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.
