Child's Play 2 is a horror movie from 1990, directed by John Lafia and written by Don Mancini. It stars Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter, and Gerrit Graham, among others. The movie is a sequel to the 1988 film Child's Play and continues the story of the murderous doll Chucky. The movie starts with Andy Barclay, the protagonist from the first movie, being placed in foster care after his mother is committed to a psychiatric hospital. Meanwhile, the toy company that produced the Chucky doll, Play Pals, decides to rebuild the doll despite its murderous history, with the intention of proving that their manufacturing capabilities are still up to standard.
During the rebuilding process, Chucky's remains are melted down and mixed with plastic to create a new doll. However, due to the evil nature of Chucky's soul, the new doll is imbued with his spirit and becomes just as murderous as its predecessor. Chucky, now back in action, sets out to find Andy and continue his killing spree.
The movie is a classic slasher flick, with Chucky's murders being particularly gruesome and creative. The movie also touches on themes such as adoption, family, and the lengths people will go to protect their loved ones. The performances of the main cast, particularly that of Alex Vincent as Andy, are praised as the movie's strong points, with Vincent skillfully conveying the fear and trauma that his character is experiencing.
The movie is also notable for its use of practical effects, with the Chucky doll being brought to life through a combination of puppetry and animatronics. This decision to use practical effects instead of relying on CGI adds to the movie's realism and makes the scenes featuring Chucky all the more terrifying.
Overall, Child's Play 2 is a well-made horror movie that continues the story of Chucky in a satisfying and terrifying manner. It's a movie that is able to mix scares with humor and has become a classic of the genre.
