Hi, my name is Matt, and I’m a closet Puppet Master fan. I spent a lot of time prowling the shelves of local video stores in the late 80s/early 90s, and the old Paramount releases of these titles were just too irresistible to skip! And while the movies suffered a steep dip in quality after the third entry, I have a good time with the earliest flicks, even today.
That said, we’re getting word that Charles Band and Co. are currently in China shooting Puppet Master: Axis of Evil, and if the last few movies are any indication, I’m not sure how to take this.
Full Moon recently posted a trio of behind-the-scenes videos hosted by Band that feature an extensive tour around the sets of the newest Puppet Master. They’ll supposedly be updating their YouTube Channel daily, so if, like me, you’re a fan of the series, you’ll want to keep an eye on it.
Like I said, I’ve got a soft spot. Charles Band doesn’t always deliver (and sometimes his output is so bad it defies shamelessness), but he certainly seems excited about what will hopefully be a new beginning for Full Moon. I’m aware that their stuff doesn’t approach the world of high art, but some of it is a lot of fun, and I’m personally hoping this next flick will deliver.
Now, Mr. Band, will you please make a Puppet Master movie that picks up after Part II? Don’t make me beg!
