PUPPET MASTER 8: THE LEGACY
2003 film review by Wmpyr
Unless for some reason you want to get a summary of all the previous Puppet Master film, or your a hardcore fan/completionist, I don't recommend this film. Even for me, someone who is a fan of the franchise and fan of Full Moon pictures I feel like I need to be in a very specific mood to enjoy this one. Why is this one so difficult to watch? Basically it's just a woman with a gun interrogating an old man for a few scenes and all the rest of the film is just one flash back after another from the previous films, and they are trying hard to connect them together. If your not in the right mood your just going to feel cheated. If your interested in the Puppet Master films but you just don't have the time to watch all the films and reading reviews and watching trailers is just not good enough, then maybe this will workout for you. If you want to have a halloween party and reminisce with another fan then maybe this might work. Let's say you've seen all the Puppet Master films many-many times, and you like them all, and your going on a trip and you could only have one dvd then this might be the one for you. This is definitely a strange one in the series but when you have 9 films, I suppose one is going to be like this. I was able to get through it because I saw this film as one giant highlight film for the previous installments.
