Did You Know a New Puppet Master Movie is Coming?
Blade the Iron Cross is the standalone spinoff fans have been clamoring for.
By M.T. Bates
Sometimes you don’t know if you should feel angry at yourself for not knowing about a movie being worked on. By complete chance, while looking something up, I came across a title of a new movie called Blade the Iron Cross, with a poster I wasn’t expecting.
I wondered how I could have missed this announcement, or the fact that it was only 2 months away from release. Then I wondered how many other people knew about this next Puppet Master film. I’d take a guess and say not many, so let’s change that.
I was a massive fan of Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, so clearly I am on board for another entry in the long-running Full Moon franchise, but this one is playing out a little differently. The synopsis taken from IMDb is as follows.
For decades the fans have been clamoring for it, and now Full Moon delivers with the first standalone feature debut of one of its most beloved (and most frightful) characters: the hook-handed maniac puppet, BLADE. Charles Band's PUPPET MASTER series continues as an unspeakable evil from Blade's past emerges in the form of a murderous Nazi scientist named Dr. Hauser. As Hauser's heinous crimes are discovered, the psychic war journalist, Elisa Ivanov, awakens Blade, and together the bloody journey of revenge begins. It's Herr Hauser's reanimated undead army versus a possessed doll and a beautiful vengeance-seeking clairvoyant. Who will win, and how will it affect the Full Moon Universe? Find out in BLADE: THE IRON CROSS.
This wouldn’t be the first film in the franchise that goes back in time, but it will be the first that hones in one single puppet and its past. I also can’t say for sure, but I would assume that this movie is set in the same timeline as Littlest Reich. The movie sounds like more insanity and that genuinely has me giddy. The best part, however, is according to IMDB, Blade the Iron Cross drops on December 13th.
I’m pretty bummed that there hasn’t been any kind of marketing for this movie aside from a video or two on the Full Moon YouTube page, which don’t have many views. Hopefully, the studio does something to let people know this movie is coming out soon. It would be a shame if it went by unnoticed.
