Enjoyed IT!! Frankula is good campy FUN!!
22 December 2017 | by johnny-motleySee all my reviews

I watched FRANKULA on Amazon this year. It's a throwback to Frankie Abbott with a tip to Hammer Horror. The "PLEASE, SIR!" actor (David Barry) falls asleep and dreams of Vampires in this campy little Horror-Comedy. There are one-liners of comedy "GOT ANY, CHIPS?" - and FRANKULA Features some Vampire Madness!

The humor is very British and there are faces some might be aware of: Caroline Munro, Judy Matheson and Emma Dark (who play the female Vampires). Actress, Fenella Fielding also provides a voice Narration. Martin Rudman - a new comer - also stays as a Vampire. Directed by Jason Read of Robo Films. The Misty Moon Team was also behind FRANKULA and is filmed in London.

It's good Campy fun which is nicely shot for a low budget film. It is a short 7 Minute effort, but won't take up a lot of your time. The plan is just to Entertain in a Light-Hearted way.
