Arriving in Romania, American Katherine Thatcher, (Mia Sara) determined to find herself a new life. While searching through the city with Max, (Dezso Garas) keeps seeing a strange dragon symbol that resembles a design on her medallion she wears which helps her along with the search for her missing father. Meeting with local Grigore Protoescu, (Robert Reynolds) who helps her along, and she manages to do a little more digging into the past, eventually coming across Anton, (Anthony Perkins) who has a terrible secret for her. Eventually cornered with the realization that her father is a member of a secret society of vampires that needs their blood to stay alive, and that everyone else she trusts is either a member or are a willful helper, she tries to escape from their clutches before she becomes one of them.

There’s some good stuff to this one. One of the best is that there’s a habit of including really neat scenes in random order throughout the film. Some of them are pretty creepy, including a rather intense chase of a black-robed figure through the streets at night, which leads into the incredibly explosive finale that really ends it the right way. The foot chase to the taxi later on is also pretty good, and it even manages to get in some pretty good stuff later on. There’s the whole finale to this, which is where most of the fun in the film comes from. From the creepy torture dungeon to the stable hideout, there’s some good locations for the all-out action assaults. Those are great, as there’s the torture segment in the dungeon which is actually really cool, as the sight of the vampire being strapped to a machine that lets in daylight to scar and torch the hands, arms and face, and the impressive visual of that happening, is a great site and manages to make them feel a lot more threatening when it occurs. Then there’s the confrontation in the stable, which is just great. From the introduction of the fire to set everything ablaze to the brawling with the vampires and the destruction of the location and the thrilling escape, it’s really fun and enjoyable. It’s also got the fact that the vampires are all knocked off by being set on-fire is really great, as there’s plenty of great scenes that show them running around on fire. It’s a great site, and mixed in with the really great setting and fun action make the ending fun. What makes these work is the really entertaining storyline for this one. There’s a really great mystery angle at work, with the reason for the journey to Romania a logical one that allows for some creepy goings-on that it manages to incorporate because of what’s going on, and they’re all done really nicely in here because the story allows them to.

With some very good points to this and only a few really noticeable flaws that hold it down, this one ends up as being one of the better entries available. Give this one a chance if it sounds interesting or find these kinds of films themselves quite fun, otherwise the flaws here will be quite worthwhile.

Serial killer Charles Lee Ray, also nicknamed the “Lakeshore Strangler”, is a wanted fugitive on the run from the police in the streets of Chicago on the night of November 8, 1988. After being fatally shot by Detective Mike Norris, Charles transfers his soul into a “Good-Guy” doll via a voodoo ritual which destroys the store in an attempt to cheat death. Mike, who survives the explosion, finds Charles’s body, thinking he killed him.
The next morning, widow Karen Barclay buys the same Good Guy doll at work from a peddler as a birthday gift for Andy, her 6-year-old son. That night, Karen’s friend Maggie Peterson comes to babysit Andy. The doll, now named “Chucky”, kills Maggie by striking her in the back of the head with a hammer, sending her falling to her death out an open window after she stopped him from getting live updates on TV of his former accomplice, Eddie Caputo, who abandoned Chucky the night he got shot. The police soon arrive and Mike thinks Andy had something to do with Maggie’s death, much to the fury of Karen, who orders the police to leave.
The next morning, Andy, on Chucky’s apparent orders, ditches school and takes Chucky to a rough part of Chicago where Eddie lives. Chucky sneaks into Eddie’s home while Andy is urinating and turns off the pilot light and turns up the gas which explodes after Eddie shoots at it destroying the building and killing him. When Andy is again questioned by the police, Andy blames it on Chucky. Andy is then sent to a mental hospital, much to Karen’s dismay.
That night, Karen discovers Andy was telling the truth when she realizes Chucky’s batteries were never placed inside, meaning Chucky has been functioning without batteries. When inspecting Chucky, Chucky comes alive, curses at her in Charles Lee Ray’s voice, bites her and escapes; Detective Norris finally agrees to help after Chucky almost kills him in his car. Chucky goes to John, Charles Lee Ray’s former voodoo teacher. When asked why he bled after being injured, John reveals to Chucky that the longer his soul remains trapped within the doll, the more human he becomes. In order to escape the doll’s body, Chucky must possess the first person to whom he told about his possession, which is Andy. When Dr. John rejects Chucky’s plea for help, Chucky fatally wounds John using his own voodoo doll and stabs him. Chucky escapes just before Karen and Detective Norris arrive on the scene. Before dying, John tells them that although Chucky is a doll, his heart is fully human and vulnerable to fatal injury.
At the mental hospital, Chucky steals the key to Andy’s cell, but discovers Andy has escaped. Dr. Ardmore finds Andy and unsuccessfully tries to sedate him. Chucky violently electrocutes Dr. Ardmore, then follows Andy home and knocks him unconscious with a wooden baseball bat. As Chucky begins possessing Andy, Karen and Detective Norris arrive and stop him. Chucky slashes Mike, then goes after Karen and Andy. The pair trap Chucky in the fireplace and burn him. Thinking Chucky is dead, Karen and Andy leave the room to help Mike, but Chucky follows them and attempts to kill them. Chucky is again thought to be killed when Karen shoots Chucky, severing an arm, a leg, and his head. Jack Santos, Mike’s partner, arrives at the apartment, and disbelieves the trio’s story. Chucky’s body then bursts through a ventilation duct and tries to strangle Jack. Karen tells Mike to aim and shoot for Chucky’s heart. After Mike kills Chucky, they go to the hospital. Karen turns off the bedroom’s lights and Andy looks back at Chucky before closing the door as the screen fades out.

One of the men working on Chucky is killed via electrocution, resulting the CEO of the company Mr. Sullivan (Peter Haskell) orders his assistant Mattson (Greg Germann) to cover the accident and get rid of Chucky.

Andy is adopted by Phil (Gerrit Graham) and Joanne Simpson (Jenny Agutter). In his new home, Andy meets his new foster sister Kyle (Christine Elise).
After work Mattson stops at a corner store and while he is out of his car, Chucky phones Grace Poole (Grace Zabriskie), the manager of Andy’s foster center. He claims to be a relative of Andy’s in order to get his new address. He then carjacks the car and orders Mattson to drive outside the Simpson household at gun point. Chucky then kills him by suffocating him with a plastic bag. In the house, Chucky accidentally activates “Tommy”, another “Good-Guy” doll (who Andy mistook for Chucky), and destroys him with Joanne’s ornament. Chucky then buries the toy in the garden and takes his place as “Tommy”. Phil punishes the children thinking one of them broke the ornament. After Andy spends the rest of the day with Kyle, Chucky waits for nightfall and ties up Andy and almost possesses him. However, Kyle, who snuck out, arrives. After Andy claimed Chucky tied him up, Phil throws Chucky in the basement.
The next day, Chucky hitches a ride on the bus to Andy’s new school. Andy’s teacher Miss Kettlewell (Beth Grant) discovers obscenity written on his worksheet, forces Andy to stay in the classroom as punishment, and locks Chucky in the closet. Andy escapes, and the doll beats Miss Kettlewell to death with a yard stick. After Andy insisted Chucky got him in trouble, Phil considers taking him back to the foster center.
That night, Andy tries to kill Chucky with an electric knife in the basement, but Chucky attacks him. Phil is killed by Chucky by being tripped and thrown to the floor, snapping his neck. Joanne, convinced that Andy killed him, sends him back to the foster center. Later, Kyle discovers “Tommy” in the garden and realizes Andy was telling the truth, and begins to search for Chucky inside the house. After finding Joanne’s body, Chucky attacks her and orders her to take him to the center. There, during a false fire alarm, he kills Grace by stabbing her in the heart, and orders Andy, who is being held at knifepoint by the doll, to take him to the PlayPals “Good-Guy” factory for the transfer.
Kyle follows the duo to the factory. After knocking Andy unconscious once again, Chucky fails to possess the boy, since he spent too much time within the doll’s body. Enraged, Chucky decides to kill Andy and Kyle instead. Chucky murders a security guard. He then loses one of his hands, which he replaces with his knife, and his legs, but still goes after the two. Kyle and Andy then pour molten wax over him before putting an air hose in his mouth, which causes his head to explode and finally defeating him. The pair leaves the factory for “home”, with Andy asking where “home” is and Kyle responding that, in truth, she doesn’t know.
Child’s Play 2 has never looked this good. Plus the film is Uncut. Still a classic to this day.

This 3rd Child’s Play film was taken off the shelves and banned after the awful James Bulger murder case back in 1993. Claiming that certain scenes made the little boys killers do the awful crime after watching it a few days before. What were two 10 year olds doing watching an 18 rated film anyway? The film isn’t to bad to be honest. Yes slightly more graphic than the first 2 films but didn’t warrant it being an 18.  Not as good as the first 2, but ok.
