Review

Our Score
Chucky, the living "Good Guy" doll, returns to continue stalking his former owner (Alex Vincent) and terrorise his new foster parents (Jenny Agutter and Gerrit Graham). Still nobody believes the kid's possessed Action Man story - until two seconds before they're brutally murdered, of course - resulting in a predictable, mean-spirited rehash of the original concept. A few neat touches lighten the load: Chucky burying his plush replacement in the garden with a seaside spade, for example, or a Shining-inspired climax set in an eerily designed toy factory. However, director John Lafia (who co-wrote the original) is never able to disguise the fact that his derivative valley of the dolls is beyond all hope.

Summary

Murderous doll Chucky is accidentally resurrected by an unwitting toy manufacturer, and seeks out his former owner to continue his efforts to regain a human body. Horror, starring Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter, Gerrit Graham, Christine Elise and Grace Zabriskie.
