Toulon blood is what the bad guys are after in this one, disregarding the implied complexity of the substance that gives life to inanimate objects the whole Puppet Master franchise has relied on. The first act barely makes reference to the Demonic Toys franchise. The movie’s flavor is closer to the more defined Puppet Master collection than it is to its underdog cousin.
The effects have seen better days in both franchises. The sped up frames used to cover weak puppetry will undoubtedly get on your nerves. It’s really the acting that saves us from a total mess. It’s far from good but it’s awkwardly entertaining. The puppets, dolls and other animated toys look terrible, disproportionate, but have been rigged with more effort than the last releases.
This movie unites two of Full Moon Entertainment’s most popular collections. It is a lighthearted Christmas horror film, courtesy of The Sci-Fi Channel. As was the case with later entries, it’s not very gory and plays out like a dark, immature cartoon. The comedy doesn't really work, despite Corey Feldman's attempt at giving the makers more than they asked. He couldn't save this one, I'm afraid...
