Summary
Six year old Andy is thrilled when he gets a brand new, cheery Chucky doll for his birthday. He quickly discovers that Chucky is possessed by the soul of a notorious serial killer who swiftly begins terrorizing Andy, his ill fated babysitter and his disbelieving mom. He doesn't stop there. Proving he's nobody to toy with, the demonic doll schemes to transfer his evil spirit out of its kid friendly container, and into Andy!
