Charles Band’s incredibly long-running series Puppet Master is gearing up for its eleventh installment by asking fans for some help. According to their IndieGoGo page, the film is fully funded…but that doesn’t mean they still couldn’t use a bit more money. Mr. Band himself is looking for an extra $50,000 to add more puppets, more blood, and most importantly, more practical effects!
Full Moon Features, Band’s brainchild, states on the Puppet Master IndieGoGo Page:
This film is fully financed and will go into production in early 2016, but YOU can make it even better!
More Practical Effects!
More Puppet Kills!
Stop Motion Animation!
And wild surprises!
I have to give Charles Band credit for trying to emphasize the fact that he has enough money to fund the film but would rather go to the fans and have them fund it even further to put out the best project possible. He’s a man that’s always done very well with his practical effects, no matter how ridiculous the movie may be. And they’re often quite ridiculous.
Now, some of you may be asking…does anybody really need 11 Puppet Master films? Uh, duh. We totally do! It’s the only way that the franchise can keep its ridiculous reputation. What is more ridiculous than one film about tiny little puppets coming to life and killing everyone in sight? Try eleven films of the same thing! Throw in some nazis! Throw in some new puppets! Make 60 Puppet Master films! I want to see Full Moon make this one of the most insane franchises ever created…and with our help, they can.
