The Puppet Monster Massacre


Major props to Mike over at Badasses, Boobs and Body Counts for doing a review of this gem and turning me on to it.  (And if you click that link, it’ll take you to his review!)  I am in love.  There are a lot of things I love in this world: rainbows, kittens, blowing bubbles, unicorns, NYC, books…I love it all really.  But this movie??  This movie was obviously made with me specifically in mind because it had all my favoritest movie things in one giant spectacular extravaganza.

Puppets?  Check.

Cute little furry animals?  Check.

Mad scientist with a penguin sidekick?  Check.

Puppet sex?  Check.

Nazis?  Check.

Douchebag guy with a fake English accent?  Check.

A girl not afraid to tell her boyfriend/non-boyfriend that he’s a pussy?  Check.

Blood and guts?  Check.

Foul mouthed grandpa?  Check.

This adorable little fella?  Check.

This adorable little fella? Check.

I really don’t even know where to start with this.  Do you need a plot summary with a title like that?  I sure as hell didn’t.  But if you are interested, Charlie is the pussy that lives with his foul mouthed Gramps and is in love with Gwen.  They both get mysterious letters inviting them to come spend the night at some house on a hill where if they survive the night they’ll get a million dollars (sound familiar?).  So who exactly invited them there?  Oh, just mad scientist out for revenge, Wolfgang Wagner with his penguin sidekick and his new pet monster.  Then we’ve got Raimi Campbell (hahahhaaaa!!  Love it!), the lispy nerd who is trying to get laid; Iggy, the punk ass fake English douche who apparently can’t fuck for more than a minute and a half and Mona, who likes to show her boobs.

If I post puppet boobs, will I get more hits on my site?

The cinematography was kind of effing fantastic for a puppet movie, the script was deliciously quotable (“Why do you smell like carrots?” …..”I am going to head butt the shit out of you!”) and Raimi was hilarious.  Sure it’s nothing that’s never been done before but it throws together so many elements and nods to cinema history and all in puppet form that it totally rocked my socks.  There’s stop animation (at least I’m pretty sure that’s what I saw) that reminded me of Svankmajer, obvious nods to horror movies of past (Evil Dead and House on Haunted Hill for two), there’s a cartoon portion, there’s patriotic symbolism and did I mention the puppets having sex?  And the penguin?

If I haven’t convinced you by now, I’m sure nothing will but check out the trailer below.

    I like this Misty. Looks like fun. You find the best films.

  4. This looks and sounds awesome!!!!!! I have a review coming up soon for a film called Zombie Lake (not sure when I’ll post it). That might be the ultimate bad movie.

    I think this is a must see!

  6. Hmm, this movie looks interesting. But I have one question, does it contain puppet sex? 😛

    Just think of all the views you’ll get from people typing ‘puppet boobs’ into their favorite search engine.

  7. Puppet Boobs????? OOOOHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYY GAAAAAAWWWWDDDDDDDDDD!!!! Before I consider this – please tell me – as you know I am easily offended – is there any puppet POOP?

  8. something tells me I will not be showing this one to my boy despite the fact that he likes puppets.

  9. Aren’t you going to sensor those titties!!!

  10. Holy Hell, puppet boobs! I am so going to watch this. Also sorry for the long absence, been unbelievably busy and will update all. Just been on auto pilot for a long time.

  11. Holy crap, I need to see this movie. It’s not fair that everyone’s watching it without me…

    Every time I open your blog I think of this one, When I get back to the states, I’ll see if I can order it.

    • Lol, yes, definitely see if you can! I had to watch on YouTube. 🙂 Would love to hear your thoughts!

      • JK Bevill - Lost Creek Publishing

        You can see it on YouTube? Well, I think I will look it up. I will let you know what I think.

      • Yeah. You have to rent it on YouTube (that’s the only place I could find it anyway). Looking forward to hearing what you think!

        Hilarious! At least this official trailer was:

        Some times, when I might see some people when I am out jogging at two or three in the mornings I great them with a rousing, “Hi Ya Puntang!” Some day, I guess I might run into someone who knows what it means.

        The moral of that story is of course, “Don’t be a . . . , watch Puppet Monster Massacre!”
