Worth Watching for Munro
11 September 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Frankula (2017)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Frankie Abbott (David Barry) is living in an assistant nursing home until one day Clarissa Cobra (Caroline Munro) takes him away. He winds up in the woods with a strange group of people who it turns out are vampires.

There's nothing overly great or even good about this U.K. short but if you're a fan of vampire movies then you'll want to check it out. The main reason to watch this film is for the appearance of Munro who still looks striking all these years after her appearances in the likes of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME and MANIAC. If you're a fan of hers then you'll enjoy seeing her playing a vampire here. Barry, who also wrote the screenplay, is good in the lead role but I must admit that I really didn't laugh at much of the humor.
