Puppet Master Box Set 2009 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Apparently someone out there had the good sense to re-release the box set of the brilliant Full Moon series “Puppetmaster”. Fans of the series will recall the previous ill luck that befell the original release back in 2000 when they had to recall the sets due to licensing issues with the now defunct Pioneer. (According to rumor, Full Moon had not gotten approval from Pioneer to sell the series on DVD.)
The box set is comprised of the first seven films in the series, from the first wonderful Puppetmaster to the inferior sequels that came after it. I have to admit- I really didn’t like the later movies nearly as much as I did the first three. They have their “charm”, I suppose, but overall they’re just a little too cheesy for my tastes. There is also an additional disc in the boxset, a collection of trailers for the films. I have to admit that as far as extras go, I was a little underwhelmed. It’s been about 20 years since the first film was released- wasn’t there anything else they could put in there?
Now for what the series is about. Since Amazon has no description of the actual series, I’m going to give a brief outline of the series. Killer puppets that frequently end up in the hands of the wrong people. Ok, so maybe it’s a bit more complex than that, but the beauty of the series lies in how the series’ creators were able to take a simple idea & turn it into one of what is arguably one of the most infamous series in horror. Forget Jason & Freddy. If you haven’t seen this series or at least the first movie, you can’t call yourself a true horror movie buff.
