Puppet Master Blade

Today, August 20th, filming is set to begin on the latest installment in Full Moon's PUPPET MASTER franchise, and this one isn't just another sequel or prequel. It's a spin-off that will focus on the most popular puppet of the bunch, Blade. Making this project even cooler is the fact that fans are going to have the opportunity to watch every minute of its production.

Directed by John Lechago, BLADE: THE IRON CROSS has a five day shooting schedule, and for the entire time that its cast and crew are on set making the movie two cameras will be streaming live video to the Full Moon website DeadlyTen.com. Want to see how Blade is brought to life, to get an out-of-order look at the story, and see the actors and characters Blade will be interacting with? All you have to do is go to THIS PAGE.

The live stream will begin at 9:30am Pacific time / 12:30pm Eastern.

Written by Roger Barron, BLADE: THE IRON CROSS has the following synopis: 

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? 

BLADE: THE IRON CROSS and the rest of the features on Full Moon's Deadly Ten slate (including the already shot WEEDJIES: HALLOWEED NIGHT and NECROPOLIS: LEGION) will be released through the Full Moon Features streaming service.

This film is in continuity with Full Moon's previous PUPPET MASTER films and is not connected to the Fangoria reboot PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH.
