In 1941, a doctor named Hess is attempting to produce a serum that will re-animate dead soldiers to march on the frontline and give cover for the live ones in battle. He hears about a puppeteer named Toulon who uses stringless puppets in his performances. Upon investigating, Hess discovers Toulon has generated a potion that brings inanimate objects to life. Toulon's wife is killed by the Nazis and the puppeteer uses his wooden creations to exact revenge on those responsible for her death.
You can see the care and love executive producer / creator Charles Band put into transferring this film for Blu-ray. He makes sure the B-movie tone isn't lost while cleaning up the picture and correcting coloring issues. It's safe to say you've never viewed "Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge" the way you will in its high-definition version.
The 5.1 surround mix is a definite improvement over the movie's original VHS and standard DVD editions. The musical score, dialogue, and sound effects burst out at the audience from all over a home theater setting. It really helps bring the movie to life and creates a new experience for those who grew up seeing the movie.
As usual for Full Moon Blu-rays, "Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge" is loaded with entertaining extras.Read more ›
Set in 1941 Berlin, part III graces viewers with Toulon's history which was referenced in Puppet Master and Puppet Master II. Nazi Major Krauss has charged Dr. Hess with animating dead soldiers to utilize in the Furor's war. They discover that puppeteer Andre Toulon has mastered such secrets and intend to steal it!
In this third installment of the franchise, Andre Toulon is played by a third actor (Guy Rolfe; Puppet Master IV, V and Retro Puppet Master; Dolls, The Bride). But have no fear. This prequel has returned to its fans the more kind-hearted Toulon without the intolerable accent of Puppet Master II's zombie Toulon. When Toulon's wife Elsa (scream queen Sarah Douglas) is killed during a Nazi altercation, Toulon and his puppets are left with a hole in their hearts that can only be filled with bleeding, screaming Nazi death.
This is the best-acted of the franchise s far, but still much is left to be desired if you came expecting Oscar-worthy line delivery. It's certainly good enough. Making up for this shortcoming are the glorious stop-motion puppets.
The puppets include Pinhead and is man hands (as in a stop-motion puppet with live-action human hands), the drill-headed Tunneler, Jester and cowboy Six-Shooter (new as of this movie).Read more ›
