VEGAS 2016: Full Moon to showcase opportunities around cult horror series, Puppet Master

“I’m excited to help take our Puppet Master mythology to the next level with the new film and just as thrilled about the exciting licensing possibilities it will help support.”

Full Moon and indie film director Charles Band are heading to this year's Las Vegas Licensing Expo to showcase  licensing opportunities around the Puppet Master franchise.

The studio is currently developing a big-budget re-invention of the cult horror franchise, titled Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich.

““I’m excited to help take our Puppet Master mythology to the next level with this new film and just as thrilled about the exciting licensing possibilities it will help support,” said Band.

“Puppet Master is Full Moon’s most internationally recognised film franchise and the characters are iconic. I’m looking forward to meeting the fans and especially, I’m thrilled to be bringing my cavalcade of crazy creatures to Vegas."

Band’s original 1989 Puppet Master film told the story of a horde of cursed and murderous living dolls, each of whom have distinct and deadly identities and powers.

The film was a hit on home video and has since been followed by sequels, comic books and toys.
