The original "Puppet Master" (1989) was an excellent horror movie, and the biggest success for the production company Full Moon. The first two sequels were certainly okay, they both had something to add to the original story. After that, Puppet Master 4 and 5 were shot back-to- back: awful cheap PG-13 movies which really sucked in a big way. That can also be said for the sixth and seventh one. "Puppet Master: The Legacy" was more of a homage, a best-of which included mostly scenes from the earlier ones. It was the eight one if I'm not mistaking.
No idea why they had to make another one (part 9 or 10 already, I lost track). Directed by David DeCoteau. He also directed the third one which was actually a pretty good sequel. But that was a-l-o-n-g time ago. He's responsible for cheap garbage like the "Brotherhood" movies. He really should be locked up for crap like that. "Puppet Master: Axis of Evil" is not really that better. The best moments are in the beginning when scenes from the original one are included with William Hickley as Andre Toulon. That is also the big flaw because the quality of those scenes and the new movie couldn't be more different. The story sucks, the cast is pretty awful and painfully to watch. The characters make no sense at all. The puppets are given a very limited screen time. The best scenes are.. again the clips from the original movie. No real horror or gore here, no tension or thrills. Just boring from start to finish.
I hope there will never be another Puppet Master sequel and that DeCoteau will never make another "movie".
This franchise is just like the "Hellraiser" franchise: it really is a trilogy, the rest is just totally awful...
