As he lay dying, he transfers his soul into a Good Guy doll using the power of voodoo. A peddler finds him and sells him to Karen Barclay who then gives her son the doll as a birthday present. Chucky manipulates 6-year old Andy Barclay into helping him seek out those responsible for his death: his getaway driver Eddie Caputo and Det. Norris. He kills Andy’s babysitter Maggie initially and then finds Eddie Caputo and kills him. He tries to kill Det. Norris but gets shot so he visits his voodoo mentor who informs him he must transfer his soul into another body. He kills his mentor and goes after Andy at the hospital.
