Puppet Master II is a horror movie from 1990, directed by David Allen, sequel to the original Puppet Master from 1989. The movie stars Elizabeth Maclellan as Carolyn, a young woman who seeks to uncover the dark secrets of the puppet master Andre Toulon (Steve Welles), and Collin Bernsen as a paranormal investigator named Michael Kenney.

The film takes place one year after the events of the first movie. The movie starts with the reincarnation of Toulon, who was killed by the Nazis in the previous film, turning his puppets into murderous creatures again. However, Toulon's spirit and willpower continue to control the possessed puppets as they embark on a killing spree in a hotel. Michael unknowingly stirs them up by attempting to communicate with the deceased Toulon through his puppets, unaware of the danger that awaits him.

As the body count rises, Carolyn arrives at the hotel to investigate rumors about the killer puppets. She discovers what is happening and joins forces with Michael to stop them before anyone else gets hurt. However, their quest is not easy as they face off against the powerful puppets, each one designed with a unique and deadly ability.

The movie is full of suspenseful scenes and gruesome images as the puppets attack their prey. It is easy to connect with the struggling characters as they try to escape from the unrelenting puppets. The film's setting is creepy, and sense of claustrophobia builds as the action takes place in the confines of the hotel.

The characterization of the puppet master Andre Toulon is well-done. His character is mysterious and unpredictable, always lurking around the scenes, pulling the strings of the puppets. His character arc adds some depth to the story as we learn more about him and his motivations.

The puppets themselves are fascinating. Each puppet has its own personality and weapon of choice. In this movie, the puppets are even more realistic and lifelike, which makes them more frightening. One of the most notable puppets is Torch, a small puppet with a flame throwing ability. The design of the puppets and their abilities show creativity and imagination, highlighting the attention to detail by the filmmakers.

The acting is decent, but some of the lines and character actions might seem cheesy and unrealistic by today's standards. Collin Bernsen's character, in particular, comes off as arrogant and arrogant at times, which doesn't work well for the story. Moreover, some of the plot devices lack coherence, which can be frustrating to some viewers.

Overall, Puppet Master II is an enjoyable horror movie. The film has a lot of ideas going on, and it expands on the story established in the first movie. It's a fun movie to watch, and horror fans will appreciate the creativity of the puppet designs and the suspenseful scenes. However, it is not suitable for children and sensitive viewers due to its blood and gore content.

Puppet Master II is a 1991 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5.
