Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The PUPPET MASTER Horror film series focuses on a group of anthropomorphic puppets animated by an Egyptian spell, each equipped with its own unique and dangerous device and are represented as heroes, anti-heroes, and antagonists. The series was established in 1989 with the first installment, which has since been followed by nine sequels, including an unofficial crossover with the characters of DEMONIC TOYS.
With the latest sequel, PUPPET MASTER: AXIS TERMINATION now getting the finishing touches from Charles Band, progress is moving forward with the PUPPET MASTER reboot titled PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLIEST REICH, which will be directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, the team behind the Swedish Horror films WITHER and WE ARE MONSTERS.
We can now report that PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH is set to begin filming in Dallas Texas on March 27th. Production is scheduled to last until April 15th.
S. Craig Zahler, director of the Horror Western film BONE TOMAHAWK is in charge of writing the script for reboot. The project will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian of di Bonanventura Pictures and Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller of Caliber Media. Charles Band, who is the founder of Full Moon will be executive producing the reboot. The plan is to create a new PUPPET MASTER franchise.
The reboot is said to be a fresh take on the concept which will still provide "brutally inventive puppet kills" and "comedic tendencies" that the Full Moon franchise has previously brought to us.

All hell breaks loose at the Postville Lodge during the auction when a strange force animates all of the various puppets throughout the convention as they go on a bloody killing spree."
