This movie may not be for fans of the original series of Puppet Master films. It is quite possibly more violent than any of the prior. I, for one, believe that in a order for a movie about killers puppets to be somewhat shocking in 2018, you have to go all out with the gore. And it does. There are easily 21 scenes of puppets viscously slaughtering (if not more) people. It is demented and pleasantly mean spirited. It's exactly everything I've ever wished for in a Puppet master film. Thomas Lennon does well, including several other actors. If you don't like quality practical effect masterpieces of gore and prefer action and adventure puppets this is not for you. But if you want to see incredible splatter watch this.
