Trivia

Fangoria writer Preston Fassel revealed during a Q&A at Tulsa's Circle Cinema that in addition to playing one of the hotel guests who runs into the parking lot during the "puppet massacre," he also doubled for Udo Kier for the long tracking shot of Toulon walking into the bar and operated the Tunneler puppet in a deleted scene. This makes him unique in the Puppet Master franchise in that he has technically played Toulon, a puppet, and a puppet victim. See more »

Doesn't Deserve the Bad Reviews
22 May 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

It's not your typical horror movie with puppets. It's got some great writing by S. Craig Zahler which elevated the movie the way Shane Black can do.

I thnink people are giving this bad reviews because it takes a while to get to the action. And frankly, I liked the beginning character development more than the horror part.

It was smart and funny and different.

Make sure you see Zahler's other movies! Especially one of my fav films of 2019 -- Dragged Across Concrete
