Child's Play 3 (1991)


The movie Child’s Play 3 (1991) is a horror film directed by Jack Bender and written by Don Mancini. It is the third installment in the Child’s Play series. The movie stars Justin Whalin, Perrey Reeves, Jeremy Sylvers, and Brad Dourif. The story takes place eight years after the events of Child’s Play 2 (1990) and one month before the events of Bride of Chucky (1998). The film was executive-produced by David Kirschner, who produced the first two Child’s Play films.

The movie Child’s Play 3 (1991) begins with a splash of blood from Chucky’s corpse being mixed in with the molten plastic being used to produce Good Guy dolls, reviving him in an updated body. Chucky is given to Play Pals CEO Mr. Sullivan, who he tortures using various toys before strangling him to death. Chucky then uses computer records to locate Andy Barclay (Justin Whalin), who has been sent to Kent Military School after failing to cope in several foster homes. Andy befriends cadets Harold Aubrey Whitehurst, Ronald Tyler, an 8-year-old cadet, and Kristin De Silva, for whom he develops romantic feelings. He also meets Brett C. Shelton, a sadistic lieutenant colonel who routinely bullies the cadets. Tyler is asked to deliver a package to Andy’s room. Tyler realizes that the package contains a Good Guy doll, recognizing the logo from a TV commercial he’d seen shortly prior, and takes it to the school’s weapons armory to open it. Chucky bursts from the package and is incensed to find Tyler instead of Andy but remembering he can possess the first person who learns his true identity, he tells Tyler his secret. Before Chucky can enact the ritual, Colonel Cochrane interrupts them and confiscates the doll, throwing it into a garbage truck.

Chucky later kills Shelton and uses his blood to write a message on a wall in Andy’s room. The next day, Tyler is found dead and Andy is blamed for his murder. Chucky then reveals himself to Shelton’s assistant Joanne Simpson (Dakin Matthews) and forces her to help him transfer his soul into Andy’s body.

Chucky then goes on a killing spree at the military academy while trying to transfer his soul into Andy’s body. In the end, they defeat Chucky by dropping him in a giant fan.
