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

Goofs

(at around 38 mins) Chucky cuts Andy's Achilles tendon from under his bed. Throughout the rest of the movie, Andy should have a limp from such a severe injury. However, he clearly has no trouble walking or running in subsequent scenes, nor does he show any signs of injury. See more »

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.

A word to all you haters of this movie
31 December 2016 | by kitfox30See all my reviews

Okay, so placing it eight years in the future and dumping Alex Vincent for attractive Justin Whalin may have turned people off. I kinda wondered how Chucky managed to wrap and address the package when he was in the box, but whatever. This is my favourite of the series and also the best comic moments until Bride of Chucky came along. I did hear that Alex had no desire to appear in this movie which is probably why it was set up the way it was. It is an interesting take on the series, but if anyone else noticed the blood dripping into a vat of boiling plastic, wouldn't there be more dolls affected?? My rating is 1) Child's Play 3 2) Bride of Chucky 3) Child's Play 4) Child's Play 2 5) Seed of Chucky. BTW Curse of Chucky is not worth watching.
