Did You Know?


The director's chair was filled by animator David Allen who had supplied the stop motion puppet effects for the original "Puppetmaster" (1989), this, and others in the series. It would be the only completed feature film he would direct. A personal project, "The Primevals" remained uncompleted when he succumbed to cancer in 1999. See more »


At the beginning of the film, when the puppets bring back Andre Toulon, and you see his undead corpse rise from the pit, when the thunder strikes you can see two strings pulling up his skeletal hands from the grave. See more »

Somewhat better than the first...
18 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Granted, this is only a B-movie, it still delivers an atmosphere of dark, moody suspense. Nothing like Suspiria did, but none the less, Puppet Master II far exceeds the first by several turns. The puppets are more believeable in this one. They don't appear to be as bland as in the first; they have more movement and actions. Toulon as the Invisible man, however, is one of the main low points of the movie. The acting is marginally better than the first...The actors aren't as...bored looking as in the first. The life-size puppets were a very eerie, and gave the film a new twist.

While still under Paramount, Full Moon was able to present a decent Horror movie, with a much bigger budge than any of their $50,000 "wonders" they are putting out now.
