Puppet Master: Doktor Death (2022)

Doktor Death comes from Retro Puppet Master and is the second Puppet Master spin-off after Blade the Iron Cross. It’s strange that for some reason, this got to Tubi before I heard anything about it. Even weirder is that it’s only an hour but a taunt and tense slasher with good direction by Dave Parker (The Dead Hate the Living!The Hills Run Red).

This story takes place in the Shady Oaks Senior Living retirement home where a new nurse named April (Jenny Boswell) has shown up at the same time as a resident dies. As the staff look through his things, they find a footlocker with Doktor Death inside it and before you can say Andre Toulon, that little guy is out and out killing everything in his path. Also, if you’re a fan of AEW, The Bunny and The Blade are also in the cast briefly.

Parker is trying to make something great in a few days and this has the gore to back that up, as well as a surprise ending that makes me hope that this isn’t the end of this story. It’s shot in Charles Bands’ Ohio house but it doesn’t really need much to look like a nursing home. I was excited to see Melissa Moore show up as a psychic painter and man, how about that image of Doktor Death inside a body, using tendons to make someone walk around?

More hour long better quality Pupper Master movies! This was a blast.

You can watch this on Tubi.
