In this puppet horror comedy gorefest, Frank & Zed are two monsters who live peacefully in a derelict castle, relying on each other for survival. With the ruler of the nearby kingdom close to death, an evil magistrate is determined to seize power and tricks the local villagers to attack the lonely castle and our hapless heroes. Jesse Blanchard’s funny but heartfelt labour of love (and blood & guts) about dependence, friendship and consequences was seven years in the making and shot almost entirely using practical effects. Screening with Yeast (Elliot Gonzo, UK, 2021, 12 mins).

This film contains scenes of violence (towards puppets).
