The Puppet Master movies were a series of evil toy horror films that see a bunch of killer puppets picking off the occupants of a hotel one by one.
Full Moon’s Puppet Master movie is light on plot, but the evil puppets themselves are huge fun, each with a highly distinctive design and with their own methods of killing.
Blade is the leader of the puppets. He has a pale face with empty eye sockets and wears a wide-brimmed hat. He is possessed by the ghost of an evil Nazi scientist. Blade has a sharp hook for one hand and knife for the other. Sometimes he can shoot bullets out of his empty sockets.
Pinhead has a tiny bald head and a big muscled body. His two big hands that can deliver an enormous punch. He is possessed by a man who was killed by the Nazis for trying to give food to starving Jewish people.
Torch has a flame-thrower for his right hand that is used to burn people alive.
Tunneler is a puppet with a drill on top of its head. It is inhabited by the ghost of an American Soldier who was captured and forced to work in the salt mines by the Nazis.
Jester is haunted by a man who loved to play pranks until he was killed by the Nazis. He can rotate three parts of his face to change his expression. He holds a scepter which he uses as a weapon.
Six Shooter is a cowboy that has six arms each holding a gun. He can climb walls like a spider.
Leech Woman is a female puppet who likes to puke up man-eating leeches.
The film’s cult status has led to an amazing nine sequels, including Curse of the Puppet Master, Retro Puppet Master, Puppet Master The Legacy, and Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys.
