Barbara Crampton reveals who she's playing in the Puppet Master reboot

I'm not the biggest PUPPET MASTER fan on the planet by any means, but with all the cool shite we have seen pumping out of the new reboot of the franchise, courtesy of BONE TOMAHAWK's S. Craig Zahler, I am getting more and more excited every day to check out the flick once it hits.

One of the main draws for me is the casting of Barbara Crampton.

Until today we weren't sure who Crampton was set to play (she did have a cameo in the first flick) but recently she talked to Scream Horror Magazine and dropped details on her new character, which you can find below. She also talked a bit about the reboot's plot and how its tone will be different than previous PUPPET MASTER flicks.

Crampton on her new PUPPET MASTER character:

My character is a tour guide and an ex-police officer... I was part of the police crew that brought Andre Toulon down many years ago and then thirty years later, something is happening. 

Crampton on the plot of PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH:

There’s a convention and some puppet’s are going to be sold at this convention so a lot of people that bought puppets from Andre Toulon many years ago have come back to this first ever convention so all these people and all these puppets are brought together for the first time in a very long time and something happens. Obviously, I can’t say what happens but it’s very slyly written and there are a few different storylines going on and Craig has written a lot of really interesting characters that you care about so I’m really excited about that one too.

Crampton on PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH's different direction:

It’s completely different, yeah. He’s a really talented writer and this movie has a lot of comedy in it and a lot of heart and drama as well. It’s a really tight script and they wanted to bring some other ’80s people on board like Michael Paré and Udo Kier and then they had a lot of comedians that they brought onto the movie too because they wanted to have some throwback flavour to it with some of us old people (laughs) but also to bring in some fresh, young comedians so it’s a good marriage of both I think. The script is evidence to that as well.

So there you have it, folks. Crampton is playing an ex-cop who took down the Puppet Master back in the day. Personally, I'm just glad Crampton is in the new movie. She could be playing one of the puppets and I'd still be there opening day. Actually... a Barbara Crampton puppet in Puppet Master sounds like the coolest idea I've had all week... Make it happen, guys!

PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH is directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund from a script by S. Craig Zahler and stars Barbara Crampton (see below), Thomas Lennon, Udo Kier, Michael Paré, Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin, Alex Beh, Tina Parker, Skeeta Jenkins, and Charlyne Yi.
