3.0 out of 5 stars Miniature mayhem., 8 July 2012
This review is from: Puppet Master [DVD] (DVD)
Probably the most well known of Charles Band's movies; Puppet Master tells the tale of Andre Toulon, a man who makes puppets with a rather peculiar trait...they're alive.

In 1939 at the Bodega Bay Inn, Toulon's life came to an end. Fortunately though, Toulon managed to hide his creations away from those that sought to learn of his secrets.

Years later of group of psychics who have been experiencing strong visions arrive at the hotel to meet up with a friend of theirs who as it turns out, has died. If that wasn't bad enough Toulon's puppets are on the loose and they don't appear to be friendly.

The film's far from perfect and whilst it's not an essential purchase it does have a certain charm to it.
Sure the sound quality is poor and in some shots you will be able to see a puppeteer's hand or a corpse blink. On the plus side though the puppets themselves are quite interesting and when there are some stop-motion sequences they are really good.

There are a few extras on the DVD including a making of; it's just a shame that this runs for just under 8 minutes
Either way this film is still an interesting little low budget cult classic that has spawned a number of sequels and even crossovers and is worth checking out.
