1998 - 95m.

Serial killer turned murderous doll Chucky is brought back to life by his devious ex-girlfriend Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) who he promptly kills after she pisses him off.

Well of course Chucky transfers her soul into a female doll and the murderous duo go on a quest to get a voodoo amulet so they can take over the bodies of the two young lovers they've hitched a ride with.

Self-deprecating humour and some neat murders keeps this mindless sequel watchable for the duration but most of all it's fun, doesn't take itself seriously and has a lot of dark comedic moments.

Apart from a lame closing scene this manages to be a good (hopeful) finale for the series. Loaded with plenty of in-jokes for genre fans.

Followed by Seed Of Chucky.

Directed By: Ronny Yu.
