Alex Whittaker and three other gifted psychics are investigating rumors that the secret of life has been discovered by master puppeteer Andre Toulon. But the psychics soon discover that the way Toulon has discovered the secret of death is in the form of five killer puppets and each one is designed for murder. Tunneler is the puppet who has a drill on his head and he uses it to kill his victims.. Ms. Leech vomits killer leaches that suck their victims dry. Pinhead strangles his enemies with his huge hands. Blade has a hook for one hand and a knife for the other. Then there is Jester, who pretty much just sits there. Together they kill for their Puppet Master.
I had seen bits and pieces of this series when it was played on tv. I have never set down and watched a full Puppet Master film, but today I saw the box set at my local Sam Goody so I figured I would get it. Well I first watched the original Puppet Master. I wasn’t expecting much from it. But I was a little surprised. The movie starts out very slow but soon picks up once everyone arrives at the hotel. Everytime I hear Pinhead’s name, who is one of the puppets in this film with the huge hands. I always think of a Hellraiser movie. But still, this isn’t a bad movie. It’s not the best, but it’s a 10 year old straight-to-video movie. So I say one late night, just rent the movie stay up late and enjoy. I give this movie a 6 out of 10.
