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.
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

(at around 4 mins) During the Play Pals meeting, slideshow photos of Andy and Charles Lee Ray are shown. All of these photos are publicity stills (or perhaps still frames) from the first Child's Play film, and not actual photos that should exist in the 'Child's Play' universe. See more »
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.

But, really, this movie did not deserve to be slammed into the 3s. The movie had everything a mediocre early 90s horror movie should have - a plot you can follow without going cross-eyed, a few really gory death scenes and a pinch of humor. This movie won't make you roll on the ground laughing, but it will get your a chuckle here and there at Chucky's antics.
The young actors also pull performances that's beyond tolerable - it's flat out acceptable.
Absolutely great movie? No.
Absolutely horrible movie? No.
I was entertained and got exactly what I was looking for... thus it earns a 7 from me. You want a horrible horror movie that deserves its three - check out Leprachaun 4.
