I don't have much to say about Puppet Master V. It more or less treads all the waters of its predecessor. The movie takes place just after PM4. The next day in fact (they were shot back to back). Rick is being questioned by the cops (who else, the sushi bar attendents?) about the previous nights ensuing mayhem. While trying to sort out all of this crap, Rick finds out from Lauren that more puppet-related chaos is on the way.
It appears Suteckh, the villian from the previous chapter, has decided he has no choice but to take things into his own hands after lastnight's failure. He transfers his power and mind into a single totem and sends it to the human realm. This doesn't settle all that well with our protagonists. A totem-puppet tustle erupts.
Since this was shot right with PM4 it is more or less the same movie. Same actors, same puppets (except for Torch, who for some reason was conspicuous by his absence in the last), same villain, same everything. Which brings up a question. If Suteckh could just put himself into a totem or more, why didn't he do that in the first place? What did he want to get paid for TWO movies?
I really can't find myself to recomend this to anyone except hardcore Puppet Master fans. Even a large group of them dislike. Not that it's any worse than the previous (which is unpopular as well). But it doesn't bring anything new to the table. Only for PM fans who want to see all of the pictures as part of a huge Puppethon.
