We’re big fans of Fangoria and RLJE Films’ Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, the terrifying new vision of Charles Band’s horror classic! We reviewed it recently, and we really enjoyed it. You will, too! S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk 2015 – read our review here, Brawl in Cell Block 99 2017 – read our review here) wrote the screenplay. Animalistic’s (read our review here) Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund co-directed the film.
We’ve got some great news for UK horror fans: the film is coming soon to a theater near you!
Check out the red band trailer below, and then read on for all the details!
Official Synopsis for Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich
Edgar, recently divorced, returns to his childhood home to where he finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room. He decides to sell the doll for some quick cash at a small-town convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention. This sets them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.
The film stars Thomas Lennon (Reno 911! TV series), Jenny Pellicer (Cocaine Grandmother 2017), Nelson Franklin (The Office TV series), Charlyne Yi (This Is 40 2012), Michael Pare (Eddie and the Cruisers: Eddie Lives! 1989), Re-Animator’s Barbara Crampton (read our interview with here here), and Udo Kier (Blade 1998). Award winning SFX artist Tate Steinsiek (The Amazing Spider-Man 2012) serves as principle creature and Puppet Designer.
