Rather slow Cultclassic

Being a fan of b-flicks and cultmovies, I was aware of this movie's reputation. So, why not give it a chance? Was I appointed? No, not really ... but was I excited?! Neither! This movie has an original storyline, is shot on a nice location and the special effects are OK (they look sometimes a bit silly, but in movies like this, there's one golden rule: how sillier, how much more fun!) But, in general, this is a rather slow and boring movie. It has some great (and sick) scenes ... but that doesn't cover up for the rest of the movie. This movie constantly repeats itself. I really had the feeling that the director had problems to fill his 90 minutes. So ... is it a waste of time?! No, you'll have fun with it. Just don't expect too much of this 'cultclassic' PS: Just like Child's Play, this movie is about dolls and puppets ... but that doesn't mean it's suitable for young children. A wise advice to all you babysitters out there!

Much Better Than I Would Have Believed

I thought this would be very low-grade horror and dumb with poor special- effects, but I was surprised: it was good.....very entertaining. It inspired me to see the sequels, too, and they - most notably the third one - were good, too. It's a little slow to start with, but once the puppets begin their attack story gets interesting, concluding with a gruesome ending. William Hickey gets decent billing in here but he's only in the film for a short time in the beginning. After that, it's just Paul LeMat and a bunch of unknown actors. In all, not super but more-than-decent entertainment for an hour-and-a-half.

A reasonably fun piece of trashy cinema.

Puppet Master spawned at least 6 sequels. None of these are as good as this first outing, although part 2 deserves note for it's flamethrower toting Torch puppet. When I initially saw Puppet Master I was fairly new to the Horror genre and thought it was fantastic. Three years on and with the benefit of hindsight and perspective, Puppet Master is okay, but isn't going to set your world alight. So long as you don't lose sight of the fact that this is Straight-To-Video trash in it's purest form, you'll never have any trouble fully enjoying what Puppet Master has to offer. The bad acting, cheesy music and noisy splatter effects are all part and parcel of what you should expect from American B-Movie horror, but there's a great charm and knowing sense of fun about the movie lacking from a lot of movies with more money thrown at them. Most of this is the result of the painstaking work put into bringing the puppets to life. The puppets are a mix of animatronics, pure animation and some improvised techniques, and as a result have a life all of their own, making them far more watchable than the cast. Although Irene Miracle and Paul LeMat put in fairly decent turns, the rest of the cast are shocking (and not in the good way you normally associate with horror) and hopefully people you've never seen in anything else, meaning you will spend the movie rooting for the puppets. All in all, for a movie so utterly riddled with problems, Puppet Master is still a fun ride. I certainly have no qualms recommending it for a quick rental or a rainy day, but I'll warn you one last time, it is cheesy, gory and trashy so it won't be for everyone.
