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......
Where the first film was very dark and did give the odd scare, this film goes all out tongue in cheek, and Chucky becomes a sort of pastiche of himself (a la Freddy in Nightmare 4), and the film is all the better for it.
Granted, the film isn't scary, but it does deliver the odd thrill, and although Chucky is just a one-liner machine, he's still a vicious killer.
It's short and always fast paced, with the action never staying in one location for too long. Performances are okay, but this this is all about Chucky, and you get your fix in droves.
Probably the best in the series.
