Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
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
[Andy unknowingly walks into Kyle's bedroom]
Jesus! You ever hear of knocking?
Andy, did you find your - what? Are you crazy? Give that to me.
[confiscates Kyle's cigarette]
Come on, Joanne.
Phil will shoot you if he catches you again. Andy, this is Kyle. She's staying with us too.
Kyle, what is this? You've been here three weeks. Why haven't you unpacked?
What for? I've never spent more than a month in any home.
Well, with that attitude I can see why. Now, would you do me a favor and ...

Numerous scenes cut from the original version appear on the USA network's version:
Two different scenes with Joanne and Phil discussing Andy and the adoption agency letting them keep the children they adopt.
An argument between two men in the dark after the worker is electrocuted and the sound of Chucky running. The man lands differently after smashing through the glass window after being electrocuted.
Before the assistant calls his girlfriend, he calls his wife and tells her he has to work late.
A different ending shows Chucky's face being created through the machines, then Chucky gives an evil smile, much like the beginning of Child's Play 3.
A scene where Kyle stops in an alleyway to search for the newspaper delivery truck with Andy and Chucky in it.
Kyle tells Chucky "playtime's over" just before he gets disfigured.
Kyle assures Andy that he can make his way past the eyeball machine while trying to escape the factory.
A scene right after Phil nearly runs into a Play Pal's truck, Joanne asks Andy if he's alright.
A different ending is shown than the one in the theatrical release. It shows Kyle and Andy coming out of the factory, after Andy asks where home is, Kyle responds by saying she has no idea then says it looked like she was stuck with Andy, which is followed by a scene in the factory where Chucky's face is made with an evil grin on it.
Child's Play 2 picks up not long after where its infamous predecessor left off, and straight into the film, the original Good Guy doll housing the spirit of the Lakeshore Strangler is being fixed up and Good Guys are back in action. While unfortunately, Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks do not return, they are at least mentioned, and given plausible reasons as to why they could not be in the movie. Innocent Andt Barclay (Alex Vincent) however returns, and is once again at the mercy of Chucky (voiced by the classic Brad Douriff) when Chucky traces Andy down to where he is living in foster care. From there, the typical mayhem follows, with plenty of doll-style murders, witty lines from Chucky and a great finale at the Good Guy doll factory.
While the original Child's Play is a terrifying classic, part 2 is somewhat of a step down, only because one knows what to expect, for the most part. However, the cast are a great asset to the film. Alex Vincent is right on the mark in his role as Andy, Christine Elise is terrific as his foster sister Kyle, and Jenny Agutter adds a touch of class as their foster mother Joanne Simpson. Gerrit Graham plays her strict husband, and Grace Zabriskie is good in her role as the career at the orphanage. Beth Grant steals the moment in her small role as Mrs Kettlewell however. Overall, a fun sequel to the original, with a well rounded cast and plenty of thrills to keep one entertained.
