One of my most anticipated titles from the Nightstream Film Festival, here's a look at photos from Frank & Zed, a puppet horror movie six years in the making! Here's a look at the brand new trailer:
"Long ago, a foul wizard was cut down by cursed weapons of tremendous power, leaving behind two servants, Frank and Zed.
For centuries, the two monsters have survived by working together: Frank hunts for squirrels to feed Zed, and Zed hooks Frank up to a lightning rod to charge. But just as their decrepit bodies crumble beyond repair, a new threat arises in the nearby village.
In a dark grab for power, the Lord Regent of the village deliberately triggers the curse by sending innocent civilians into the woods. Frank mistakes the wayward villagers for threats, cutting them down and serving their brains to Zed. This awakens a thirst for human flesh in Zed and stirs memories of his tragic past in Frank. In the ensuing chaos, their friendship is torn asunder.
Convinced that killing the monsters is the only way to save themselves, the villagers dig up the cursed weapons and storm the castle. Now, Frank and Zed must come together if they are to survive The Orgy of Blood.
Filmed over the course of six years, Frank and Zed is one of only a handful of films made entirely with hand puppets. Featuring stunningly detailed handmade props and creatures and packed with old-school practical effects (from detailed cloud tank shots to fiendishly complex puppet disembowelments), FRANK & ZED is a loving, blood-soaked homage to classic monster movies, delivering a story that’s outrageously fun, funny, and surprisingly tender."
