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?


Not counting the garbage man this film until Curse of Chucky had the most deaths at a single organization. Sergeant Cochrane, the military barber sergeant, Coronal Shelton and Whitehurst who were all based at Andy's military school were all killed off in this film. See more »


(at around 20 mins) When Andy removes the white rag used to gag Whitehurst, it is still wrapped around his neck, but in the next shot, it is lying on the floor. When Whitehurst stands up, it is back around his neck. See more »


Shelton: [laughs] What's the matter, Barclay? Huh? You homesick? You miss your mommy?
[picks up his shoe to find that it is scratched]
Shelton: What the fuck is this?
Andy Barclay: Don't worry about your shoe all right? I'll polish it, just give me back the doll.
Shelton: No, You listen to me. Tell Whitehurst he's off the hook, huh? I got myself another slave and clean up this mess.
[gives him back the shoe]
Shelton: You've got 5 demerits.
Andy Barclay: What about the doll?
Shelton: My kid sister's birthday is coming up. I think she's gunna love it, don't you?

A great addition to the series

I never watched the Chucky series in sequence. I never used to like them. I saw Seed of Chucky, Child's Play, Bride of Chucky, child's Play 2 and then Child's Play 3. Seeing as though this was the last that I watched. I really was into Chucky and I thought it was a great addition to the series, yes it's a bit "out there" but that's what's good about Chucky. I'm not particularly into the military thing but this movie made me appreciate it that bit more. I think it is good how it shows Andy still hasn't gotten over his phsycological problems and that he is still terrified of his old best friend. I liked this one better than the original and I love the lines that Chucky says. For those who don't think it's a good movie, I understand because I didn't enjoy it the first time I watched it but now that I have seen it more I love it!!
