Horrorfest 2021 Presents: Child’s Play 2 (1990, John Lafia)

Child’s Play 2 is one of those sequels that even though it doesn’t surpass the original it still manages to be a good follow up. The first flick is a classic, yet the sequel works in it’s own right, with the evil Chucky being revived, of course. Poor Andy gets transferred to a foster family while still knowing that Chucky will come for him. Horror movies are really good at making normal items such as dolls be really creepy, although I don’t find either flick to be that scary.

However the factory part of the movie is pure nightmare fuel, and the movie has some good kills. Even though Child’s Play 2 isn’t very remarkable, I enjoyed the movie anyways. Alex Vincent is excellent as Andy and Christine Elise is very likable as his foster sister. Also hey any movie with Gerrit Graham and Jenny Agutter as foster parents can’t be all bad. I’ll continue with the rest of the series although I’ve seen most of the third one, Curse of Chucky and the 2019 film that is largely a stand alone flick.
