Movie Info

A derivative rehashing of its predecessor (which itself owes a heavy debt to Trilogy of Terror), this sequel details the plight of young Andy (Alex Vincent), who in the previous film narrowly escaped losing his soul to make room for devil-doll Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif). Possessed by the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray, Chucky had coveted Andy's body as a replacement for his own plastic shell... which ended up beaten and burned beyond recognition. At this film's outset, Andy's mom has

Only in the highly orchestrated, surprisingly gory climax, wherein Chucky's plastic form takes on the sins of the flesh, is there a spark of originality.

An inevitable sequel that's not as good as its progenitor, but better than most movies with the numbers 2 through 8 in their titles.

In embracing its identity as a tacky horror movie, and totally scrapping the murder mystery angle that made the original so wobbly, it manages to be a darn sight more fun to watch.

Too much effort went towards giving Chucky life in this film, while other things like the writing, acting, and direction were left for dead.

The mystique might have faded, but the psychopathic Chucky is still an apt threat.

Entirely standard sequel fare. Fans of the first one will be entertained on an infrequent basis.

Audience Reviews for Child's Play 2

Going into "Child's Play 2," you definitely need to realize that these films are only going to get cheesier and you have to be in it for the entertainment value rather than a good story or reason for Chucky's return, because it really doesn't make sense if you think hard about it. This film follows Chucky as he is rebuilt by the company in order to study, but what they don't intend is to have the soul come back with him and go back to terrorizing Andy. It's a very schlocky film with laughable screenwriting and ham-handed actors, but it's fun when it needs to be. The last 30 minuets is extremely enjoyable and reminds you why you have been a fan of the series after the first film. it's nothing special, but it get's the job done.

I would have to say that Child's Play 2 was probably more entertaining than the first, not a great film, but watchable as part of the series.

Not as good as the first, but it's a good sequel as far as horror sequels go. It continues the story with the same two main characters, and in a realistic way too. It has a lot of good scares and a fantastic ending. I really like it.
