This picks up days after part 4 with Rick Myers being charged with the murders of his colleagues. He gets bailed out by the company he was working for and, while the authorities don't believe his stories of killer mini-demons, Dr. Jennings (Ian Ogilvy) is intrigued. He gets together a shady group of folks to head to the Inn to retrieve these puppets. Of course, Myers has shown up there too. And our old pal Sutek is still around and sends his ultimate creation (the same old mini-demon puppet but with a cape) back to kill. If you needed a sign that the wheels were coming off at Charles Band's Full Moon, look no further than this fifth entry in his top series. Showing pre-Weinstein intuition (without the dollars), Band chopped the script of one film into two and we get this sad excuse for a film, complete with credit padding and a 5 minute on screen recap of the previous entry. Poor director Jeff Burr, a true talent who has been relegated to lower level horror sequels. This just features folks walking around the hotel getting killed. The saddest/funniest/strangest thing is the point of this entry is to once again resurrect Decapitron and have Toulon tell Rick he is the puppet master. Didn't we already do that? Ron O'Neal and Clu Gulagher both have small cameos. Subtitled "The Final Chapter" on the VHS box, this was the last PUPPET MASTER film released by Paramount. The next entry, CURSE OF THE PUPPET MASTER, would appear in 1998.
