The history of horror began when Andre Toulon, a benign toy maker, became the master of a group of killer puppets. It's a tale of sorcery, death, resurrection and deadly revenge as told by Eric Weiss - a young boy who was once protected from Hitler's SS by Toulon. Weiss, now a grown man, has spent his life trying to perfect Toulon's secret of giving life to the inanimate. In comes Maclain, a rogue agent who wants to peddle the secret on the open market. Maclain breaks into Weiss' lab, shoots and tortures him, but Weiss will not give up the secret. The tale unfolds, weaving new footage with flashbacks from previous Puppet Master films as it becomes a battle of wills between Weiss and Maclain. The new puppet master remains defiant as the assassin moves in for the kill, unaware that Weiss has found the secret and Toulon's puppets are ready to shed blood for their master again.
