Plot / spoilers
Jolene Blaylock of Star Trek fame wakes in a padded room with no memory of her name or how she got there. Weird noises and scary sounds follow along with a power brown out. This causes her door to unlock so she heads out in her underclothes (I rather appreciate this even if it makes no sense) and finds Spike from Buffy fame in another cell, also sans memory. They find a nebbishy white guy and irritable Afro-American woman in similar circumstance but on the other side of a cell door. The two teams split up to explore. Team Star Trek/Buffy find an older man linked to a machine that they deduce wipes out memories -- but old guy is apparently brain dead. They are attacked by a berserk Afro-American man who, seeing that they put on lab coats over their underwear, figure they "did this to him". Monster appears and the A-team flees after the death of the angry man.
Team B finds a flirty women swimming naked in an olympic sized pool -- really, how do mad scientists fit a pool into their budget? Naked chick tells Team B they are all going to die.
Teams meet up and go to the lower level where Tony Todd is chained to a wall and Obligatory Blonde Victim is even more restrained in another room They release Tony and try to free Blondie, but monster shows up and takes care of her.
Hints of their pasts are found. Pasts are according to sterotypes. They eventually discover that one of them is lying and must actually have their memories and know more of what is going on. More monster, bloodshed, and betrayal. Two survivors eventually wander off in their underwear into the sunrise...
I also got the sense that Shadow Puppets borrows from other genres/sources throughout (I almost felt like I was watching a PG-13 version of Saw, or an episode of Lost). Yet overall, while I am not enthusiastic about the movie, I am not mourning the loss of an 1:42 minutes of viewing time either.
You win some, you lose some.
Serves me right for not getting outside on such a beautiful day.
YOU CAN'T MISS JAMES MARSTERS' IN HIS UNDERWEAR FOR MOST OF THE MOVIE!!!! Shadow Puppets is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I GIVE IT 5 STARS OUT OF 5. IT IS A MUST SEE MOVIE!!!Shadow Puppets is about a group of strangers who wake up in a locked asylum with no idea of who who they are or how they got there.They are all in their underwear,cold and scared.They are being killed of by a Shadow creature, and need to find a way out of the asylum. As the movie goes on, you will will see that not all is what it seems, that someone has been lying. But I won't say who? You will have to watch the movie to find out!!!
