Beginning in 1989, the Puppet Master franchise has insanely spawned nearly a dozen sequels, prequels and even a non-cannon crossover film in 2004’s Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys starring Corey Feldman. Well, here we are in 2018 and we have a new addition to the franchise in Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich.
Co-directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund (Wither, Animalistic) from a script by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99), the newest entry to the Puppet Master franchise stars Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Michael Paré (Eddie and the Cruisers), Udo Kier (Blade), Charlyne Yi (This is 40), the goddess Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) and many more!
Here is the official synopsis:
Recently divorced and reeling, Edgar returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When Edgar finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash. Girl-next-door Ashley and and comic book pal Markowitz join Edgar for a doomed road trip to an auction at a convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.
Set for a small theater release and On-Demand release on August 17th, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, producers Fangoria released the below Red Band trailer for the film. Enjoy!
Stay gory my friends.
