    PUPPETMASTER VS. DEMONIC TOYS?!

    That's great and all... But where are the first five Puppet Master movies?! Are they not getting released for legal reasons or something? I know there was originally a boxset but it went quickly out of print years ago.

    NOOOOO!!! Not Ghost In the Machine! Not the worst movie of all-time! I was really hoping Anchor Bay's website was just kidding about that one.
