Aside from Paul Le Mat being a throughly punchable looking lead, there’s not a lot to hate here. The puppets are great (Leech Lady is just grotesque) and the psychic angle is still fresh and unique. It just doesn’t really pop. One wishes another Empire/Full Moon favorite like Stuart Gordon had lent his magic touch to it.
So the idea of having well designed, small, killer puppets is a pretty good one. But after I got over the excitement that I was watching a movie about killer puppets I found everything else about this movie very unentertaining. The deaths, plot, direction, imagery, are all very uncreative and without energy and ultimately without fun.
