Childs Play 2 (1990)
Director: John Lafia
Main Stars: Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter, Gerrit Graham, Christine Elise
Storyline: Andy ends up in a foster home and Chucky comes back to transfer his soul into his body.
Review (Spoils): Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) has been placed in a foster home since the tragic attack of the haunting doll called Chucky. The company that created the dolls try to rebuild their reputation in this they resurrect the soul of Charles Lee Ray back into a doll. Chucky goes on a hunt again trying to track down Andy as he still wants to possess his body. With the help of Kyle (Christine Elise) a foster sister of Andy she rescues him and sees the truth of the killer doll. Through this all there are lots of chasing, meter stick beatings, stabbings, melting plastic and some air hose explosions.
Rating: The film falls under the same lines as the first one. We have more foul language and Chucky starts to shine his anger more in this one. Once again Andy annoys the hell out of me and still has not died! Chucky is a weak villain in my horror books but it was entertaining to watch.
Child’s Play (1988)
Director: Tom Holland
Main Stars: Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif
Storyline: A serial killer Charles Lee Ray transforms his soul into a doll before he is killed by police. The doll is later on bought from single mom Karen Barclay to give to her son Andy. What they did not know is the Eddie needs to put his own soul into the boys to become human again.
Review (Spoils): This movie can be sillybut really it is a serial killer trapped in a doll called Chucky (Brad Dourif ) who talks his new friend Andy into doing deeds for him, what’s not to love? We have the pretty and innocent mother Karen (Catherine Hicks) who wants anything more in the world is happiness for her son Andy (Alex Vincent)till he starts to lie and act strange out of character.Chucky has been building a false friendship with the child that he can gather trust so that he use a ritual to transfer his soul into Andy. We have lots of knife stabs and slashes but nothing for over the top gore. The film bases around the one liners and mouthiness of the walking serial toy boy. The movements and character build of Chucky himself is what makes the movie. Chucky through film becomes an icon of horror films when it comes to killer dolls. Hell if you can make a child believe “His real name is Charles Lee Ray and he’s been sent down from Heaven by daddy to play with me” you’re one evil bastard.
Rating: If you’re not offended by foul language give this doll a chance as he is one potty mouthed MF. If you can get past the annoying child this movie is worth a couple cold ones with some friends.
