Puppet Master Movie Review

Back in the 1940's, puppet master Andre Toulon discoverd an ancient Egyptian formula to create life, and decided to bring his puppets to life. The Nazis then hunted him down, and, just before they could catch him, he commited suicide. Fast forward to the 1980's, and the secret is discovered by Neil Gallagher, who is now dead and sending messages to his psychic friends, who are investigating his mansion with his widow. As the night wears on, Toulon's puppets come back to life and begin to terrorize the humans. I know this sounds like a ridiculous story, and it really is, but this movie has had a special place in my heart since I saw it so many years ago. For it's time (and budget), the effects of the puppets are pretty good. This film introduces us to puppets Leech Woman, Tunneler, Jester, Pinhead, and my personal favorite, Blade.

The puppets in this film are absolutely ruthless, and I love it. The acting leaves a lot to be desired, but that is to be expected in this sort of film and can be overlooked. This movie is certainly no masterpiece in cinema history, and is not for the masses, but I always enjoy it. The movie would also lead to many sequels, all of which will be reviewed in coming days.
