The official trailer for Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich is an overload of nostalgia. Filled with blood soaked campiness, the official trailer seems to pay homage to its humble beginnings at Full Moon.
With big names tied to the film, like S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk) and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (The Meg), the film seems grandiose in the sense that this new reimagined Puppet Master is bigger, badder, and unlike anything we have seen before. The storyline is as follows:
“Recently divorced and upset, Edgar (Thomas Lennon) returns to his childhood home to reorganize his life. When Edgar finds an evil-looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some money at a city convention celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the notorious murders of Toulon. The girl next door, Ashley, and her comic book boss, Markowitz (Nelson Franklin), join Edgar on this forced road trip. Hell is unleashed when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, making them the authors of a cursed homicidal madness motivated by an evil as ancient as time.”
Udo Kier (Suspiria, Blade, Brawl in Cell Block 99), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!, Santa Clarita Diet), Nelson Franklin (HBO’s Veep), Charlyne Yi (This is 40), and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) will all fight for their lives in this revamped classic. Talk about a knock out cast!
This new entry to the Puppet Master franchise looks to ramp up the body counts. As a fan of the original, I am ready to put on my poncho, take my seat in the splash zone and let the bloodshed begin!
With an entertaining, fun; feel to the film, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich will definitely stand out from the rest of the lineup. Whether that ends up being a good thing, we will have to see.
Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich will hit theaters and On-Demand August 17.
