puppet-master-2It’s October 1st which can only mean one thing and that it is the countdown to Halloween has officially begun. That also means that Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween has officially begun and taken over the blog as well. We start off the month long blog post today with Puppet Master 2 as the choice for today’s. A team of paranormal researchers decide that they want to investigate a hotel that once housed famous European puppeteer Andre Toulon (Steve Welles). What the team doesn’t realize is that a gang of puppets that belonged to Toulon have resurrected him from the dead. The puppets are then assigned a task of stealing the brain fluid from the team in order to transfer himself into new bodies. Will the team survive or will they fall victim to his sinister plan? The film also stars Elizabeth Maclellan (Crash And Burn) as Carolyn Bramwell/Elsa, Collin Bernsen (General Hospital) as Michael Kenney, Greg Webb (The Baron And The Kid) as Patrick Bramwell, Charlie Spradling (To Sleep With A Vampire) as Wanda, Jeff Celentano (American Ninja 2: The Confrontation) as Lance, Nita Talbot (Night Shift) as Camille, George ‘Buck’ Flower (They Live) as Matthew, Sage Allen (Ed) as Martha, and the film was directed by David Allen (Ghostbusters II).

pm-2As far as the film is concerned, it’s your a typical late 80’s/early 90’s horror film with the one mandatory sex scene and some shots of cleavage to go with it. It was a decent story with a decent angle, but it was kind of cheesy at times. The on strong point of the film in my opinion was the acting from Steve Welles who was dressed like the invisible man for most of the film before he transports himself into a life size dummy/doll. His acting abilities shined through in this film ans you definitely payed attention. It was definitely cool to see the puppets of course and the mayhem they cause. The one thing that confused me about them is they are all gung ho about murdering for brain fluid, but they change their minds towards the end and it happens out of nowhere. The puppets look pretty legit in the film, but sometimes you can see where the puppeteer is there especially with the big guy Pinhead as his arms are life like. The only thing that really looked fake was when they were transferred into the life size dolls because you can see that it’s a mask they are wearing, but isn’t that the fun of it. If you love Puppet Master and all the puppets that were always in it then do yourself a favor and check this one out.  I am going to give the film an C+ for a final grade cause it’s an honest grade.
