Evil comes in all sizes!
Toulon, a puppet maker, discovers an ancient Egyptian potion and uses it to bring his creations to life. His puppets become murderous little demons and escape. Distraught, the master takes his life. Years later, psychics tune into the existence of the monstrous marionettes and set off to stop them.
I'm the master, and you're the puppet!
I've lost count how many times I've caught the last 30 or so minutes of this film on cable, but this is the first time I've ever seen it in it's entirety. Despite it's ridiculously low budget of a reportedly $400,000.00, the film still manages to be quite fun and more ambitious then most of it's bigger budgeted contemporaries of the time.
Don't get me wrong. Most of the acting, if not all, is horrendous. The sets are cheap. The direction is only so-so. The special effects are questionable in most instances. At it's core however, you still have some murderous puppets running around in all their glory. Some of them…
Viewed on DVD
A couple of months ago I found The Puppet Master Collection on DVD in a bargain bin.
9 movies for 10 bucks. Having never seen these films I took a chance.
I think might have over paid....
My husband talked me into re-watching the entire Puppet Master series and I'm almost surprised that this re-watch left me somewhat excited for the sequels, only because I really don't remember them at all. It's always fun to recall stuff you haven't seen since you were a kid (and this series actually used to scare me!).
Being a pretty big fan of Stuart Gordon's Dolls, I couldn't help but find this re-watch a bit disappointing in respect to the amount of screen time the puppets receive over the really drawn out middle chunk of the movie (focusing on dreams, psychic activity and sleuthing).
Whoever came up with the concept for the "Leech Woman" puppet is rather brilliant, that thing still…
Film #27 of my Band-tastic Halloween Season
Much like The Toxic Avenger is for Troma, this is Full Moon's flagship franchise.
When Charlie Band saw that the end was near for Empire he got out and started up Full Moon and Puppet Master was the first of a long line of direct to video cheapos.
I expected to enjoy the movie and then trudge my way through the sequels but I ended up liking this movie a lot. Those little puppets are just so fucking cool. You've got Tunneler, Blade, Pinhead, Mrs. Leech, and the Jester. I had a really hard time picking a favorite while I was watching the movie because they're all pretty rad.
I've noticed the story…
I am not a cynic, Frank! I like to think of myself as a nasty bitch.
I think Dana is easily the best character in Puppet Master. But saying a character is "the best character" in Puppet Master is like saying which kind of severe and irritating venereal disease you'd rather contract for 90 minutes.
But perhaps that's a tad dramatic. After all, this guy was one of my favorite horror characters as a kid, and the Puppet Master series has always been one of my guiltiest of pleasures. There was always a strange quirky charm to the films and its killer little stars. Blade, Pinhead (lol), Tunneler, the Jester and Mrs Leech all have distinct little trinkety personalities and…
The original and easily one of the best in the series. This series works better for the most part when the puppets are more villains than anything else. While I like this one, there are still moments that seemed to lose my interest even in a shorter film like this. It is still a must see for horror fans, and fans of killer puppets.
What a movie. This is a classic in the day's I used to search for horror movies involving dolls and toys. Very entertaining.

October Scavenger Hunt #7
Hoop-tober Film 31: 4 of 5 Franchises
A silly film I remember so well from my childhood. Cheesy horror about puppets that probably doesn't do it for new viewers, but for me the nostalgia makes this a four star film.
Every Single Stinkin’ Horror Movie That I’ve Watched In October (2015)
I liked the actual puppets and their animation. Not exactly flashy or anything but I could believe they were alive. Too bad a lot of the movie is pretty darn bland. Bland characters, bland kills, bland and unnecessarily convoluted story. The finale is pretty cool though and a lot bloodier than the rest of the film.

Task #13: A movie featuring evil dolls or puppets.
while it was somehow easy to pinpoint the undertakings it took to pursue fright with the use of practical effects, the actual reality only showed the descent to the vault of one time viewing only. it's hard to say that everything is sloppy or even dull, there was a some sort of herculean effort to further explore the magic of what Child's Play did, in terms of setting one's persona transferred through an inanimate object. the weird fascination that does not get past the horror stage, even with the seemingly creepy environment and mysterious undertakings, was…
I found this movie insanely slow & boring.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This wasn't great (or that good really) by any means but I expected so much worse. The story becomes a mess and the low budget shows but the puppets were surprisingly cool. I was thinking there would be an obvious mascot and the rest would blend together but each one is memorable for me. The leech lady puppet had me dry heaving both times she did whatever her thing was.
I'm morbidly curious about the sequels (there's so many) now.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
