The Plot: 

Excellent sequel to the original Puppet Master and a all around bad movie! More stop motion, more people getting iced, and a naked brunette. Toulon is raised from the dead by his puppets after years of burial, through most of the movie he dresses like the invisible man. Around the same time paranormal investigators arrive, they hope to discover what drove Alex Whittaker mad while staying in the hotel. Toulon falls in love with Carolyn, believing her to be the reincarnated form of his wife. She wants nothing to do with the ace bandage spokesperson and instead latches on to Michael (latches is pretty accurate) for some gratuitous hot lovin. Meanwhile, the puppets are gathering sections of human brain to revitalize the alchemy that keeps them and their master alive. So people must die! They must die with their brains hacked out! A very fun movie with plenty of stop motion and cool shots of the puppets.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Wear gloves when working with barbed wire.
  • When attacked by demonic puppets scream BEFORE they gag you.
  • Never put the horny people in charge of security.
  • Pen knives hack through a skull with no problem.
  • Puppet shows were boring long before TV came along.
  • Bratty kids should be charbroiled.
  • Nothing ruins a romantic mood like leper-man.
  • "I feel so alone." means "Do me now." in Redhead-speak.
  • People set on fire always fall out windows.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 6 mins - Charles Band: music composer, storywriter, producer...
  • 28 mins - No blood on the drill after opening Patrick's head up huh?
  • 29 mins - Tunneler lost his hand but now it's back on.
  • 53 mins - Undressing then whipping an action figure? This kid has a few issues.
  • 62 mins - Toulon can barely walk but dancing is no problem huh?
  • 67 mins - Wanda, turn over so we can see your...
  • 70 mins - Yep, it's midnight, look how bright it is.
  • 73 mins - Please make that man put some pants on.
  • Ending Credits - Special thanks to Kado the Cat?

I've seen 1-5 the 2nd one was stupid and they never
should've made Curse Of The Puppet Master,that was worse
then the 2nd one.The only reason I liked the Curse was
because Leech Woman was back with the rest of the puppets,
I cried when leech Woman got burnt to ash in the 2nd one.
My favorite puppets are of course Leech Woman and Blade,
Jester is a third favorite.

I own every Puppet Master film except 5 and Retro Puppet Master. I thought Curse of the Puppet Master was ok/bad and I thought Retro Puppet Master sucked. My favorite is probably Puppet Master 3 because it tells the story of Toulon and the Puppets during World War 2 in Germany. Also because it's the first Puppet Master film the legendary Guy Rolfe played as Andre Toulon. My favorite puppet is probably either Blade or Jester.

Hands-down the best in the "Puppet Master" series.  Great setting, wonderfully old-fashioned villain, and strong cast all around.  The puppets are given lots of grisly work to do (love when the little brat gets immolated and when Blade jumps off the bed to attack Wanda) and their deaths are surprisingly upsetting.  Plus, the immortal Charlie Spradling.

This movie is OK in some ways and great in others.  I did not like Toulon as an evil guy, especially as some re-animated corpse.  And I especially did not like him betraying his puppets, I'm glad Blade and the others made short work of him in the end, he deserved it.
Best scenes had to be anything with Blade.  Two that come to mind are him in the redneck woman's house, and that awesome scene with him "finishing the job" after Torch incinerates her.  The other being the best scene in the whole movie, when he jumps off the bed and attacks Wanda.  That stop-motion stuff rocks...they needed to use more of it. Torch was very cool but wow, don't have kids around that puppet or he'll turn them into fried Mcnuggets. o.o
Did anyone ever find out just who Torch is?  (That being the idea he's the soul of a former friend of Toulon?)  Some said he was made from animals...but Toulon was telling the puppets how "interesting" they would be if the fluid was made from apparently Torch couldn't be from animals, unless he was a mix or something. ::Shrugs:: Who knows, they never do explain these things.

Now, at first I thought this was a super creepy doll movie like Child's Play. But it seems more like a cool movie! I saw the scene with Torch and I was so amazed! I'm gonna go ahead and check it out.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
