4.0 out of 5 stars Classic horror..., March 24, 2009
This review is from: Puppet Master 1 (DVD)
This tense Full Moon Features thriller stars Paul LeMat and Golden Globe winner Irene Miracle as two of a group of psychics who are summoned to a California hotel, not knowing it is for their executions at the hands of five murderous... puppets?

It may sound like a ripoff of Child's Play, but this movie has a far more ambiguous plot. The dolls don't really come front and center until the final third of the movie, and Irene Miracle is very good at playing the bitchy Dana Hadley. This DVD is in fullscreen, as the movie was released directly to video, although it was produced as a theatrical feature, so a widescreen print is out there somewhere. :) This DVD was made from a good print of the film and has the trailer, a making of featurette and bios for stars LeMat, Miracle, and William Hickey, as well as filmographies for the rest of the cast and crew.

There are several editions available of Puppet Master, but this is by far the best DVD you can find for it. The current "official" release is a Spanish-subtitled edition (in English with optional Spanish subtitles, and Spanish packaging) with decent quality, but not as good as this, and includes virtually the same extras. And there is also a 3D Uncut version available, but the quality is slightly below VHS quality and has no extras. The best value is in the Puppet Master series boxed set from and includes THIS edition of Puppet Master 1.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice... Puppet Master in uncut form. :), March 24, 2009
This review is from: Puppetmaster [2D & 3D] (DVD)
Okay, now the 3D isn't very good, but the 2D version is in fact two minutes LONGER than the original version from Full Moon, despite listing the runtime as 75 minutes. The transfer isn't as good as the Full Moon version, so this is really just good as a companion piece to the original version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, So-so Transfer, March 14, 2009
This review is from: The Puppet Master (DVD)
Puppet Master(1989)
Stars: Paul LeMat, Irene Miracle.
Movie: 9/10 Video: 7/10 Audio: 6/10 Extras 5/10

First of all, I had already bought the out-of-print American edition on Amazon when a friend ordered me this copy for my birthday, not knowing I'd already bought a better one, on account of my 2-or-3-year-long search for it. So I accepted, graciously.

Anyway, the video isn't bad, but the color is a little faded compared to the American DVD. And the sound isn't bad, except in a couple spots where the sound effects are louder than the dialogue. This is a different soundmix than the American DVD. My only major complaint is that the print transferred was played a little too quickly, meaning the 88-minute-print runs in 85 minutes. If you can't find this movie anywhere else, then buy this DVD, it's worth it, but if you can get a better copy at a good price, go for that one.
