It's been eight years since the events in the second film, we now see that Andy is a teenager who has been enrolled in a military school. Play Pals Toy Company decides to re-release its Good Guys line, feeling that after all this time, the bad publicity has died down. As they re-used old materials, the spirit of Charles Lee Ray once again comes to life. In his search for Andy, Chucky falls into the hands of a younger boy, and he realizes that it may be easier to transfer his soul into this unsuspecting child. Andy is the only one who knows what Chucky is up to, and it's now up to him to put a stop to it. Written by Phil Fernando

Did You Know?


The movie was the center of a tabloid panic on its British release, with one newspaper - The Sun - even demanding copies be burned. Journalists claimed the film had influenced two young boys in their murder of a younger child, two-year-old James Bulger, although it was later determined that neither had actually seen this film.

Female cadets are required to tie their hair back while in uniform. Also, despite Botnik being so hard nosed about hair, even he allows male cadets to grow their hair longer than it should be, and doesn't cut Andy's hair short enough at beginning per military standards. See more »

Better than CP2, one of my favorite Chucky flicks.
12 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is sadly hated by many fans of the series, but I think it was much much better than two. I think the plot worked well, much better than CP2's, and actually carried the movie. I like CP3's mix of fun and suspense. It limits the viciousness enough to still have fun, and I think this works very well. The writing and set design work great together. The slightly quirky look and feel of the characters really makes them feel realistic, more so than in many horror flicks from the time. And the acting is decent too. The script is clever enough. It supplies some good one-liners, decent dialog, and scary, tense set pieces. The military setting is also very gritty and fun. The effects are decent too. Chucky still talks realistically, and moves his arms and legs well. There are drawbacks though, like the issue I've seen in many of these films, where Chucky is standing there without moving his legs at all and people are running from him, but he doesn't seem to be a threat at all. But this only happens once. Other than that, he still moves pretty well, and the gore FX are excellent. So I thought Child's Play 3 was a very good horror film, an improvement from the second installment.
