REVIEW: Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

Published

on

If you’re a diehard horror fan who is looking for ridiculous fun, over the top gore, and a damn good time, then the Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund directed ‘Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich’ is perfect.

The film’s synopsis says; “A man sells a nefarious-looking puppet at a small-town convention for some quick cash. Terror soon strikes when an ancient evil animates the other puppets and sends them on a bloody killing spree.” And it delivers on the gore!

The film starts off with a backstory, showing Andre Toulon (Udo Kire) entering a bar and chatting up two creeped out women, a bartender and a patron, who’s romantic relationship revolts the old Frenchmen, and leads him to murdering them and embarking on a devious plan that comes into play years later.

Toulon flees the murder to return to his mansion where he pursued, and murdered by two police officers, one of which is Carol Doreski (Barbara Crampton).

Edgar (Thomas Lennon) returns home to a lukewarm welcome from his parents after a divorcing his wife, and find a mysterious, yet evil-looking doll, in his brother’s room. When his parents offer him no real answers, he does some more investigating to find out about a convention related to Toulon, and invites his new girlfriend, Ashley (Jenny Pellicer) and his co-worker Markowitz (Nelson Franklin) to travel with him to attend, and sell the mysterious doll he found in his brother’s room.

The trio arrive at ‘The Brass Buckle’ a hotel that is hosting the convention and find many more people, like them, who are in possession of a doll, and intrigued by the history of the infamous death of Toulon. They learn about a tour of the Toulon estate given by officer Carol Doreski, who provides her first hand account of the epic confrontation that led to Toulon’s death.

From there, the movie takes off and delivers ridiculousness that is comical, entertaining, and fun.

While the script, or the story, won’t knock your socks off, the movie doesn’t take anything serious, targeting on gore and entertainment that befits a dedicated horror fan.

If you’re looking for mindless fun, this is the ticket, as ‘Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich’ is just that, and a bit more.

REVIEW: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Published

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

This past weekend, and with much anticipation, Andre Ovredal’s ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ hit theaters.

According to the synopsis: “The shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large in the small town of Mill Valley for generations. It’s in a mansion that young Sarah Bellows turns her tortured life and horrible secrets into a series of scary stories. These terrifying tales soon have a way of becoming all too real for a group of unsuspecting teens who stumble upon Sarah’s spooky home.”

Despite the promising premise, I couldn’t find anything to differentiate this film from the run-of-the-mill Goosebumps installment, which left it lacking in many areas, and buried it so deep in stupidity that not even their strong displays of special effects made this a worthwhile time investment.

I couldn’t find a reason to care about any of the main characters such as Stella (Zoe Margaret Colleti) or Ramon (Michael Garza) because this film simply failed to hold my attention.

Rooted in compelling horror stories that may have done well if done completely different, this fill clunked and bored it’s way from start to finish.
