Charles Lee Ray is back and who says Damballah's Lighting doesn't strike twice?
on 11 May 2017
In this second installment of the Child's play franchise.
The outline of the movie takes place two years after the fateful date of November 9th 1988 which the Death of Charles Lee Ray the Lakeshore Strangler and Andy Barclay's sixth Birthday. Karen Barclay from the first movie was taken to a psychiatric hospital as described by one executive who is later killed by Chucky and led to track down eight year old Andy settled with foster parents (Garrett Graham, and Jenny Agutter from American werewolf in London) in the middle class west side of Chicago and his nightmare is relived, it is up to adopted teenage older sister Kyle (Elise from Beverly Hills 90210) to come to the rescue like a Karen Barclay surrogate mother to protect him.
This is more of a fun house ride and more comedic lines and scenes than the original, some of the scenes is funny (watch out for the wonderful Beth Grant from Donnie Darko as another witchey poo Teacher role and Grace Zabriskie from Servants of Twilight, the photocopy death scene was being ripped off by many action movies in its day) the special effects on Chucky are at best here, I liked the way he moves in this movie and really seemed demonically possessed for real, and his catchphrases are superb. The legendary Brad Dourif reprise the flair role of Chucky's vocals and does it with style and different moods from savagely intense rages of a serial killer to goosebump gentle whispers, and he is born to do this. The voodoo incantation scene is so absorbing and so well done - Chucky can be ruthlessly evil and selfishly wants to get to his goals of wanting to experience flesh again, and one minute he is cute and adorable looking as a munchkin.
The murder scenes are more creative than the original.
You don't want the dazzling movie to end, so abuse the repeat button if you must.
That movie is timeless and never ages.
