Child's Play 2 woof! 1990 (R)

Chucky lives. Basic doll-on-a-rampage story, a metaphor for the Reagan years, lives on in the sequel (you remember: somehow guy-doll Chucky made it past the quality control people with a highly inflammable temper). A little dotty from playing with dolls, young Vincent finds himself fostered by two new parents, and plagued by an obnoxious and very animated doll that fosters ill will toward all. What's worse is the doll is transmigratory, craving the boy's body as his next address. Chef d'effects Kevin Yagher's new toy is bad, real bad, and so are the other part two FX. Little Chucky's saga, however grows a tad tiresome. A bad example for small children. 84m/C VHS, DVD . Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter, Gerrit Graham, Christine Elise, Grace Zabriskie; D: John Lafia; W: Don Mancini; C: Stefan Czapsky; M: Graeme Revell; V: Brad Dourif.
