Puppet Master 3 (1991)
Director: David DeCoteau
Main Stars: Guy Rolfe, Richard Lynch, Ian Abercrombie, Aron Eisenberg, Sarah Douglas
Storyline: Set in Berlin WWII we learn more of Toulon and his connection to the Nazi of Germany.
Review (Spoils): The movie plays on a history report on the creator of the puppets Toulon (Guy Rolfe). During WWII the Nazi created a formula to bring the dead back to life so they would have the ultimate army. This leads to maybe Toulon being a Nazi dissident who leads to an investigation and raid and the death of Toulon’s wife (Sarah Douglas). Toulon seeks revenge and uses the formula to bring the toys to life to bring them down.
This builds into the history of the puppets themselves and Toulon. It explains a bit more on the formula itself and brings the wrap around from the first film and the second one. The story has depth and also introduces the master’s wife and the puppet named six shooter (not one of my favorite puppets). The film is an important part of the series too because it gives the birth of each puppet that we have seen in the first two films.
Rating: This is a nice little prequel the series as it explains a whole lot of why the whole series even exists. The madness behind Toulon and the reason of the puppets to begin with, don’t expect awesome acting but do expect some drilling, some blood and a nice little war story of the puppet master himself.
