After what happened, Andy (Alex Vincent) is separated from his mother – who is put in psychiatric care – and now lives with a foster family mother Joanne (Jenny Agutter), father Phil (Gerrit Graham) and their teenage daughter Kyle (Christine Elise). Things should be settling down, but Chucky (Brad Dourif) doesn’t just give up, and after he finds himself reconstructed by the toy company, he’s dead-set on claiming Andy’s body for his own.
I didn’t love the first Child’s Play, but it worked. But Child’s Play 2 was a case of “less would have been more” and I thought it was a step down from the first one.
