Puppet Master

Trivia: Whenever we see Pinhead's hands punching someone or picking something up, the hands are actually the hands of a stunt-woman named Cindy Sorensen. Sorensen has dwarfism, so her hands were the perfect size to portray the puppet's.


Trivia: The puppets actually only have about five minutes of screentime, despite being the main selling point of the film.


Trivia: Whenever we see a wide-shot of the Bodega Bay Inn on the cliffside, it's actually a scale model that's around the size of a refrigerator.


Trivia: "Puppet Master" was originally intended to be a theatrical release. However, series creator Charles Band found that he was making more money in the video market than in theaters, so the film was instead released direct-to-video. It was a huge hit for Band, leading to ten official sequels, a non-canonical spin-off (Puppet Master VS Demonic Toys) and a reboot. (The Littlest Reich).


Trivia: Originally, an early version of the puppet "Six Shooter" was intended to be included in the film. The puppet would have been a six-armed ninja. Series creator Charles Band liked the idea of a puppet with six arms, and reused the idea later on in the third film, which introduced "Six Shooter."


Continuity mistake: Toward the end when Alex is being punched by the "Puppet Master" his mouth is all bloody. Then Megan smashes a vase on The Puppet Master's head, and in the next shot Alex's face is no longer bloody. In the next closeup of him the blood has returned. (01:13:05)
