Did anyone see Bone Tomahawk last year? For shame if you didn’t! But me shaming you aside, it was a western/horror hybrid written and directed by S. Craig Zahler and was one of my favorites of 2015. Building off the acclaim of that movie, what’s Mr. Zahler want to get into next? A remake of 1989’s Puppet Master of course!
I actually kinda dig that poster a lot. So yes, what you’re looking at there is the teaser poster for what will be the new Puppet Master reboot/remake called Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. A quick synopsis is below:
A recently divorced young man discovers a mint condition Blade doll in his deceased brother’s closet and plans to sell the toy at a convention in Oregon celebrating the 30th anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose at the Postville Lodge during the auction when a strange force animates all of the various puppets throughout the convention as they go on a bloody killing spree.
A bloody killing spree at a toy convention? Count me in! The original Puppet Master from Full Moon Features is a definite guilty pleasure of mine, as are some of the sequels before the franchise kinda went off the rails. So what involvement will Full Moon and it’s creator Charles Band have with this sequel/reboot? Word is that Mr. Band will serve as executive producer. I think the bigger question is whether or not The Leech Lady will be making a triumphant and sexy return. Rawwwwrrrrr!
