Although made one year after Child’s Play 2, this movie takes place 8 years after.  Andy (now played by Whalin) is a teenager going to a military school, since they were never able to find him a permanent home.  There he meets a younger boy named Tyler (Sylvers) and a girl, Kristin (Reeves) that he develops a crush on.  But it’s Chucky that he has to worry about, as usual.

Chucky manages to mail himself to Andy.  He’s in a new body now though, so when Tyler is the first person to see him and learn of his identity, he decides that being a “brother” could be fun and turns his attention to taking Tyler instead of Andy.  So, most of the movie is spent with Andy trying to come to everyone else’s rescue.

As in the other Chucky movies, there is no Freddy Claws.  Innocent people always get killed.  Some bad people die too, though, and that’s good, but still.  It’s also a tad unrealistic if you can imagine that.  The kills were cool.  The acting was good, except for Sylvers, who really could have been better.  Altogether it was a mediocre film, but enjoyable in parts.  We recommend it if you’re a fan of Chucky or other killer doll type stuff.

My score: 50.  DJ’s score: 53.
