now roams the streets of an Alabama neighborhood as photos of a ‘real-life Chucky’ have emerged viral.
The human Chucky seen in photos standing on the side of the road in a residential area of Pinson, Alabama, waiting for cars to pass, was actually a 5-year-old boy named Jackson, who scared and laughed the people of his community. .
“Dear parents of the little boy in the Chucky Finch costume,” Kendra Walden, a resident who saw the boy, wrote on Facebook, “Grab your kid. I almost had a heart attack.”

“We took some pictures of him,” she added. “We thought it was so funny.”

And, she wasn’t the only one enjoying the fake horror as the photos she posted received over 15,000 comments and 103,000 shares.
“Can you imagine seeing this in person?” a user replied.
“It’s terrifying and awesome at the same time,” said another.
Jackson’s mother, Britnee Reed, told WDHN that Jackson is Chucky for Halloween and often wears his costume around the house and in the community.
“It’s kind of his personality,” Reed said. “He dresses in different costumes throughout the week. He loves to make people laugh.”

Reed said she first learned of the viral photos when she was at work and a colleague showed them to her, saying dressing up as Chucky around the neighborhood was something her son would have do.
Then she noticed it has been her son in the photos.
“I zoomed in and said, ‘Oh my God,’ that’s my kid,” she told the outlet. Reed then contacted his mother, who was monitoring Jackson. His mother admitted to helping him with the costume, so he could do his neighborhood watch.
The reaction has been overwhelming, Reed said, with mostly positive comments, negative reactions and a few invites to birthday parties and events.

Jackson, who the family says is “Facebook Famous,” politely declined the invitations but said he would continue to scare members of his community.
Chucky, the character, made his film debut in 1988 before appearing in several feature films. He has also made guest appearances and his TV show, from 2021, is set to have its second season this fall.
