Having acquired Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich following its premiere at New Orleans’ Overlook Film Festival, RLJE Films have announced that they plan to release the much anticipated reboot of the cult straight-to-video film series this coming August.
In addition, a new still from the film has been released, showing the iconic Udo Kier (Suspiria, Mark of The Devil, Blade) in heavy make-up. Kier stars alongside the great Barbara Crampton, with Thomas Lennon, Nelson Franklin and Charlene Yi.
The film comes from Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, the directing duo responsible for the Evil Dead-inspired splatterfest Wither and the upcoming They Cast no Shadows. It was scripted by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99).
“During a roadtrip to a convention for the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders, a comic book nerd, his new girlfriend and his best friend come face to face with a set of sadistic nazi puppets out for blood.”
