Like it or hate it, you won't easily forget it!
31 December 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Years ago, prior to its release on DVD, I spent months trying to track down this film. Finally, a friend mailed me a dub of this low-budget film. I watched it and couldn't believe it didn't have a distributer. Thankfully, times have moved on.

The film itself is very low budget. It's like cut-price Troma (crossed with early John Waters) and would appeal to the same audience. Originally, videos were available from the director's own site at a reasonable price. I'd also been informed that the film was recently "filmlooked" to remove signs of its video origins. The version I viewed was, however, a copy of the original release.

The film tells the tale of Frank, an ageing warehouse worker who lives in an office with his cats and desperately seeks female company. Frank was taught at an early age that it's okay to kill people for being annoying as long as you give them warnings first. Thus, there's quite a high body count in the movie including some very bloody (but fake looking) deaths.

The film uses some real characters to add authenticity to the proceedings and so some of the acting is less than an Oscar winning standard (Chick Carter has to be seen to be believed!).

Some of the film borders on adult territory (there's use of some prosthetics that you wouldn't see in mainstream releases) but it's good, dirty fun (if you aren't shocked easily).

Part horror, part comedy...this is worth tracking down if you like your horror cheap and cheerful.

I for one think "The Bride of Frank" deserves its new-found life on DVD. It's a party movie (like "Story of Ricky") and like it or hate it, you won't easily forget it......
