Editorial Reviews

A group of teens are challenged to spend a night in the Wagner mansion on the edge of town. Little do they know the owner (Dr. Wolfgang Wagner) has concocted a monstrosity in the basement and plans to make the hapless teens the creature's first big meal. This is The Puppet Monster Massacre, a wild and raucous love letter to the monster films of the glorious 1980's!

Customer Reviews

Any fan of 80's-style horror needs to buy this film and watch it.

It's all done with amazing handmade puppets and some great special effects.

The voices for the puppets (excluding one or two) were done very well.

...okay, maybe more than a few blocks. This one definitely isn't for today's kids, perhaps more so for kids of the MTV generation. A near-perfect homage to 80s monster horror, the Puppet Monster Massacre manages to take puppets where they've never gone before. And it works! Dustin Mills uses special effects, animation, and of course puppetry, to tell his story in a truly unique, interesting, and creative way--something most films of late are critically lacking. Perhaps most importantly, there's plenty of laughs amid the "horror," making this film more than just a simple tribute to those 80s flicks we've become so nostalgic for. Ultimately, Puppet Monster Massacre is a surefire way to ensure your next movie night is the most fun you've had with puppets (well, I hope that's the most fun you've had with puppets...but who knows what you do in your free time).

Puppet Monster Massacre is a great little movie that has a big feel. If you like goofy, scary and laugh out loud funny movies, then check out this PMM. It's all done with amazing handmade puppets and some great special effects.

Actually, Puppet Monster Massacre is a damn good film that acts as a love letter to 80s-style horror with an adults-only brand of humor that borders on Meet the Feebles territory tempered by a Mad Monster Party premise. Even without the elaborate sequences of Feebles, Mills and his team managed to create a pretty close approximation of a fully-realized world with subplots and supporting characters that really flesh out the characters. Speaking of which, the film finds a group of teens who have been invited to a creepy mansion by Dr. Wolfgang Wagner who is preparing to unleash the forces of hell upon our world via a demon of his own creation.

This House on Haunted Hill setup is only one of many Easter Eggs scattered throughout the film by Dustin, who also portrays The Hunter, The Sarge and (perhaps my favorite character of the entire movie) Raimi. As you might expect from looking at him Raimi is the hapless nerd of the film and a huge horror fan- he also happens to be one of the most entertaining characters of the whole cast. Other notable characters include the Aussie-accented Iggy and Gramps, though they are all pretty memorable. The only character I didn't like (ironically) is our "hero" Charlie who may or may not be a reference to Fright Night and acts as our point of view for the majority of the movie.

As you might expect, the teens are picked off one by one as Wolfgang's scheme reveals itself and, I must admit, Charlie does make up for all his whining in a big way towards the end which validates his weak-willed personality. The voice work is also noteworthy with Steve Rimpici hamming it up as the "mad" Dr. Wolfgang Wagner and Bart Flynn double timing it as both Iggy and Gramps.

An incredible puppet interpretation of a B-Horror Movie...and that is a recipe for awesome.

The humor is intelligent and the puppets are well made.
The sound quality is top notch and the voice acting is spot on.
This movie is a lot of fun and definitely deserves a watch - or two - or ten.

Seriously folks, there is no reason you should pass this film up... save the fact that it is definitely NOT child appropriate (but the best horror films aren't anyway). Then again, like myself, you could always have movie night over at a friend's house if you have little ones. Once past that fact, I heartily recommend this film as a purchase.

The film is an excellent blend of comedy and classic horror the likes of which keep us coming back to watch such films as "Wishmaster" & "Army of Darkness" (as just a couple examples) over and over again. Any fan of 80's-style horror needs to buy this film and watch it.

I'm already having trouble waiting for the inevitable sequel.

ThIS is a film for anyone that remembers "Meet The Feebles," filmmaker Dustin Mills has created a comedy/horror that is so wrong it's great. It's "Sesame Street gone bad" but in a highly entertaining way. The story takes place in 1985 and it's main character is a wimpy little kid named Charlie who lives with his foul-mouthed grandfather. Charlie has a dream of opening back up the family dime store, one day several other Teenagers in town and himself receive an invitation to spend the night at an old mansion owned by the infamous Doctor Wagner. They are promised to share one million dollars if they can stay the night but the mad Doctor has plans he's been waiting to put into motion for a long time, the mansion might be haunted by this group of Teenagers have something a bit more deathly to worry about. To go into any more details about the story would only ruin it for those wanting to see it so that is about as deep into the plot as I am going to go.

The film is very well made and has some hilarious and memorable moments as well as plenty of action, blood effects and lets not forget about the language, yes this is an adult puppet film so be sure to watch this one when the little ones are not around. The use of animation with the puppets works great together, the animated scene when the Doctor is explaining his past is very well done and memorable.

"Puppet Monster Massacre" is a unique independent gem full of great visuals a good story that isn't too complicated and plenty of adult humor. So if you're an indie fan or just looking for something different to watch I highly recommend picking this up, it was so much fun I went back and watched it a second time already. It's not a horror movie designed to scare people, it's instead a hilarious and highly entertaining film that brings back memories of those those great movies we saw in the 80's, a homage yes but it stands on it's own as a future cult classic.
