In a 1999 interview with horror movie website The Terror Trap, director David Schmoeller admitted the reason he was not involved with the rest of the "Puppet Master" series, aside from a character credit, was that it would reveal someone else besides Full Moon CEO Charles Band was responsible for the creation of Full Moon's biggest franchise. Schmoeller was never even approached to do a director's commentary for the first "Puppet Master" movie when it first arrived onto DVD. In the same interview, he also mentioned that Band still owed him residuals. See more »
When Dana is walking down one hall with Leroy and a bottle of champagne, the exit sign is backwards. Another indication that this shot was flipped is that the bottle of champagne and the dog switch hands in the very next shot; which isn't flipped, and was filmed in the same hallway. See more »
Just a little bit of sauce and Dana can become quite the cynic.
I am not a cynic, Frank! I like to think of myself as a nasty bitch.

The extended version was also published onto a MovieCD by the now-defunct software company Sirius Publishing on CD-ROM format during the late 1990s. See more »
This flick has developed quite a reputation as being a minor "cult classic", but actually it's not very good. Not very good at all. The story is shallow (I hear that it's further developed in the sequels, but that doesn't mean much for the viewers of this particular film), the characters are mostly uninteresting or unlikable, and the special effects, though cleverly conceived at times, show their age (already). There is also not much gore and not much suspense. (*1/2)
