One night, a serial killer named Charles Lee Ray is fatally shot by a police officer named Mike Norris, and casts a voodoo spell that he learned from a witchdoctor to transfer his soul into a "Good Guy" doll. A single mother buys the doll from a street peddler to give to her son Andy as a gift for his sixth birthday, only to discover that the doll is possessed by the serial killer.
