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?

Torch is cooking up some redneck woman, Cajun style. This is Darwin at work; she already has the shotgun trained on him, but watches as he slowly brings the flamethrower to bear.

Wanda.  Wow.

I am going to buy this movie for that scene alone.

OK, in the bit where Wanda walks in to see Lance getting killed by Blade, she backs into a table, a lamp falls off it and I swear to god an arm reaches out from nowhere and holds it upright. When we saw that, we nearly died laughing, and rewound the DVD (it doesn't make it a more enjoyable viewing experience than VHS, I promise) to watch it again and again. A classic piece of editing. I'm in mourning for Leech Woman - the most useless puppet ever!

In Germany, this film is not suitable under the age of 18, and cut in 3 scenes. But the full uncut version of: "I spit on your grave", you can buy in nearly every videoshop.Very strange or not????

This one wasn't as good as 1 but it was good still it sucked when Tunneler got broken and Ms. Leech got burned. I liked when Torch killed that kid.

PM2 sucks overall because Toulon was so off from what he has been made to be in future PMs and the original. Jester is a great puppet, but in this film, he is horribly portrayed. Ms. Leech's death helped the film none, she was always one of top favorites, and so was Tunneler. Not even Blade and Torch could bring this film from the dead zone.

I've seen Puppet Master 1 through 4, and I have to say, this is the worst! The plot is dull, most of the good parts were taken from the original! None of the characters were interesting, nor was there acting any better. Torch is the only thing keeping this flick from hitting rock bottom!

I like these types of film because you couldn't possibly imagine demented homicidal dolls trying to kill you!This one is alright,but i still can't get over the leech girl doll being destroyed so easily like that.Any other doll could of been destroyed,besides she wasn't the only doll in the room.I mean the other one's could of helped her?I mean she's my favorite of them all.The way she kills her victoms are so unique,LEECHES...........! It's very disappointing,though she did kill that redneck and take his brains.You can't say that she's not helpful to her master.I guess it's still alright?

I dont know what these guys are thinking, I personally think that all of the Puppet Master movies were awesome. There is nothing wrong with demonic puppets that go around and kill people, and Torch is definately my favorite.

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.
