Only astute fans of the Puppet Master franchise have been privy to the development of the upcoming new movie Blade: The Iron Cross, as we offered a heads-up on back in October. This standalone feature will follow one particular puppet, Blade, in a solo adventure fans have been clamoring for. Continuing the low-key nature of the film's promotion so far, Full Moon Features quietly released the first official teaser just ahead of Christmas, and you can check it out above.
"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," the synopsis reads. "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."
Directed by John Lechago based on a screenplay from Roger Barron, Blade: The Iron Cross stars Tania Fox, Roy Abramsohn, Griffin Blazi, Jarrell Hall, and Bobby Ree. The film is set to see its world premiere on Full Moon Features and Full Moon's Amazon channel sometime in March 2020. When we have more specifics, we'll be sure to fill you in with the latest information.
