Storyline

Andy Barclay has been placed in a foster home after the tragic events of the first film, since his mother was committed. In an attempt to save their reputation, the manufacturers of Chucky reconstruct the killer doll, to prove to the public that nothing was wrong with it in the first place. In doing so, they also bring the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray back to life. As Chucky tries to locate Andy, the body count rises. Will Andy be able to escape, or will Chucky succeed in possessing his body? Written by Phil Fernando

Alternate Versions

Numerous scenes cut from the original version appear on the USA network's version:
  • Two different scenes with Joanne and Phil discussing Andy and the adoption agency letting them keep the children they adopt.
  • An argument between two men in the dark after the worker is electrocuted and the sound of Chucky running. The man lands differently after smashing through the glass window after being electrocuted.
  • Before the assistant calls his girlfriend, he calls his wife and tells her he has to work late.
  • A different ending shows Chucky's face being created through the machines, then Chucky gives an evil smile, much like the beginning of Child's Play 3.
  • A scene where Kyle stops in an alleyway to search for the newspaper delivery truck with Andy and Chucky in it.
  • Kyle tells Chucky "playtime's over" just before he gets disfigured.
  • Kyle assures Andy that he can make his way past the eyeball machine while trying to escape the factory.
  • A scene right after Phil nearly runs into a Play Pal's truck, Joanne asks Andy if he's alright.
  • A different ending is shown than the one in the theatrical release. It shows Kyle and Andy coming out of the factory, after Andy asks where home is, Kyle responds by saying she has no idea then says it looked like she was stuck with Andy, which is followed by a scene in the factory where Chucky's face is made with an evil grin on it.

Chucky Has His Energizers!
16 December 2001 | by BaronBl00dSee all my reviews

Chucky, the sweet-faced lovable little doll filled with the soul of a voodoo loving serial killer, is back in his second feature, aptly if not originally named Child's Play 2. The only other member of the cast of the original film to return is the young Alex Vincent as the boy Chucky must kill so as to not permanently be imprisoned in the body of the doll. Brad Douriff is back as the maniacal voice of the pint-sized murderer. What you would expect from a sequel of this caliber is pretty much what you get. Little plot, little characterization, lots of killing, lots of blood, lots of gore effects, and a Chucky that comes back, comes back, comes back, comes back, and comes back. I got so tired of watching Chucky come out of situations where he was supposed to be 'dead" that it was like a test of endurance for my common sense. Vincent does a good job with his role, but the film really lacks from the freshness and individuality of the original film's characters. I don't know why people that make horror sequels always think it is just the gore and blood which makes the first film popular. They are integral parts, but the film probably(not always) has other elements that appeal to people over 15. This sequel eliminates those elements and makes it very clear that its intended audience is between 15-19. Pity, because I found the first film very effective and slightly intelligent on one level. This film is really nothing more than one killing after another until we get to the factory where other Chuckies are made and the real nonsense begins in what has to be one of the most ridiculous finales of a horror film I have seen in some time. Now it sounds like I am really bashing this film...and I am...but one small concession on my part is that the film moves by quickly and is entertaining on a bad its good level.
