An Enjoyable Film And Keeps The PM/DT Series Going
22 December 2004 | by (Brooklyn Park, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I found Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys to be an enjoyable film. The first reason I liked it was the fact this was an all original film, in the sense that it didn't use repeat scenes from past films. Curse of the Puppet Master, Puppet Master: The Legacy, and Dollman vs Demonic Toys all suffer heavily from showing a barrage of repeat scenes from past Full Moon films. PMvsDT is fresh from start to end, which was great to see. While it does add a new continuity to both series, it does touch upon the old films, perhaps more to the side of PM then DT though. It does pay homage and makes a mention of the events in PM3, and the new background information on the history of the puppets could have a possible connection to Retro Puppet Master.

PMvsDT had one thing I thought the several of the last PM films had been missing. It had humor and it was fun to watch, really fun. Besides Baby Oopsie's cracks, limited swearing, and one liners, Corey Feldman's Robert Toulon had some goofy and humorous moments. The way he portrayed the character of Robert Toulon gave us a new kind of Puppet Master. He did have a touch of that vengeance within him, like Andre Toulon wanted to avenge the loss of his wife and friends, ready to go whatever it took to get his daughter back. Robert had that fun energy inside of him like Rick Myers, the Puppet Master of PM 4 and 5 had. Robert Toulon added a new element to being a Puppet Master, being a family guy, having his daughter Alex to care for.

Many PM fans were disappointed by the fact that not every Toulon puppet returned for this film, only four, Blade, Six-Shooter, Pinhead, and Jester are in this film. One report I heard was that Sci-Fi Channel just wanted these four in the film, the reasons for that not currently known. While it would have been great to see everyone of them, people have to realize that these films are on limited budgets, they do all that they can with what they have available and possible. Besides, by only having four puppets, you can focus on them more. In Retro Puppet Master, there were six puppets, but three of the six didn't contribute much to the film. Retro Tunneler didn't do anything other than make appearances, Cyclops did the same as Retro Tunneler except playing a part in connecting past/present, and Retro Six Shooter only had one scene of glory. In Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, all four puppets play a important part, both when they are in regular form and Cyber form. They all get their shining moments. I thought Blade, Six-Shooter, Pinhead, and Jester all looked well, both in regular and cyber forms. They were all a tad different than past films, different sculpts were used, but I liked the look because it stayed mostly true to how they looked before.

As for the Demonic Toys, they are only three, and once again, I think this is because of Sci-Fi's request. All three have been altered in looks, looking much less frightening than in the previous two DT films. However, at the plot of this film, they are toys called Christmas Pals, which are being sold around the world to millions of kids. At the start of the film, they show a television ad for Christmas Pals, where Baby Oopsie Daisy and Teddy Bear are shown being all cute and loved by children. Now, if they had looked like how they did in the original two films, I think sales would have been quite low. Part of being demonic is trickery, fooling people, so Erica Sharpe is fooling millions with her Demonic Toys, which if the plan hatched by her and the evil Demon Ba'al works, millions of Demonic Toys will rise Christmas morning, spreading chaos across the world. That would've been something to see.

All in all, I really enjoyed this film, I plan to purchase it on DVD when it comes out, and I hope a sequel is made.
