Child's Play 2 (1990)

Director: John Lafia

Starring: Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter, Gerrit Graham, Christine Elise, Brad Dourif, Grace Zabriskie, Peter Haskell

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Look out Jack! Chucky's back!

Plot: 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?

My rating? 6/10

Will I watch it again? That's a tough one.

I can't say I was disappointed as I didn't expect this sequel to be as good as the first; they rarely are in horror franchises. We get more attempts by Chucky to possess Andy. Unfortunately we don't get enough of what made the first one so good - Chucky time. He's the real draw. The kid who plays Andy does a pretty good job and you really feel for the guy with all he's gone through but when it comes down to brass tax, give me more killer doll action. Maybe that'll happen in the next sequel. At least this one only takes 80 minutes to get to the end credits.
