The Blade puppet was also designed after David Schmoeller's favorite actor, Klaus Kinski. 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 »
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 »
Entertaining, old fashioned piece of feel-good horror!
"Puppet Master" is a wonderful, good-hearted slice of old-fashioned horror nonsense from the imagination of Charles Band. Whilst short on plot, it features a variety of pretty unusual characters, some fiendishly good stop-motion and stunt puppets and a few excellent set-pieces with just enough of the red stuff thrown in for good measure.
There are some fun performances from the cast which includes the rather sexy Irene Miracle ("Inferno") and an appearance from William Hickey ("National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", "Prizzi's Honour", etc.).
It's one of those few feel-good horror movies, ideal for Christmas viewing!
