Don't fuck with the Chuck.
Andy Barclay's second bout with the possessed Good Guy doll was a decent hit, so why not let these two duke it out for round 3. And while you're at it series' writer Don Mancini, could you hurry it the f**k up? This movie was rushed into production before the 2nd film even hit theaters. Universal was thinking FRANCHISE FRANCHISE FRANCHISE here with Chucky and didn't want to sit on him. So, 9 months later, Child's Play 3 was released to theaters. Rushed, with a creator out of ideas at the time, this is what we get.
fifth Dirty Harry film The Dead Pool. I've seen that movie many times and I can't tell you anything of Justin in that movie. I think he's most notable as being the replacement Jimmy Olsen on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from Season 2 until the end. Apparently Michael Landes looked too much like Dean Cain and got the axe. If not from that, then people might recognize him as the lead in that amazing Dungeons & Dragons film adaptation from 2000. No? Serial Mom, then? Or then likely this movie we're talking about today. Well, he was this up and comer that was rather more of the poor man's Jonathan Taylor-Thomas type that may be on TV and moreso graces so many Bop and teen girl magazines than produce any actual worthwhile product.
HERE. Basically, there was something they did to the boys revolving them splashing blue paint on the victim which resembled Chucky doing the same in this film. They accused the father's rental of the movie months prior to have been the source to all this. But, you know, after they actually sit and ask these people they found out the boy in question hadn't been living with his father for a while and also didn't like horror movies. So there ya go. Always easiest to point the blame somewhere other than the individual.
