Storyline

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

Trivia

The box office disappointment of this movie (it made only $20.5 million on a $13 million budget) is the reason why there was not another Chucky movie for seven years, until Bride of Chucky (1998). See more »

Goofs

(at around 12 mins) Chucky activates several toys around the Play Pals CEO's apartment to distract him, including two other Good Guy dolls. Chucky is the first Good Guy to be made since the toy's discontinuation eight years earlier, so these other dolls should not exist unless, for some reason, they've just been sitting there for eight years.

Quotes

[first lines]
Sullivan: This is Andy Barclay. Eight years ago, he touched off the scandal that nearly crippled this company. Claiming his Good Guy doll, Chucky was possessed by... Charles Lee Ray, the notorious Lakeshore Strangler.

Child's Play 3
18 July 2013 | by ChrisOfficialSee all my reviews

Another hit classic thriller/horror film into The Child's Play Series. Child's Play 3 was a amazing comeback. The film is about Chucky who returns again as a doll after being possessed by a serial killer. He goes to search for Andy Barclay who has enrolled in a Military School, he is now a teenager. Chucky's plan changes when he meets a younger boy named Tyler he tried taking over his soul, but Andy will do whatever it takes to stop Chucky before he transfers his soul into the innocent Tyler.

After hearing about Child's Play 3 long time ago I thought that they were going to re-cast Alex Vincent in this one when he became a teenager because Alex Vincent always shined in the originals. We wanted to see the story continue with Alex Vincent, but after seeing Child's Play 3 it was too bad. The film had great performances by Justin Whalin who starred as Andy and Jeremy Sylvers was great starring as Tyler. The film was another Horror hit classic and Brad Dourif did great again playing the voice of Chucky.

The film had different plot points and all new cast. Child's Play 3 was good into The Child Play Series. I recommend this one to everyone as well. Child's Play and Child's Play 2 with Alex Vincent amazing horror classic. Child's Play 3 another great horror comeback.
