Storyline

Andy Barclay has been placed in a foster home after the tragic events of the first film, since his mother was committed. In an attempt to save their reputation, the manufacturers of Chucky reconstruct the killer doll, to prove to the public that nothing was wrong with it in the first place. In doing so, they also bring the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray back to life. As Chucky tries to locate Andy, the body count rises. Will Andy be able to escape, or will Chucky succeed in possessing his body? Written by Phil Fernando

Trivia

The original script had an opening scene of a court hearing dealing with the events of the previous film. Catherine Hicks was to reprise her role of Karen Barclay in this sequence but it was cut before filming began. Elements of this scene appeared in a similar courtroom scene in Curse of Chucky (2013).

Still a good slasher movie
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) is placed with foster parents Joanne (Jenny Agutter) and Phil Simpson (Gerrit Graham) and fellow foster kid Kyle (Christine Elise). His mother has been committed to psychiatric observation. The toy company reassembles the Good Guys doll Chucky to disprove the tabloid murdering doll story. As soon as the doll is finished, it electrocutes a worker. Mattson (Greg Germann) is told to get rid of the doll which still has the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Chucky kills Mattson and then tracks down Andy.

This movie doesn't have the surprise reveal of the original. Everybody knows who Chucky is except the characters in the movie. This is simply a slasher movie and it does a good job at that. There is good tension as Andy tries and fails to convince the adults. It's nice that Alex Vincent returns to reprise the role of Andy. The audience does want the mother to return but that's not to be. It would have been great to see her escape and come to the rescue like Sarah Connor.
