I watched this after a date last night and it reminded me so much of Puppet Master and also very similar plot to Child’s Play. It was v. cheesy but still kind of fun.

I really like Demonic Toys! I actually sorta hate Puppet Master (love the setting though!), but Full Moon features <33. So many awful classics like The Gingerdead Man, Shadowzone, Voodoo Academy (sex), The Killer Eye, and Doll Graveyard. Castle Freak is legitimately fantastic though. Shadow Films, a company that was basically Full Moon under a different name, only produced a few films (Bleed, Birth Rite, Delta Delta Die, and Cut Throat), but they're all guilty pleasures of mine too. Dan, have you seen Birth Rite? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0337877/ Watch it if you haven't. I want to know what you think of it Laughing. I have most of director Devin Hamilton's movies. I don't even know why lol. I know you saw Delta Delta Die!

I didn't care much for Puppet Master, either. The first movie left me a bit cold. I liked the second and the third ones. The fourth and fifth were excruciating to get through. I didn't hate Curse of Puppet Master (#6), though I don't go around talking it up either. Retro Puppet Master and Puppet Master: The Legacy were definitely the all-time low points for the franchise. The last one on the cheapie set I watched *looked* pretty nice and was a step up from the two garbage sequels before it, but it still wasn't very entertaining but rather just something to put on to numb your mind to. I still haven't seen the latest chapter (wasn't included on the set), but I don't care enough to dig it up somewhere. Overall, I just didn't enjoy this franchise as much as I would've liked to. I wasn't really a big fan of the Subspecies franchise, either.

My indifference to them is why I haven't watched any of those other Full Moon "toy" franchises and those crossover movies, despite finding a triple-set of Demonic Toys/Dollman/Dollman vs. Demonic Toys for a dollar at a discount store a few years ago. Maybe the Harem endorsement will be enough to get me to finally watch at least Demonic Toys.  Razz  

Guy Rolfe's pre-Puppet Master movie Dolls from 1987 was pretty neat, though. It's Oscar material, when compared to Puppet Master at least.

Don't get me wrong, though... I don't hate all Full Moon movies. I picked up a blu-ray copy of Lurking Fear, which I actually really liked when I saw it a few years back. Netherworld and Meridian were both pretty good as well. I want to see Creepozoids and Hideous! I'll add your recommendation to that list as well, Bobby.

Awe cute you went on a date. Smile

I never saw Demonic Toys. Sad I always felt sketch about renting it. I would pick up the box and everything like I was going to but would always talk myself out of it. Secretly because of the Full Moon logo and their movies being mostly shitty. Laughing Shadowzone was a goddess though. Will I like it, Dan?

I only liked the second and third Puppet Master's too. The first one was definitely very vapid and empty. What a backwards franchise. 4 has Miles from Jason Takes Manhattan but it was pretty boring. I remember liking 5 more than 4 but I don't remember 5 at all these days.

Dolls though <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 I love it more every time I see it. It's pretty mean-spirited for a doll movie. That creepy ass bear at the beginning too. And I can't get enough of the step-mom, Rosemary.

Little girl: You're NOT my mother
Rosemary: Thank GOD!

And the Madonna look-alike. Bunty Bailey <3

Ugh, Ralph though

Everything in here connects back to Jason Takes Manhattan (what an iconic movie) because my VHS had a trailer for Shadowzone. Tyler, did yours? Or did you have a different version?

I only like Puppet Master 2 and 3, too. 3 especially. By far David Decoteau's best film, even if it isn't his most entertaining (that would go to something like Leeches or Ring of Darkness with Ryan Starr <3). David Decoteau's million drag/cabaret names Laughing. What's up with that? Is he embarrassed by his 142 movies? So much made and still nothing worth watching Laughing <3. Victoria Sloane and Ellen Cabot <3.

Which movie are you talking about, Tyler? cereal

Full Moon is an interesting company; most times, I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy their brand of films, with a few exceptions. Tourist Trap and Intruder both sport the Full Moon logo, at least the DVD versions did. However, I don't think Full Moon produced either of these movies but rather just distributed them? I think?? I'm not entirely sure how that all works, but I do know that both are pretty good flicks in their respective subgenres. They're much better than what the stigma of having a "Full Moon" logo on the DVD case would suggest regarding the quality of the films.

I did a little bit of loose research and the guy who founded Full Moon in the late 80s actually had a different company that produced Dolls. I see that Re-Animator and Ghost Town are on that list as well, so the pre-Full Moon stuff did have a degree of quality to them and aspired to be something bigger than "goofy horror" which seems to be a lot of their post-1990 stuff. However, stuff like Breeders and Crawlspace also linger on the list and I wasn't big on either of those so it's hard to say because the bag is so mixed with gems and rocks.
