In further horror news, in addition to earlier learning a third Jeepers Creepers flick is in development, now it’s become known the 11th Puppet Master film is in the works.
Writer and director Charles Band let the news be known about the next Puppet Master, titled “Axis Of Termination,” on a vidcast (see below).
“The last think I am going to let you know, since there are a lot of Puppet Master fans out there,” Band offered. “I think we are going to make – I hope at least – is attempt to make our best Puppet Master ever. It’s the very next film we are shooting after Killjoy’s Psycho Circus and Evil Bong: High 5. So we are going to shoot it either January or February. It’s call Puppet Master: Axis Termination. It’s the end of the Axis series. We had Axis of Evil and Axis Rising. This sort of ends that trilogy. It’s a very edgy, very hard script. It’s a departure. It’s much more like Puppet Master 3. That kind of vibe. That kind of blood. I think it’s going to be a real good one. We have a lot of good feedback from fans over the last few years about our last two Puppet Master films, and I think the script is going to be terrific, and we’ll deliver one that you guys will like.”
Puppet Master first appeared back in 1989 featuring the now classic anthropomorphic puppets, Blade, Pinhead, Jester, Tunneler, Leech Woman, Gengie, Shreddar Khan and lots more, brought to life through an Egyptian spell. In addition to the movies, there are Puppet Master comic books and figurines.
You can catch up on Puppet Master on Amazon.
Here is the first movie’s description:
Alex Whittaker, played by Paul Le Mat, and three other gifted psychics are investigating rumors that the secret of life has been discovered by master puppeteer Andre Toulon. The psychics quickly discover Toulon’s secret of death in the form of five killer puppets – each one uniquely qualified for murder and mayhem. Together, they’re an army of skilled assassins, genetically programmed to guard the deadly secrets of PUPPET MASTER.
