Puppet Master: Doktor Death, the most recent installment in the well-known horror series, is now available on Full Moon Features streaming service, which is the only place where it can be watched online right now.
Doktor Death, a puppet that fans of the Puppet Master series saw for the first time in Retro Puppet Master, makes his long-awaited return in this, the second solo spin-off movie of the Puppet Master series. (The first was Blade: The Iron Cross.)
In Retro Puppet Master we learn that Andre Toulon created his first puppets in 1902, long before the events of Puppet Master III: Toulon’s Revenge, one of which is the menacing Doktor Death. A puppet he originally crafted as part of his puppet show about six mortals who are trapped in hell.
Toulon, however, decides to exact his vengeance upon the individual who was responsible for the deaths of his friends by transferring the soul of his companion Duval, a man who had a medical background, into the Doktor Death puppet. This allows Toulon to strike back at the individual who was responsible for the deaths of his friends.
Now, after all these years the Doktor is back and is, unfortunately, making house calls in Puppet Master: Doktor Death.
Let’s check out the trailer
In Puppet Master: Doktor Death we are introduced to April Duval, who has started her new job at the Shady Oaks Senior Living nursing home.
Her first day, which should have been a cause for celebration, was marred by the news that one of the residents had passed away in the middle of the night after suffering a heart attack.
While collecting his personal belongings, April and the rest of the nursing staff at Shady Oaks discover a locked truck in the man’s closet. Inside they find a skull-faced puppet dressed in medical garb.
Unbeknownst to this group, they have just unleashed a terrible evil upon themselves and the rest of the souls unlucky enough to call Shady Oaks their home.
Convinced that the doll is valuable, Flynn, a member of the nursing staff, takes the puppet for himself rather than returning it to the locked trunk.
Doktor Death begins to demonstrate that there are no strings on this deadly puppet after being set free from his confines as a result of Flynn’s selfishness. He does this by amassing a massive body count for such a small puppet throughout his rampage.
A New Level of Fear: Doktor Death, the Intelligent and Deadly Puppet of the Puppet Master Franchise
Doktor Death is an evil invention with a frightening appearance that will stay with you long after you’ve closed your eyes for the night. The puppet has a skull-like face and is dressed in a bloodstained doctor’s apron. This puppet is one of the most intricately designed and skillfully crafted in the series, attesting to Toulon’s careful consideration in its creation.
Doktor Death’s abilities are among its most intriguing features. Doktor Death, unlike the other puppets in the series, is not under Toulon’s spell in this film. Now, without Toulon’s direction, Doktor Death can act and attack autonomously, making it even more dangerous.
The puppet’s intelligence is another important facet. The puppet’s intelligence and strategic planning make it a dangerous foe. The fact that it can outwit and outmaneuver its prey contributes to the terror it inspires.
This puppet also appears to use his medical expertise in a sick and maniacal fashion, climbing inside his victims at one point and using them as a walking skin suit. Somebody should really take away this guy’s license to practice medicine.
Final Thoughts on Doktor Death
Puppet Master: Doktor Death, as a whole, is a definite must-see for any fan of the series. It brings back a puppet that seemed to have disappeared from the series, even though the end of Retro Puppet Master hinted that we’d find out what happened to the puppets and why they didn’t show up in the third film.
Doktor Death, with its sinister aesthetic, unique skillset, and shrewd demeanor, is destined to become a fan favorite. This is a film that horror fans shouldn’t miss.
