Q&A and Puppet Sneak Peek with Jesse Blanchard
Two decrepit monsters must team-up to survive the wrath of the mob in this action monster movie done completely with puppets.
Centuries ago, a desperate battle left a village wasted, a new bride dead, and two mortal enemies dependent on each other for survival. Forgotten amongst the crumbling ruins, our two heroes have eked out a meager existence, each responsible for feeding the other.
One fateful day, a villager trespasses into Frank’s hunting grounds. The resulting ‘harvest’ provides Zed with a full tummy and sets the entire town on a course of bloody retribution.
Our undead heroes are out-numbered, out-axed, and falling apart but they’re not going down without orchestrating a macabre symphony of blood, guts, & felt.
“Frank & Zed reminds you that horror can be as fun as it is scary.”
— Tom Holland (Child’s Play)
