Childs-Play-2-1990

Andy’s (Vincent) mother has been in a mental hospital ever since she told the truth about Chucky.  No one believed her.  Real lack of Freddy Claws in these movies.  Anyway, Andy gets sent to live with foster parents Joanne (Agutter) and Phil (Graham).  He also has a foster sister, Kyle (Elise), who becomes his only ally later on.

We’ve never been afraid of dolls, so I’m not saying this movie scared me and DJ, but we did enjoy it.  I always liked Kyle’s character.  She doesn’t even know Andy very well, but she goes above and beyond for that kid and I loved that about her and about this sequel in particular.  Also, there’s some good kills in this one, a fabulous cast and a radical script.  It’s probably my favorite of the whole Child’s Play series.

My score: 71.  DJ’s score: 60.
