The Indiegogo campaign for Puppet Master: Axis Termination has been rolling along rather nicely for a while, and has now been announced as a resounding success. This latest chapter is the eleventh (and apparently final) instalment in the series, which started back in 1989, and also spawned 2004’s Puppet Master Vs. Demonic Toys crossover. The series has proved an ongoing hit for Full Moon Features, the production company of legendary low budget horror maestro Charles Band.
Full Moon have now released a synopsis for Axis Termination, included in the press release which begins:
