Andy wants a Good Guy doll and gets one for his birthday...only his has the soul of a serial killer and keeps attacking folks. That's why you should shop at Toys R Us instead of from creepy peddlers, but anyhow...Chucky begins his murderous reign here. He's terrorizing family members and well anybody that he can get his plasticised little fingers on. It's ridiculous, campy and fun, I wouldn't say it's scary but it may frighten some from the fact that it is a doll that has come to life. My favorite of the series, but it is worth watching most of them, I just wouldn't rush out and do so, as I actually think "Dolls" was a better film. Still this is pretty classic and memorable for a slasher flick!
