Set twenty-five years after Child's Play, a Chucky doll, arrives in the mail of the family home of paraplegic Nica and her mother, Sarah. That night Sarah is found dead from a stab wound and her death proclaimed a suicide.

The next day Nica's older sister Barb arrives, accompanied by her husband, Ian; daughter, Alice; live-in nanny, Jill; and Father Frank, a priest. Alice finds Chucky and keeps him. Nica and Alice cook chili for dinner, and Chucky secretly pours rat poison into one of the bowls. Father Frank eats the poison, and after leaving the house, is beheaded in a fatal car crash.

After everyone else has gone to their rooms to sleep, Nica attempts to track down the origins of the Chucky doll. She looks up "Chucky Doll Evidence" on the internet, where she finds news articles of the unsolved Chucky murders and the doll's link to dead serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Chucky sneaks out of Alice's bed and kills Jill by kicking a bucket of rain water over onto the floor's power outlets. Jill is electrocuted to death, which also causes a blackout. Barb gets up to check on Alice, and finds Chucky sitting on the stairs that lead to the attic. Thinking that Alice is in the attic, Barb goes up to look for her, but she is killed by Chucky with a kitchen knife. With the elevator unusable due to the blackout, Nica crawls up the stairs to the first floor. Barb is already dead by the time she gets there, and Chucky reveals himself to Nica. Nica wakes up Ian, who takes Nica to the garage before going back into the house to find Alice.

Chucky enters the garage and starts the car, trying to kill Nica with carbon monoxide poisoning. Ian returns to the garage and, believing that Nica is responsible for the murders, disarms her. There is a hidden camera on Chucky, which Ian had planted to get evidence of Barb's affair with Jill. Ian reviews the footage, which shows that Alice is locked in a closet and Chucky is alive. Before Ian can act, Chucky uses Nica's wheelchair to run Ian over and kills him with a hatchet. Nica manages to break out of her restraints and decapitates Chucky with the hatchet, but he survives and reattaches his head.

Chucky pushes Nica over the balcony and she falls to the ground floor. Bleeding heavily Nica asks why Chucky is doing this and through flashbacks, Chucky explains that he was a friend of the family a long time ago and was in love with Sarah. Chucky killed Nica's father and kidnapped Sarah while she was heavily pregnant. When Chucky realized Sarah betrayed him by calling the police, he stabbed her in the stomach, which caused Nica to be born paraplegic, and fled. Chucky's flight from the police lead to his death as a human, setting off the events of the franchise, which is why he came back to Sarah for revenge. A police officer arrives at the house, but when he enters he only sees Barb's body upstairs and Nica holding the bloody knife. Chucky watches, unmoving, from a nearby chair.

Sometime later, Nica is found guilty of the murders and sent to a mental asylum. The arresting officer takes Chucky away in a plastic bag to be delivered to an unknown person. While in his car, Tiffany pops up in the backseat and slits his throat. Tiffany holding the bag, asks Chucky "Who's next?". Then, she mails Chucky to his next target.

Alice, now living with her grandmother, comes home from school to find Chucky waiting for her. Alice asks where her grandmother is, to which Chucky replies "In the cellar". Afterwards, Chucky persuades Alice to play "Hide The Soul", starting a chant that is supposed to transfer his soul to Alice's body. In an unexpected jump-scare, Alice's grandmother pops up outside the cellar door with a plastic bag over her face, revealing Chucky tried to asphyxiate her.

In a post-credits scene set six months later, Chucky is delivered to the now adult Andy Barclay. When Andy turns his back to answer a phone call from his mother, Chucky cuts his way out of the package with a knife. Andy, having anticipated Chucky coming after him, holds a shotgun to Chucky's head and quotes, "Play with this", before pulling the trigger

L² Comment:
After 9 years, Chucky is back and this time he attacks the whole family of Pierce. The poor wheelchair girl defeats Chucky and is the only survivor (except the small girl Alice)... Overall the storyline is ok and kinda exciting and spooky as well...Hopefully there will be new Chucky movie coming out soon
