Beth Grant was hesitant to accept the role of Andy's strict, ill-fated teacher, Miss Kettlewell. Although Grant liked the script, she was intimidated about doing a horror film. She called her friend, actress Dinah Manoff (Maggie, in Child's Play (1988)), asking for advice. Manoff replied: "Well, if you see Child's Play, you'll find that *I'm* in it." Grant took her attitude as a good omen, and signed on. See more »

For crying out loud Joanne the child needs professional help!
Oh stop pretending like you're worried about Andy. You never wanted him in the first place.
That's not true!
So what are you suggesting we do? Send him back?
Well you don't have to make it sound so horrible!
Do you have any idea how traumatic this could be for him?
Traumatic. For whom Joanne? For him or for you? If that kid stays here he's gonna tear this family apart!

"Child's Play 2" is the first sequel to the popular 1988 original. The first film was a very entertaining horror film. The second movie in the series isn't as good, but it's not real bad either. However, the filmmakers took the gory route for this one. All the graphic violence makes it less effective. The first movie worked so well because it kept the violence down to a minimal. Oh the first film was violent, but not as violent as this one. But it's stylish look somehow makes it watchable. And, like the original, it's entertaining to watch. Young Alex Vincent reprises his role from the original as Andy Barclay, the boy who in this movie goes to live with foster parents while his mother seeks psychiatric help (from the events in "Child's Play"). Andy himself still isn't all together, and when Chucky the killer doll re-enters his life again, watch out! "Child's Play 2" may not be as good as "Child's Play", but it sure is better than the next movie in the series, "Child's Play 3" (which I thought was awful). I haven't seen the fourth movie yet ("Bride of Chucky"), so I can't voice my opinion on that one at the moment.
