Last night Bloody Disgusting fans were welcomed with open arms to filming location of Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich where everyone was able to witness 45 minutes of production LIVE from the Dallas set. The special event was to take fans behind-the-scenes of a car crash, while being treated to other surprises, along with a chat with star Thomas Lennon (Hellbaby, “The State”, “Reno 911”)! Here’s a replay of the stream for those who missed out. Watch for tons more news as production continues on…
Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich hails from Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, the duo behind the deliciously gory Blood Runs Cold and Wither.
The new film, penned by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk), takes place 30 years later:
“Puppet Master: The Little Reich” centers on a recently divorced young man discovers a mint condition Blade doll in his deceased brother’s closet and plans to sell the toy at a convention in Texas celebrating the 30th anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose at during the auction when a strange force animates all of the various puppets throughout the convention as they go on a bloody killing spree.
Comedy thesp Thomas Lennon (Hellbaby, “The State”) stars with Udo Kier, Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin (Scott Pilgrim, Jobs), Charlyne Yi (Cloverfield), and Alex Beh, with genre fav Barbara Crampton (From Beyond, Re-Animator, You’re Next, Sun Choke), Tina Parker (“Breaking Bad”, The Final Destination), Skeeta Jenkins and the great Michael Paré (Streets on Fire).
