“The gothic atmosphere of the Universal monster variety . . . in this FRIDAY THE 13TH-esque Puppet jam that features probably the best kills in the entire franchise.” - Ian West, LETTERBOXD
Revered special effects maestro David Allen (WILLOW; GHOSTBUSTERS II) takes the reins for the second installment of the franchise, as the vengeful — and now undead — mad scientist Andre Toulon sends his pernicious playthings to extract the brain fluid from paranormal researchers. Why the hell would he want to do that? The answer is even more bizarre than the question, and the unhinged plot is carried out by the puckish puppets from the first film, now joined by their new iron-skinned, flame-blasting comrade, Torch! With the violence and mayhem cranked up to a roar, the initial sequel to PUPPET MASTER rages to the miniature maximum in half-pint horror.
