This prequel to the first two Puppet Master films is set in Berlin during the second World War. The Nazis are trying to develop a drug that will bring the dead back to life, and hunt down Andre Toulon, a puppet master who has used a formula to bring his puppets to life. The Nazi's kill Toulon's wife, and, with the help of his puppets, he seeks revenge. The special effects and acting are a step up from the first two films, but this one lacks the intensity of the first two. Maybe it's how the puppets gravitate even more to the good side, I don't know, but it didn't keep my interest like the first two films. Add to this some continuity issues (in the original Toulon kills himself in 1939, but this film is set in 1941) and you are left with a film that doesn't quite live up to what came before it. I do still enjoy this one, however. The death scenes are pretty decent and Six Shooter, a staple puppet in all the films to follow, is introduced in this film.
Again, this is not on par with the first two movies in the series, but it is still worth a watch.
