SLASHER MONTH: Puppet Master: The Legacy (2003)

Directed by Charles Band and written by C. Courtney Joyner and David Schmoeller, the eighth Puppet Master movie takes us back to the Bodega Bay Inn where rogue agent Maclain (Kate Orsini) is reading the diary of André Toulon. I should write she was, as it soons goes up in flames.

In the basement, she finds Eric Weiss (Jacob Witkin) talking to Blade, Pinhead, Jester, Tunneler and Six-Shooter. She threatens him but he refuses to share the secrets of Toulon, but does play a recording from him.

Through flashbacks — and by that I mean footage from the older movies — we learn that Weiss is really Peter Hertz, the boy who Toulon saved from the Nazis in Puppet Master III. Then, the war between the puppets and the totems of Sutek in Puppet Master 4 and 5, as well as the events of Puppet Master 2 are remembered.

This is the final appearance of the original puppets created by David Allen and Dennis Gordon. They were sold at an auction one year after this movie.

Full Moon, I have to tell you, there are so many of your movies I’ve started and realized that I’ve seen before but you’ve repackaged them. There are only thirty minutes of new footage in this one. It’s like a Puppet Master supercut. The greatest hits, sold by K-Tel?
