Directed by Jack Bender
Starring Justin Whalin, Perrey Reeves and Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky
The 80’s created iconic horror characters like Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers (he first appeared in film in 1978). I still find Myers as the scariest because the character remain haunting and the same, never adding humor to his films. Child’s play is the story of a serial killer than in order to survive transfers his soul to a doll and then tries to transfer his soul in the body of a young boy named Andy.
This time around Andy is older and sent to military school. Chucky once again awakes and sets to find Andy. When he finds where he is he meets Tyler and decides to use him instead of Andy.
I don’t know why but this is my favorite of the main three films and of all the films. I liked the setting of the school and the fact that Andy is bigger and Tyler is clueless as to the danger and does not act scared for most of the film. The characters and story are filled with cliches but it works as an entertaining movie. I saw the movie again and enjoyed it still, I can’t say it is still scary, but it is fun and this is in large part because of how Chucky is written and Brad’s vocal performance.
