Slightly Better Than Part Four
9 October 2011 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Puppet Master 5 (1994)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Number five picks up right after the events in the previous film. This one starts off with Rick (Gordon Currie) behind bars accused of killing those poor souls from part four. He gets released and he and his girlfriend (Chandra West) get caught up with the puppets who are once again doing battle against the evil Demon God and his smaller creatures. PUPPET MASTER 5 is certainly a step up from the previous film but that's really not saying too much. Director Jeff Burr filmed the two installment back to back and this one here certainly has a better path as to where it's going even if the story with the Demon God was incredibly silly. The middle of this film has some thugs breaking into Toulon's hotel where they're searching for the puppets who of course have to use their weapons to destroy them. As with the previous film, this one here has the puppets playing good guys so the film offers up some bad guys that they can kill and still consider themselves as good. At least this section of the film enters the horror trappings of idiots being locked up inside a creepy hotel where they're picked off one by one. With that said, the story itself really isn't anything special as once again the human characters aren't interesting and I think the puppets too get the short shifted. The puppets at least get a few more kills under their belts but the film has pretty much milked them of any personality with the exception of Blade who gets a few good scenes. Both Currie and West are pretty bland as the leads but horror fans will enjoy seeing Clu Gulager from THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Once again the special effects have clearly lost some of their budget from the first three films. The effects aren't nearly as effective and they're also used a lot less than the previous entries. Don't even get me started on the Demon God outfits that looks to be something made for a high school play.
