The dimwitted Tank is hired by an eccentric doctor that has become the new owner of Andre Toulon's magical living puppets. Dr. Magrew uses Tank's uncanny woodworking skills to begin carving a brand-new puppet for his own cruel intentions. Borrowing generously from 1973's SSSSSSS, director David DeCoteau proves that the real CURSE OF THE PUPPET MASTER is Full Moon's unwillingness to give up on the failing series. There is a spark of creativity here in the sixth installment, but not enough to make up for the weak acting and exhaustive plot. The puppets, themselves, are poorly articulated, and appear far less than they have in previous installments. Even die-hard fans will find this to be a difficult watch.
