HOLLYWOOD, CA – May, 2020 – Full Moon Features continue their iconic Puppet Master series with the first-ever standalone feature film centered around its most beloved character, the homicidal hook-handed puppet assassin BLADE. Sick science, punishing puppets, clairvoyant crusaders and a legion of fascist zombies combine in, Blade: The Iron Cross. The film will make its worldwide debut exclusively on the Full Moon Features channel and app on June 26th, 2020.
“The Puppet Master films are pivotal in the Full Moon Features legacy,” said Full Moon Features CEO, Charles Band. “Not only are they favorites among our fans, but they remain the most successful direct-to-video movie franchise in history and they have always been a joy for us to create. Especially during this uncertain time, we couldn’t be more thrilled to give our fans the standalone Blade feature they have been waiting for.”
The film follows Dr. Hauser (Roy Abramsohn, Escape From Tomorrow), the Third Reich’s maddest scientist, as he rises again with murder and mayhem on his mind. As the deranged Nazi doctor’s perverse plot is revealed, psychic journalist Elisa Ivanov (Tania Fox, Art of the Dead) awakens her own angel of death in Blade, and together, maiden and marionette get set to hammer the evil Hauser back into hell where he belongs.
This news follows the company’s debut of Barbie & Kendra Save the Tiger King. Having premiered exclusively on the Full Moon Features channel and app, Barbie & Kendra Save the Tiger King stars John Reinke, the beloved bionic zookeeper and righthand man to Joe Exotic from the Netflix smash docu-series, “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”, alongside Leslie Jordan (“Will and Grace”) who lends his voice to the feature.

ABOUT FULL MOON FEATURES:
Founded in 1989 by iconic independent film producer and director Charles Band, Full Moon Features is the successor to his groundbreaking Empire Pictures Studio from the 1980s. With Empire, Band created now-classic horror films like Re-Animator, From Beyond and Ghoulies. Band’s films helped launch the career of many of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Demi Moore (Parasite), Helen Hunt (Trancers), and Viggo Mortensen (Prison), to name a few. With Full Moon Features, Band has produced more than 150 films, including the Puppet Master franchise, Subspecies, Pit and the Pendulum, Castle Freak, Dollman, Demonic Toys, Prehysteria! Evil Bong, and many more. In addition to feature films, Full Moon Features produces original series, toys, collectibles, merchandise, comic books and publishes the popular horror film magazine Delirium. In 2019, the company launched its most ambitious project to date with “Deadly Ten”, in which 10 new feature films are being produced back-to-back all over the world with completely live-streamed shoots airing on www.DeadlyTen.com. Each film will premiere on Full Moon Features’ streaming channel as well as its Amazon channel and other digital platforms. In 2020, as Hollywood productions shut-down, or were put on hold, Full Moon Features created a series of high concept exploitation pictures produced exclusively under the parameters of the quarantine, beginning with the satirical and hugely successful Corona Zombies and continuing with Barbie & Kendra Save the Tiger King. Each comedic film includes re-dubbed footage from obscure exploitation films along with new footage and existing news footage to create surreal and socially irreverent exploitation entertainment.
