Movie Summary

Jack Bender
Child's Play 3 is the third movie to feature the iconic and malevolent killer doll Chucky (Brad Dourif) as he quests to possess the body of now 16 year-old Andy Barclay (Justin Whalin). Eight years following the events in the last movie, Andy is now a raw recruit enrolled in a military school, while the spirit of Charles Lee Ray comes to occupy a new version of the popular Good Guys dolls. While initially Chucky was bound by the terms of the voodoo spell to transfer his soul into Andy's body, with a newly created form he learns he can simply utilize the body of a new child, Ronald Tyler (Jeremy Sylvers). Seeking to eliminate the only person aware of his dark secret, Chucky travels to the military school intending to murder Andy and all who he has befriended before inhabiting his new body. With only Andy capable of stopping the malevolent spirit within, a race against time begins to stop the evil doll's murderous reign.moreless
