A new puppet
master named Dr. Magrew (George Peck) is trying
to make a new race of puppets and meets a
mentally challenged gas station employee named
Robert Winsley (Josh Green) whom is constantly
tormented by a bunch of bullies lead by Joey Carp
(Michael Guerin) but Magrew realises that Robert
has a craft for carving puppets and uses him to
invent his latest creation by becoming his
assistant since his earlier assitant has
dissapeared without a trace.
Robert falls in love with Magrew's daughter Jane
(Emily Harrison) but is constantly tormented in
his nightmares at the same time that he's turning
into Megrew's latest creation since he realises
that he got in too deep working for this evil
genius. He also uses Toulon's puppets to go on a
bloody murderous rampage against his enemies to
top it all off.
There's a good scene with a bully taunting Robert 'Tank' Winsley at
a county gas station which almost looked like a
believeble scene with a mean spirited person
against someone who is slow but the pace needed
to be picked up a bit.
We spot many good moments with Robert talking to Dr. Magrew and Jane mainly at a dinner
table with a shot of Blade with Dr. Magrew discussing his puppets.
We spot many good shots on Robert carving
a puppet and creating it.
We have a good moment with Jane coming on strong with Robert and making
him feel good about himself as well as making out
There's many good nightmare sequences with Robert uncovering sheets from his bed and seeing that he
is turning into a puppet with nice shocked
reactions on him.
There's a good moment with Joey getting nasty towards Jane near a
forest and some of the supporting characters circling around her too as well
as Robert passively telling them to leave
her alone making you wonder if he will snap or
We have a great shot on Joey breaking
into a window into a room with the puppet figure
of Pinhead attacking him.
We spot a good shot on Joey benchpressing and screaming obscenities and other
stuff along with a shot on the puppet figures
Blade and Tunneler appraching him and many shots
on them attacking him.
There's a good moment with a nasty Sheriff Garvey being physical towards Art Cooney and getting demanding with him to find some
There's a nice shot on Robert tied down
on a table with Dr. Masgrew having a discussion
as the scene looked like a cheesy mad
scientist type of feeling to it.
We spot a nice dark shot on Jane picking up a doll figure near some burial area
with it reacting towards her and does well
We have many good camera shots on both Sheriff Garvey and his deputy bering
pinned down and slayed by the puppets with their
intense screaming along with Dr. Magrew cackling madly which looked well done.
There's a good shot on the puppets charging
towards Dr. Magrew with a good camera looking
up on him begging for mercy.
Bottom line is that I
enjoyed almost all of the Puppet Master flicks
but this one seems to be just an excuse to make
another sequel as the puppets don't do much
action in this one due to a slow story. The film
isn't awful but it just doesn't pick up. I mean
we had one called the Final Chapter and that
should be it for the series.
It's interesting spotting some bullies picking on
someone who is slow and a puppetmaster trying to
help him out with his abilities to make puppets
as well as being tormented in his nightmares that
he's turning into a puppet himself.
The action really starts to happen right when the
film is ending and I just thought the whole thing
was pointless which it mainly shows a mentally
challenged person creating a puppet as well as
the other puppets appearing here and there when
they should be doing deadly deeds more so. We
have another one after this which is a prequel.
acting is not the greatest but not too bad
either. George Peck (Dr. Magrew) plays a different
type of puppetmaster who does well with his
gentle words and kind attitude and during the
same time was not too bad when he acts like a mad
scientist. At the same time wasn't as good as his
Emily Harrison (Jane Magrew) does well with her charm and
flirtatious attitude and has the right looks too
to top it all off. She isn't the best actress in
the world but she does what she can for this one.
Josh Green (Robert 'Tank' Winsley) seemed to know his stuff a bit
playing someone who is slow and has the right
brawny type looks that if you cross him he can go
insane bringing it all to life. He shows nice
quiet words to his speech too. His role stood out
quite well. We spot a good blocking moment with him grabbing someone at the front
of his truck and strangling him but yet the
acting looked a bit stale.
Michael Guerin (Joey Carp) tries his best playing a bad
ass in the film and came across it not too shabby
but then again I've seen alot better than his
style on playing these types of roles. Oh well
you can't always win with every actor.
Robert Donavan (Sheriff Garvey) is probably the best actor
playing a redneck sheriff with a nasty attitude
and brought it across very strongly at being just
that. He was someone you wouldn't want in your
every day life at all. He shows nice aggressions
verbally and physically too.

have the good ole opening theme music as always
and along the storyline some clanging and high

Walton as he makes the music sound similar
to the original composer.
