Tomato saucy!
22 February 2017 | by alove-54883See all my reviews

The first thing to remember about "Frankula" is that it's meant to be fun, and as far as I am concerned it is. The story involves Frankie Abbott of TV's "Please Sir!" and "The Fenn Street Gang", played by David Barry, reprising the role, who is now in a home. I don't want to give away any of the plot but the story does involve a liaison in a cemetery with three luscious vampires and their male master, chips and tomato sauce are also involved!. The male vampire is played by newcomer Martin Rudman, while the three luscious lady vamps are played by Caroline Munro and Judy Matheson both looking just as lovely as ever. The third vampire is played by the gorgeous Emma Dark, model, actor and certainly no stranger to making her own successful short films. The plot isn't difficult at all to follow. It's a bit of fun, doesn't pretend to be anything else, and at 7 minutes long won't take up a great deal of your time to watch. Give it a look, just remember to bring your own tomato sauce!.
