5 parapsychologists (Elizabeth Maclellan, Gregory Webb, Charlie Spradling, Jeff Weston, Nita Talbot) are re-visiting the hotel from Puppet Master, and before you know it, the puppets soon enough are at it again and slaughter them one by one. And this time around, the puppets have unearthed their master, Toulon (Steve Welles), who totally bandaged up plays host to the parapsychologists (of course without giving away his true identity), while he has his puppets collect him bodyparts fo cook himself up a serum that promises immortality in a new puppet body.

Soon, our parapsychologists are down to one, Carol (Elizabeth Maclellan), who together with Michael (Collin Bernsen), the son of one of her deceased colleagues, tries to get to the bottom of it all ... while Toulon thinks she is the reincarnation of his bride from 50 years ago and wants to turn her into a puppet as well, to spend eternity at his side - which is something she is not too keen on.

With combined forces, Carol and Michael try to fight off Toulon, the Puppet Master, but with little success - but then Toulon makes the fatal mistake to let it slip that he is going to abandon his puppets (who need the immortality serum just as badly for immortality as he does), and suddenly the puppets turn against him and tear him up ...


If you have seen the first Puppet Master, you will no doubt notice that this film is just more of the same - which isn't quite as bad as it sounds, since Puppet Master was one of Full Moon's best films. Unfortunately though, Puppet Master 2 lacks the fine, flowing camerawork of Sergio Salvati, instead featuring all too conventional photography, and it lacks some of the polish of the first film, on the other hand though, it does feature a few nice new ideas, like the flame-throwing puppet and Toulon all bandaged up like the Invisible Man. In all though, Puppet Master 2 is neither a great movie nor is it as good as the first part, but it's solid, a tad silly (but enjoyably silly) horror entertainment you might find very likeable.
