Inert first act, but decent start to the ongoing puppet-slasher series RELEASED TO VIDEO IN 1989 and directed by David Schmoeller, "Puppet Master" (or “Puppetmaster”) takes place at a striking old hotel on the California coast where four psychics gather to meet a former colleague and his wife, the heir of the grand inn. However, their colleague has committed suicide and puppets animated by Egyptian sorcery are intent on killing them off one-by-one. This was the first of a franchise that includes a dozen sequels (as of this writing), which is one more than the Friday the 13th franchise. While decidedly Grade B in quality, I liked the grand ol’ hotel setting, the cast, and the Ten Little Indians-like plot. Unfortunately, the first half hour feels lethargic and dull. From there, the film’s decent enough with quality puppet effects. Irene Miracle is stunning as a psychic biyatch and Kathryn O'Reilly & Robin Frates ain’t no slouches on the feminine front, but the filmmakers fumble the ball as far as taking advantage of these resources. Paul Le Mat is genial as the main male protagonist with frightful hair while Jimmie F. Skaggs is formidable as the colleague gone mad. THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour, 30 minutes and was shot in California (Riverside, Pasadena, etc.). WRITERS: Charles Band, Kenneth J. Hall, Schmoeller and J.S. Cardone. GRADE: C+

_Puppet Master_ is the first of the Puppet Master series of movies. It's not the best, so if this is the first Puppet Master movie you see I'd continue on with the series as the sequels are actually much better than the original. In this movie, we are introduced to the Puppet Master himself, Toulon. We don't learn much about Toulon in this movie other than he created some living puppets and killed himself rather than being captured. The bulk of the movie takes place years later when a group of new-age super friends (a psychic, a witch, a magician, etc.) go to a hotel where their other occult friend has recently died. It turns out he was after the secrets of Toulon and _something happened_. Puppet carnage ensues. The Puppet Master movies get much better after this. The latest as of this writing is "Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich," which is done by a different studio and stars Thomas Lennon. All of the original Puppet Master movies are on a video streaming service by Full Moon Features, which produced them.
