The director's chair was filled by animator David Allen who had supplied the stop motion puppet effects for the original "Puppetmaster" (1989), this, and others in the series. It would be the only completed feature film he would direct. A personal project, "The Primevals" remained uncompleted when he succumbed to cancer in 1999. See more »
In _Puppet Master_ (1989), It is stated that Andre Toulon killed himself in 1939. However, when Patrick finds his grave in the cemetary, it says he died in 1941. This does, however, fit in with the altered continuity as related in _Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge_ (1991). See more »
Puppet Master II is a good sequel to its predecessor. We are introduced to more of the mythology and a better look at the toys, including a few new ones. The story is good, the acting isn't great and the special effects are good...well for its time.
This is definitely a fun film to watch, especially with friends and a keg of beer, or not depending on your taste.
Like other great cult horror film classics you are introduced to a lot of corny moments, but that is what makes this film so amazing. The corniness is supposed to be there and it works.
As for the VHS transition to DVD not looking good, I think the quality of it makes the cult of it even more enhanced. I like the VHS look, even if it is on DVD. It seems interesting and brings back a lot of memories from my childhood as I as taking my first steps into the horror genre. Definitely worth watching!
