13 Nights of Elvira Preview Puppet Master

Official preview of the episode.

In the second episode of 13 Nights of Elvira the mistress of the dark presents the movie Puppet Master.

During the introduction she controls a puppet version of herself, which is then attacked by the puppet Blade, while she was listing the Puppet Master sequels. After cutting puppet Elvira's strings, Blade attacks Elvira herself. Later, Elvira is also attacked by Pinhead, that strangles her from behind and then by Tunneler from under the sofa.

Note that the attack of Blade is entirely new footage, since a Blade puppet was apparently available for the scene. For the Pinhead attack, an actor interpreted his hands, but when the puppet's face is shown it's recycled footage from the movie. The Tunneler attack is entirely recycled footage. Since at least the Blade attack is original, this counts as an actual type 1 link, unlike Elvira's usual interactions with movie clips.

A trivial note goes to the movies Elvira is listing: she mentions Puppet Master 3 and then Puppet Master 4: Toulon's Revenge. This is a mistake, for the third movie is titled Puppet Master 3: Toulon's Revenge, while Puppet Master 4 has no subtitle.


Full Moon Features licensed their movies for the show, and apparently also provided the Blade prop, so the creators of 13 Nights of Elvira could freely use the character.
