Starring:
A bunch of assholes & the beautiful Linda Hamilton

On TMR’s dual episode Halloween Special, we watched 1989’s mountain of shit that is “Puppet Master” and everyone’s favorite kid-punching fall-favorite “Children of the Corn.” We talk about a specific kind of asshole that would bring puppets to life and shove them in a hole in the wall in a hotel and wonder just who would adopt two kids who have seen their entire town murdered by a bunch of poofy-haired preteens.
