Puppet Master spin-off Blade: The Iron Cross gets DVD and Blu-ray release

Released through Full Moon's streaming service and Amazon channel a couple months ago (you can watch it on Amazon Prime HERE), the PUPPET MASTER spin-off BLADE: THE IRON CROSS is now set to receive a physical media release later this year. The film will reach DVD and Blu-ray on November 10th, and copies can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK.

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 reprises 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 through "man in suit" methods.

Bonus features on the physical media release will include: 

– Behind the Scenes Featurette
– Full Moon Features Trailers
– Director's Commentary
– Set Stills

I enjoyed BLADE: THE IRON CROSS well enough, giving it a 6/10 review, and will be adding it to my PUPPET MASTER collection.
