Child's Play 3 (1991)

There isn't much fun to be had here. Chucky returns, this time being brought back to life when the plastic from his previous incarnation is melted into a new batch of Good Guy dolls. Reborn once more, he tracks Andy down to his new military academy, but finds that he can now pass his soul into the body of a new boy he befriends, as Andy attempts to rid the world of him forever! Kevin Yagher takes over the FX in this film, bringing some decent realism to the puppet, but also making Chucky look like a stunted pig. The deaths are tame and boring, and c'mon, of all the possibilities the series had open to it, the best option was to take it to military school? More one-liners, expected acting, and a retread on the same plot from the past two films. If I wasn't a completist, I would probably pass on this one each year.

Rating: 6/10.
Gore: 4/10.
Entertainment: 5/10.
Number of views: 7.

  1. Yeah, this one is always considered to be the worst of all of the Childs Play films, its just boring when compared to the previous two.

    Its probably why part four ended up being so kinetic and energized. I truly love Bride of Chucky, its one of the best in the series. It brought new life into the series and was extremely well directed and fun to watch.

  2. Yep - the worst of the series. Followed VERY closely by SEED OF CHUCKY, however.
