It seems with the success of Joe Bob Briggs The Last Drive-In, which aired live on Shudder recently, other horror entities have begun to take notice of the craving amongst horror fans for live stream parties. This Friday, Fangoria will be hosting a live watch party for their new film, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich...
...This is the first time that a Puppet Master film has been released wide in theaters, and so Fangoria (in conjunction with Cinestate) is celebrating by inviting fans to join the cast and crew in a live viewing of the film, beginning August 17th at 9:30pm CST! Throughout the film, cast and crew, as well as producers Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk, will be running a live Q&A on Twitter and Facebook, taking YOUR questions! More details on that below! You can RSVP for the event here.
I had the chance to participate in the live streaming of The Last Drive-In and witnessed thousands of horror fans communicating and commenting through Twitter like it was one giant sleepover. It was one of if not THE coolest experiences I've ever had on social media, and so I'm thrilled to learn that Fangoria is continuing the trend of live streaming horror films with Puppet Master: The Littles Reich. Just imagine the legions of Puppet Master fans as we watch Blade and co slice and dice their way through the silver screen once again.
As an added bonus, Fangoria will also be giving away a life-sized replica of the knife wielded by Blade! Details will be released through Fangoria's Instagram this Thursday, August 16th, so make sure to follow along for a chance at winning what Fangoria describes as "THE coolest cantaloupe slicer on the block".
Puppet Master: The Little Reich is directed by Sonny Laguna & Tommy Wiklund (Animalistic) with a script by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk). The film features genre stars such as Thomas Lennon, Barbara Crampton, Michael Pare, and Udo Kier.
All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets up for auction at a convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that's motivated by an evil as old as time.
Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich releases on VOD and select theaters August 17th.
