PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH

PMLR16-BLADE-Director: Sonny Laguna & Tommy Wiklund | United Kingdom/USA | 2018 | 90 mins

Recently divorced and reeling, Edgar (Thomas Lennon) returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When he discovers a nefarious-looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash. Girl-next-door Ashley and comic book pal Markowitz join Edgar for a doomed road trip to an auction at a convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.

Fans of Charles Band’s Full Moon Features and the Puppet Master franchise will undoubtedly already be on board with this contemporary reboot. Even if you’re not familiar with the saga’s previous films, there’s enough outrageous gore and bad taste gags here to satisfy fans looking for a new slice of horror comedy.
