Halloween playlist #18 - Child's Play 2 (1990)

The Chucky movies are very hit and miss, but luckily the first sequel was pretty entertaining, otherwise the series probably would have died right here. And then we wouldn't have been able to witness the stupid glory of Bride of Chucky. And I wouldn't want to live in a world devoid of that.

If you've seen the first Child's Play, you can pretty much guess what this movie is all about. It's basically the plot of the second Elm Street movie, Freddy's Revenge, but with a killer doll trying to get inside a small boy. Standard stuff, but luckily this movie doesn't get too boring. In fact, very few movies in this series are boring at all. This one still played it kind of straight, but the inherent silliness of the plot makes it more funny and charming than it probably was ever meant to be. I prefer that over what they did with Seed Of Chucky...but we'll get to that later. Yay. I can't wait. This isn't the best in the series, but it's still entertaining enough for fans of the original.
