Horror Legend Scoring Upcoming “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich”

I have stated on various social media outlets that next to the upcoming Halloween reboot, my most anticipated film of 2018 is the Charles Band produced Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. Merely days away from the appearance of this flick on various VOD platforms, I was stoked to learn that iconic composer Fabio Frizzi has written the score.

Fabio Frizzi should be no stranger to the hardcore fans of the horror genre. Frizzi is most well-known for his work with legendary Italian director Lucio Fulci. He is responsible for the haunting scores of films like Zombi 2City of the Living Dead, and The Beyond. When it comes to horror movie composers, there are few names more regarded than Fabio Frizzi.

The reimagining is being directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund. Charles Band returns again to produce, and the script is written by S. Craig Zahler (who wrote and directed Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99). Fans will be able to catch The Littlest Reich in limited theaters and on VOD starting August 17th. A DVD/Blu-ray release is slated for next month.


Recently divorced and reeling, Edgar returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When Edgar finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash. Girl-next-door Ashley and and comic book pal Markowitz join Edgar for a doomed road trip to an auction at a convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.



About Chuck Ransford 100 Articles
Ah now for the one thing everyone loathes...writing about themselves! Well for starters, my name is Chuck, and I am a south Jersey transplant living in Amish country. I’ve been a horror fan since 5th grade, about 16 years ago. My horror fandom started when I got my hands on a copy of Jay Anson’s novel The Amityville Horror. The book terrified me, and I knew I just had to watch the movie. An older cousin of mine had a copy of it, and that was the genesis of my obsession with the genre. Over the years I have expressed my horror fandom in many ways. Since about 2005 I have been regularly attending horror conventions. These have been great ways to amass collectibles, movies, and to meet some of my favorite celebrities. My best friend Mike and I used to run our own horror blog years ago, and we also dabbled in script writing. I am looking forward to going back to writing about horror, something I’ve always loved. When I’m not working (I work at PNC Bank), my non-horror interests are studying theology and economics, watching Japanese tokusatsu, and doing play-by-play commentary for professional wrestling. I’m also a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society and singing in a Barbershop quartet. Oh, and I’m probably the biggest fan of the Golden Girls you’ll ever meet. My top 5 horror flicks (definitely subject to change): 1. Cannibal Holocaust (1980) 2. Basket Case (1982) 3. Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) 4. The Beyond (1981) 5. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
