Clip from Full Moon’s Blade: The Iron Cross finds multiple dead bodies

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

In just over two weeks, the PUPPET MASTER franchise spin-off BLADE: THE IRON CROSS will be making its debut on the Full Moon Features channel and app (see, and a clip from the film has been released online to give a preview of around 45 seconds of the film. It's kind of an odd clip to release, it doesn't feature the title character or any sort of action, it just shows a couple people talking around covered dead bodies. The clip can be seen above, and is followed by the film's trailer.

Directed by John Lechago from a screenplay by Roger Barron, BLADE: THE IRON CROSS has the following synopsis: 

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.

Tania Fox stars, reprising her PUPPET MASTER: AXIS TERMINATION role of Elisa Ivanov, and is joined in the cast by Roy Abramsohn, Griffin Blazi, Jarrell Hall, and Bobby Reed. Alan Maxson plays the title character in moments when Blade is brought to life with some "man in suit" action.

BLADE: THE IRON CROSS will be released on June 26th.

This film is not connected to the recent reboot PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH. That was a Fangoria production. Fangoria and Full Moon have a deal where Full Moon can continue the original PUPPET MASTER franchise while Fangoria builds their own series on the foundation of THE LITTLEST REICH.
