At the beginning, when the puppet Blade is racing around the Bodega Bay Inn grounds, he runs over to the car that had just pulled up. When the door opens and the two assassins walk out, you can see three crew members in the car door window reflection. Two of them are down on their knees holding the camera portraying Blade's birds eye vision. Another is standing on the grass watching over. See more »
I am not convinced this can be classed as a horror. Haha
I had seen this film a very long time ago and didn't remember much about it... other than the obvious... a load of puppets go killing people.
It has not dated very well, but I did enjoy it in a weird kind of way.
The acting was awful and the effects were terrible... but I can imagine for the time they were good.
I loved the puppets though... they were horrible.
There were some really funny moments in the movie too... and I am not just talking about the sexy hairstyles they had back then. Haha
There is one puppet that has huge arms and a tiny head, his name was Pinhead, he was great. You could clearly see in some scenes that they were someone's hands poking through the body of a dummy and picking things up etc... it looked so bad that it made it great!
The puppet with a drill on his head, named Tunneler is good and Blade is easily recognisable. Probably the most famous puppet of them all...
One of my favourites though is the lady puppet named Leech Woman... she regurgitates leeches onto her victims... really gross, but cool.
This film has got a cult following and about a million sequels which I have not seen... but after seeing this again and enjoying it I will be looking out for them. J
Not the best horror from its time, but still very enjoyable and funny.
I will give this film 7 out of 10...
I get a feeling though the sequels will probably get worst and worst.
