Foul-mouthed killer doll Chucky returns in this noisy, mindless sequel. Young protagonist Andy is now a 16-year-old personified by handsome Justin Whalin. First reel prolog is devoted to venal businessman Peter Haskell starting up production on the Good Guy dolls eight years after the factory catastrophe limned in Child’s Play 2.

First doll off the assembly line is Chucky, possessed by the spirit of dead murderer Brad Dourif (who again ably voices the creature’s wisecracks). Chucky tracks Whalin to a military school, has himself mailed there and then becomes obsessed with transferring his spirit to a pint-sized black cadet (Jeremy Sylvers).

Fine doll effects and sporadic gore are par for the genre. Acting is good, with honors going to the original Directorty Harry nemesis, Andrew Robinson, amusing as the school’s obsessive barber.
