When it comes to survival in a horror film, some rules will help you stay alive: stay together, never say you’ll be right back, and don’t go into the dark basement are a few steps to follow to ensure your survival. However, there are ways to avoid these steps entirely. Never mess with artificial intelligence and if you decide to create a creepy robot that looks like a person, shut it down immediately. Unfortunately, the people in M3GAN did not follow these rules and will face off against a lifelike doll with an evil side.
Gemma (Allison Williams) unexpectedly gains custody of her niece, Cady (Violet McGraw), after the death of the young girl’s parents. Unsure how to handle this new responsibility, Gemma, a roboticist, enlists the help of her creation, Model 3 Generative Android, better known as M3GAN. The doll acts as a child’s best friend and companion. Gemma gives Cady a M3GAN prototype, and the initial results are positive. However, M3Gan soon becomes protective of Cady and Gemma, violently assaulting anyone that gets in the way of her job.
