In PUPPET MASTER XI – AXIS TERMINATION, the final chapter of the AXIS Saga, we find our heroic band of lethal puppets—BLADE, PINHEAD, TUNNELER, JESTER, SIX SHOOTER and LEECH WOMAN joining forces with a secret team of Allied Operatives, all masters of psychic powers, as they face off together against a new bunch of evil Nazi adversaries and their collection of vicious Axis Puppets in a showdown that will decide the future of the free world!




  • Last of the Axis trilogy (Evil, Rising, Termination)
  • The lighting in this movie was inspired by Mario Bava movies and Italian Giallo films.
  • Filming started on September 12th, 2016.
  • This movie will be the first in the series to be made via crowdfunding.
  • Charles Band teamed up with the El Rey Network TV station to run a contest where the winner could star in the movie and be killed by the puppets also fans could pay via crowdfunding to get a small role in the movie.
  • Six-Shooter wasn't originally in the script but added in after they had gotten more donations.

  • Charles Band promised that this would be the bloodiest/goriest entry in the franchise.
  • Kip Canyon and Jean Louise O'Sullivan reprise their roles as Danny & Beth from 'Axis Rising'.
  • Torch was set to be in this movie which would have been his first appearance since Puppet Master 5, however Charles Band decided to cut him from the final movie and remove him from the poster as he could not find a way to work him into the story.
