Puppet Master 5 (1994) on Blu-ray

I watched it w/ director Jeff Burr's commentary where he basically talked about what it was like working with actors he idolized when he was younger on making this movie.



Ian Ogilvy:

Burr said he knew Ian from "Return of the Saint" and said that he's a very versatile actor w/ experience on stage, film, and TV and that it's a shame he's not that well known.



Diane McBain:

Burr said he admired her '60s work on "Surfside 6" and it was great to cast her in a small part. He said that she joked that she had "better catering on sets in the '60s" while on Full Moon's set here.



Ron O'Neal:

Burr said he liked him from Superfly and said that Ron was really upset that he was never quite accepted as a blaxploitation star.

Burr said he also loved his small part in Red Dawn.



Clu Gulager:

He casted Clu in a very small cameo and was happy to have "one of the legendary Gulager's" in his movie.



Duane Whitaker:

Burr said he likes character actor Duane from Pulp Fiction and that he had casted him in Leatherface: TCM III. Said it's a shame that character actors like him aren't really recognized for their talent.

Jennifer Help Us '14 (A vengeful high school senior, whose violent kidnapping of a fellow student, collides with her town's haunted house and its brutal past.

Really enjoyed this one. Very unique. They did a really good job of making it look like it was shot in the 80's. An almost surreal creepy vibe about it. The film's score had a great 80's sound.

The writer/director has a new film coming out starring Jeremy Gardner from The Battery and Tex Montana Will Survive, and Michael St. Michaels who was fantastic in The Greasy Strangler.)

Curse of the Puppet Master (1998) on Blu-ray

I watched it w/ director David DeCoteau's audio commentary. He really didn't explain much about making the actual movie.

He went into how the changing home media (VHS to DVD) in the late 1990s were affecting Full Moon. He said he was inspired by Ssssss and Tourist Trap in making this movie.

He was going to explain why young actor Michael Guerin is no longer in the business but said it was "very tragic" and he didn't want the commentary to be a "Debbie Downer" and wouldn't say more. I hate being teased like that and tried looking for more info. online but couldn't find anything.

Retro Puppet Master (1999) on Blu-ray

I watched it w/ the audio commentary featuring director David DeCoteau and actor Greg Sestero (now known for the cult film The Room).

Sestero talked about what his first starring role in a feature film was like and David DeCoteau joked saying he looked like Sharon Stone from Basic Instinct and Loni Anderson.

Sestero recalled a stalking incident on the Retro PM set where a midget woman working in the camera dept. found her way into his dressing room and laid on his bed waiting for him to get back. He said that most of the Romanian crew spoke no English and that he was very friendly and talked w/ everyone on the set. This woman must have gotten the wrong message and would follow Sestero around all day and waited for him in his dressing room. He said that she sounded like the Chucky doll and wasn't turned on at all.





Of course The Room was mentioned and Sestero said that he was living w/ Tommy Wiseau at the time of filming and he stayed back while Sestero went to Romania to shoot. DeCoteau recalled Sestero talking to his "weird French roommate" all the time and Sestero mentioned that his role in Retro got him the part in The Room.

Tommy Wiseau loved Sestero's part in Retro PM and said it was "like Hamlet" and casted him for the movie. Sestero recalled the transition from Retro to The Room as "very surreal" and said that he talked more about it in his book The Disaster Artist.

Puppet Master: Axis Termination (2017) on Blu-ray

This is the 11th and most recent Puppet Master movie featuring a midget theology professor leading a group of psychics against a Nazi psychic team during WWII.

It was good for what it was, definitely better than PM X which was just bad. Fans paid to have roles in the movie and appeared as Nazi soldiers (which explains why some Nazi soldiers in WWII had studded earrings ).

Full Moon regulars Robin Sydney and director David DeCoteau have cameos.

Love this movie. The Soska sisters are directing a remake of Rabid, hopefully it's better than their last two films.
