In 1989, the American horror film “Puppet Master” entangled audiences with it’s marionette driven madness. The uber fromage flick revolves around four psychics who are being plotted against by a spurned former colleague, using malicious puppets made animate by an ancient Egyptian spell. This straight to VHS release (yes, I said VHS) is the epitome of cult classic, as the rabid fan following from the videos spawned off nine other “Puppet Master” films. The puppets are twisted (one is named Blade and has a blade and hook for hands), The script is ridiculous (note the above-mentioned quote), the eye glasses are extremely thick-framed, the sex-appeal is still so very ‘80s and the movie is all the better for it. Although not the most widely appreciated, this film easily lands the top five movies with muppets or puppets with it’s impressive fan-driven franchise.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
