Charles Band is headed to a city near you with his 3rd Annual Full Moon Horror Road Show. Most people recognize him for his PUPPETMASTER series. I used to love to stay up late and watch those puppets creeping around killing people. I still have my Pinhead and Leech Lady figures somewhere. But Blade was my favorite.
PUPPETMASTER is still the highest marketed movie franchise in the independent (direct to video) catergory. Another one you might remember is his Trancer series staring Helen hunt or perhaps you remember him as the executive producer on Ghoulies. Whatever the case he is remembered.

(HOLLYWOOD) Charles Band, founder of sci fi/horror movie studio Full Moon Features and whose 270 plus films has established him as one of Hollywood’s most successful and prolific cult movie impresarios, has announced that he will stage the 3rd incarnation of his FULL MOON HORROR ROAD SHOW this summer.
This one night only show is a horror-palooza of sorts. Cult Horror Film Director Charles Band packs his shows to the brim with puppets, creatures and rare film clips. For horror movie fans and fans of the PUPPETMASTER film series, this event will feature unique interactive audience participations on stage, upcoming new release film trailers by Full Moon Features, surprise celebrity guest appearances, original puppet and doll auctions, hot chicks, unique merchandise and novelty items and live special effects demonstrations!!
A pioneer in the field of home video, Band has built a reputation as a prolific and frequent director of entertaining low-budget genre films. Band has produced a string of features variously delving into the realms of horror, sci-fi and fantasy. “The Puppetmaster Series” may be his most celebrated and popular franchise. 8 Puppetmaster features have been released to date and the franchise is known as the most successful independent direct to video horror film series of all time. Full Moon has also created many other well know franchises such as the TRANCERS series starring Helen Hunt and Tim Thomerson, the SUBSPECIES series shot on location in Transylvania Romania as well as DOLLMAN, DEMONIC TOYS, KILLLJOY and THE GINGERDEADMAN (starring Gary Busey as a killer cookie!). In addition to all the feature film work FULL MOON is also very active in creating and marketing a wide variety of merchandise including original action figures, resin statues and 1:1 scale replicas of its more well known puppets and dolls.
“The show is absolutely unique and totally unpredictable! It’s extremely interactive and I’m really excited to get back on the road and have fun with all the fans. The event really gets crazier every year – I feel a bit like those travelling turn of the century magicians who went from city to city doing bizarre stuff on stage. And I’m very lucky that there are so many fans out who like my films and enjoy coming to the show!”
