Suspicious fires are being set, and Arson Inspector Donald "Shadow" Rimgale (Robert De Niro) steps in to investigate. The investigation leads to corrupt Alderman Marty Swayzak's (J.T. Walsh) connection to jailed pyromaniac Ronald Bartel (Donald Sutherland). Meanwhile, Brian suspects that his brother Stephen might be playing an important role in the arsons.

Chucky is six-year-old Andy Barclay's (Alex Vincent) new doll; however, Chucky is possessed by the soul of a dead murderer (Brad Dourif), which leads to the terrorization of Andy through Chucky's evil deeds. Murders take place, and when Andy tells people that Chucky did it, no one pays attention. Andy's mother Karen (Catherine Hicks) asks Detective Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon) to investigate. Because Mike is romantically interested in Karen, he agrees even though he does not believe Andy's stories–until Chucky starts to strangle him. Sequels follow.
