NOTE: DEFINITELY NOT FOR CHILDREN The Puppet Monster Massacre is pretty crazy, and it's hard to say what audience it would most appeal to, but if you're somebody who likes puppets, gore, and monster movies, there is a pretty good shot this movie will work for you.

The Good: The voice work on most of the puppets is pretty good, with funny, cartoonish voices in most cases. There are some standard but entertaining gags using the puppets- merry chase scenes, jokes about how inarticulate felt puppet hands are, etc. Oddly, the plot itself is kind of cool, involving a Nazi scientists revenge planned over many years, revealed in a cartoon flashback of WWII that is strangely powerful to a film primarily about silly puppets. For the more comical gore enthused, some of the puppets die in particularly hilarious fashions with enough blood effects to keep it interesting.

The Bad: The music of the film is a bit lackluster, which makes some scenes feel very plodding and quiet. A few running gags run so far as to kill the joke. The female voices in the film are a bit under played compared to the goofy male voices around them. Near the end, things take such a dark turn that the comedy of it is nearly destroyed, leading to a somewhat disappointing last few minutes.

Overall: Sometimes it didn't know whether it was a comedic film with a horror movie backdrop or a horror film made with puppets, and the ambiguity can turn some people off. If you really find puppets funny or have some kind of hatred for them and wish to seem them rendered, this is probably a good fit for you. The Puppet Monster Massacre is a one of a kind film thats hard to forget, with some cool plot elements that defy it's silly nature. If nothing else, it was an interesting film that kept me watching until the end.
