Production has officially begun on the eleventh and final installment of the Puppet Master Series, Puppet Master: Axis Termination. Today is the fourth day on the set and director Charles Band has just released some behind the scenes photos. Check them out below.
For those who are not aware of the series, it is produced by the well known low budget independent studio Full Moon Features. The first film debuted in 1989 and its success has led to nine sequels, a non-canon crossover with the characters of the film series Demonic Toys, several comic series, and various collector items. The studio is run by Charles Band, who is also taking on the directorial duties for the final installment. A successful IndieGogo campaign was run in January in order to raise additional funding for the production, mainly for the special effects. According to a recent announcement, they are planning a "very ambitious 2-3 month FX schedule with several amazing FX teams involved, using a combination of many types of FX, including rod puppetry, animatronics and some stop motion animation."
The plot involves the well know group of lethal puppets joining forces with a secret team of Allied operatives, who have psychic abilities, in order to take on a group of Nazi adversaries and their own collection of evil puppets. Full Moon is hoping to finish production by the end of 2016 and have a release date sometime in the beginning of 2017.
