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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
