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 »
(at around 5 mins) When the puppet Blade is racing around the Bodega Bay Inn grounds, he runs towards the street and stops at the curb just when a car nearly runs him over, and we see the side of the tire. But when the door opens and the two assassins walk out, we see nothing near the car where that doll should be, nothing even close to the car. After that overhead shot, the POV shows him running from behind the tree but there was no time to get there. See more »
The 1989 UK video version was cut by 3 secs by the BBFC to remove brief shots of a woman's breasts during the fantasy assault scene in the elevator. The shots were also missing from the Film 2000 DVD which featured the R-rated print. See more »
Although some people seem to comment 'cheesy' and 'childs play rip-off' I enjoyed watching it. I like Childs Play more than this but still Puppetmaster is well worth watching. Other people comment on the ending not being good and why would they do that? Well duh! Its so they could leave the door open for sequel (which they did) I thought the different puppets were cool coughing up leeches, drilling through people hey theres something for everyone! I think if you like movies like Childs Play or you like general splatter-fests then this is the movie for you.
