“What’s the difference between a jack-o’-lantern and a… *hiccup* …and a blonde? There is no difference. They both have a blank expression, and are hollow inside! AHHHHHHAHAHAHAHA!”
After co-writing and co-directing almost a decade of blood-soaked horror alongside Tommy Wiklund and David Liljeblad, Sonny Laguna is no stranger to gore – which Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich provides by the bucket-load – and was kind enought to answer a few questions for Attack from Planet B.
“Our initial reaction to what was handed to us was that this was an enormous undertaking.”
As the twelfth entry in the Puppet Master franchise, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich was helmed under Cinestate/Fangoria, and thus is not a Full Moon feature film. Nor is this film a sequel to the previous entry in the franchise: 2017’s Puppet Master: Axis Termination. Instead, with the blessing of Charles Band, The Littlest Reich is a comedic reboot of the series, written by Steven Craig Zahler, and directed by Swedish duo, Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund. Nazi puppets. Hate crimes. Gore. Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich would be downright offensive if not for Zahler’s deadpan humour…
“World War III begins on your toy shelf.”
On 23 September, Indicator shines a light on a quartet of outstanding, yet little-seen films which star some of Britain’s most celebrated acting talent. First, Alberto Cavalcanti’s classic They Made Me a Fugitive (1947); secondly, Michael Winner’s The System (1964); next, Indicator proudly present their second world Blu-ray premiere – the fascinating sixties drama 90° in the Shade (1965); and last but by no means least, Indicator present another long-overdue UK Blu-ray premiere – Matthew Chapman’s Hussy (1980).
“Gangway for gangland’s blazing guns!”
Back in 2015, Ted Geoghegan released his directorial debut We Are Still Here and took a lot of people by surprise, including myself. A well-crafted horror that didn’t follow the same old cliches that a lot of horrors do today. His follow up, Mohawk, is kind of following the same route. Not so much a horror this time, but a film that depicts plenty of horrors and a complete diversion from his previous movie. The tale follows the events of 1812 where war is boiling over between the Americans and the British. Sandwiched in between is the Mohawk tribe who reluctantly refuse to take sides or fight.
“They’re gonna kill us all if we don’t fight.”

“Prepare to meet your new best friend.”
It’s been thirty-one years since the release of Tom Holland and Don Mancini’s original Child’s Play, the notorious slasher-horror-comedy hybrid with an avid cult following. After six sequels under the Child’s Play and Chucky titles, director Lars Klevberg and screenwriter Tyler Burton-Smith have delivered a complete re-imagining of the original, set in the modern day. The question that comes up is “is this necessary?”, a fair inquiry, as some may consider the franchise to be over-saturated. However, it’s important to say that I’ve never seen any of the previous films, including the 1988 original…
“More than a toy… he’s your best friend.”
I adored Species as a teenager, having persuaded my parents to rent it on VHS back in 1998/99. They trusted me with the horror genre, and I doubt they realised how sexually charged this genre flick actually was. Yeah, the VHS cover featured Natasha Henstridge in a state of seductive transformation – a extraterrestrial-human hybrid – but it also featured headshots of Forest Whitaker, Alfred Molina, Michael Madsen, and the Academy award-winning Ben Kingsley! How were they supposed to know that they had just rented their thirteen-year-old son smut!
