Movie goers have crowned a new ‘terror icon’ of the big screen while waxing lyrical about Hollywood’s latest horror release, M3GAN, a sinister and ‘sneering’ film about a terrifying robot doll who wreaks havoc on her family.  

The sci-fi horror movie – which was released on January 6 – caused a stir among fans who walked out of the theatre with goosebumps still running down their spine as they terrifyingly awaited the nightmares to come. 

The hit box office movie is centered around doll M3GAN – AI prototype ‘Model 3 Generative’ – who was created by robotics engineer Gemma, played by Allison Williams. 

Both movie critics and fans have already flooded social media with reviews of the sinister film – many calling for the scary dolls of the past like Chucky and Annabelle to ‘move out of the way’ as there is a new doll running the screens. 

After months of watching a four-foot-tall doe-eyed blonde doll dance her way across social media, fans are wincing in fear as movie M3GAN hit theaters this weekend

The horror film, which combines the outright terrifying with several silly moments, boasts a 93 per cent review on Rotten Tomatoes, 72 per cent on Metacritic and six out of ten stars on IMDB. 

The flick – which had a $12 million budget – beat office box predictions as it topped the charts, earning $30.2 million in ticket sales and $14.8 million internationally. 

Globally, the $45 million total marked for an impressive weekend for the talking doll.

Movie critics have called the film a ‘combination of Terminator and Chucky’ that is ‘produced by horror masters Jason Blum and James Wan’ that will leave you ‘never trusting your Alexa again.’ 

Others have coined the film a a wonderful balance of wit, horror and pop culture – with much praise being given to up-and-coming actress Amie Donald, 12, who portrayed the doll’s movements, while 18-year-old Jenna Davis provided her voice. 

‘Every moment of M3GAN is both endearingly silly and sneeringly mean, which is what gives it its power,’ said Austin Goslin of Polygan. 

Fans coined the film an ‘action thriller with light horror elements’ and a ‘really fun movie that is entertaining to watch.’ 

Other noted that although M3GAN is a villain, they can’t help but to ‘root for her.’ 

Another fan noted it even predicted a very plausible future.

‘[M3GAN] spells out a very plausible dystopian future in my opinion,’ wrote one fan. 

Many fans called the talking doll a ‘terror’ and ‘horror icon.’ 

Some scary movie enthusiasts said the film wasn’t too ‘scary’, but was ‘fun,’ ‘entertaining’ and ‘good.’ 

Other fans said ‘it kept them on their toes,’ before adding it was a ‘must see.’

One fan said: ‘This movie was so cool! I have been waiting forever to see it, and it was great. M3GAN was hilarious and scary at the same time. The doll was creepy but so sarcastic and had great graphics. I am so glad that I went to see it.’

Yet, others, noted that they wished the film was ‘rated R.’ 

Despite the horror, M3GAN producers recently said they think the film’s PG-13 rating is justified.

James Wan and Jason Blum defended the MPAA’s decision during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Some of the scariest movies of all time are PG-13, so I don’t put too much stock in the bellyaching,’ Jason said. ‘Go see the movie, and then tell me about it.’

The Grudge, The Ring, Insidious, Drag Me to Hell and a number of other terrifying films have been slapped with PG-13 ratings in recent years.

James Wan added, ‘Listen, I’ve done PG-13 films and I’ve done R-rated films. So I think it’s about whatever is most suitable for the film, and even though M3GAN is a scary movie, teenagers will really dig this. They’ll really like it, and I think it will speak to them in a big way.’

‘Yes, that’s right,’ Jason added. ‘We wanted teenagers to be able to see the movie, ultimately.’

And although the film just hit theaters this weekend, producers are already discussing a sequel and even teased there are ‘talks’ of a franchise in the future. 

Speaking about the film, director Gerard Johnstone and producer James Wan shared their desires to create a sequel, hinting that they ‘have an idea’ of where they want to go with one.

Gerard told Collider: ‘Oh, well, there’s talk of a sequel, but we’ll have to wait and see.’

Meanwhile, James added: ‘If we’re fortunate enough to have sequels, then we have an idea of where we want to go.’

The film even began the weekend by beating Avatar: The Way of Water off the charts on Friday – however the sequel bounced back – by bringing in $11.7 million, while Avatar brought in $11.4 million.
