    Synopsis


    Puppetmaster
    In this tense horror outing Toulon, a puppet maker, discovers an ancient Egyptian potion and uses it to bring his creations to life. Unfortunately, he is a rather twisted fellow and his puppets become murderous little demons who escape. Distraught, the master takes his life. Years later, psychics tune into the existence of the monstrous marionettes and set off to stop them. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

      Nice 80's Horror Classic

      I looked for this movie for YEARS and got stuck with a worn ex-rental VHS of it for the longest, as the DVD that went out of print, was going for a small fortune on eBay and Amazon. One day, while buying the SE of Hitchcock's "Psycho," I stumbled upon this import DVD and immediately bought it. So onto the review. Plot: 4 psychics, led by somewhat witless Yale professor Alex Whitacre (Paul LeMat) and an alcoholic fortuneteller Dana Hadley (Irene Miracle), are summoned to a hotel for a colleague's funeral. They all suspect something fishy is going on- but are each taken by surprise as living- and murderous- marionettes stalk their every move- and slaughter them one-by-one. Will anyone survive- or will they all become the victims of the Puppet Master? Acting: Very good- for the most part. Golden Globe winner Irene Miracle (who is billed second despite being killed shortly before the end) steals the show with her zany antics and vicious one-liners, and LeMat takes over for the remaining twenty minutes of the movie. Effects: Fantastic- except for a few complicated shots, and they're still decent then. These puppets actually appear to be alive, shocking as it may be, and all have a little personality to their movements, especially Blade, the adorable yet creepy knife-armed puppet, who has most screentime, but I can see why. Overall: The script is pretty good, albeit somewhat slow-moving in the first third. This movie is definitely recommended to horror fans. Now, once the boxset of the entire series was released, I bought IT, and its presentation of PuppetMaster 1 is better than this one, with better picture and soundmix, but it costs $100, and really if you don't want the whole series (THIS movie is the best of the series), this DVD is plenty good enough.

      AWESOME KILLER PUPPET EFFECTS

      "PUPPET MASTER" IS AN AWESOME MOVIE! IT'S A LOW-BUDGET MOVIE ABOUT AN OLD MAN NAMED ANDRE TOULON WHO CREATES 5 PUPPETS NAMED "PINHEAD", "BLADE", "MS. LEECH", "JESTER", AND "TUNNELER". ANDRE TOULON CURSES THEM WITH AN EVIL WIZARD SPELL THAT CAUSES THE PUPPETS TO KILL ANYONE IN SIGHT. THERE IS NOT MUCH GORE BUT THERE IS A LOT OF KILLER PUPPET ACTION. I HAVE FINALLY ADDED "PUPPET MASTER" TO MY HORROR MOVIE COLLECTION! I WOULD RECOMMEND "PUPPET MASTER" TO ANYBODY!
