Format: DVD
dvd- this movie didnt improve much over the vhs version. on the movie back, it said 'widesrceen' and the movie didnt have that option and the picture was a little vhs-like in like 2 spots.
movie- this as a movie is a great and fun film. it was funny to see small puppets come to life and kill people. its about a guy who uses voodoo to give his own hand-made puppets life and kill. i really dont know what to say about this movie but get it it is a great horror flick. if you already have the vhs version dont bother wit the dvd but if you dont have it at all get the dvd i guess.

Format: DVD
The names Puppet Master and Charles Band are virtually synonymous. This, the flagship film of Full Moon Productions (or whatever Full Moon name it’s going by now), has become a cult favorite and pretty much a must-see film for anyone calling himself/herself a true horror fan. Since its release in 1989, it has inspired nothing less than nine sequels (and counting). Charles Band has made some pretty lousy movies over the years, but Puppet Master quickly dispels any lowered expectations of being nothing more than a cheap and cheesy little horror film. The puppet special effects are quite natural, the acting is surprisingly good, and I think the film retains a healthy sense of uncertainty about the nature of the deadly puppets on display here.

It all starts in 1939, with Andre Toulon and his puppets holed up in a room in a Bodega Bay, California hotel. Having discovered the secret of eternal life in some Egyptian artifact, Toulon has used that knowledge to animate a small group of handmade puppets. These include a Jester whose head consists of three different parts that can spin around to produce the most dramatic of facial expressions; Blade, whose blade and hook appendages make him ideal for dangerous spy missions; Pinhead, a bulky he-puppet with a diminutive head; Tunneler, with a drill-like head; and Leech Woman, who specializes in vomiting up killer leeches. Just before a pair of Nazis arrive to snatch him and his secret knowledge, Toulon manages to hide the puppets inside a wall and then makes sure that his enemies will get nothing out of him when they arrive.

I can't believe it! I finally found Puppet Master! I got it on DVD but, Amazon didn't give me the choice of reviewing a DVD version. I guess they didn't know that there was a DVD version out there but, now you know! It is very hard to find but, once you have found it you will be satisfied! For this DVD includes VIDEOZONE Magazine with interviews, and a behind the scenes look at the making of Puppet Master! It has merchandise, tells you their web site and address just in case you want to mail them! You also get a Trailer! This movie has great acting, great puppets, a great plot, and a great DVD to go along with it!
This is how the back of the DVD describes the Puppet Master!
Alex Whittaker, played by Paul Le Mat (Melvin & Howard, The Burning Bed), and three other gifted psychics are investigating rumors that the secret of life has been discovered by master puppeteer Andre Toulon, played by William Hickey (Prizzi's Honor, The Name Of The Game). But the psychics quickly discover Toulon's secret of death in the form of five killer puppets-each one uniquely qualified for murder and mayhem. Tunneler has a nasty habit of boring holes in people with his drill bit head. Ms.Leech regurgitates killer leeches that suck her victims dry. Pinhead strangles his enemies with his powerful vice-like hands. Blade has a gleaming hook for one hand and a razor-sharp knife for the other. And Jester, the ruthless brains of the bunch, is absolutely merciless. Together, they're an army of skilled assassins, diabolically programmed to guard the deadly secrets of the Puppet Master. Special effects wizard, David Allen (Willow, Batteries Not Included), brings Toulon's killer puppets magically to life with the incredible flair that earned him an an Academy Award Nomination for his work on Ypung Sherlock Holmes.

I initially looked at this film expecting to see a horrible movie, but was pleasantly surprised to see one of the best horror movies ever! The special effects were pretty good for a horror movie of that time period, and the acting was decent. I recommend this for anyone who liked movies like Night of the Demons or Subspecies.
