Made Entirely with Hand Puppets, ‘Frank & Zed’ Is a Blood-Soaked Homage to Classic Monster Movies!

The first ever Nightstream virtual film festival is beyond massive, jam-packed with horror that will overwhelm your decision making this October.

For this writer, one of the most anticipated is the sprawling gothic horror story Frank & Zed, a callback to Peter Jackson’s classic puppet-made horror Meet the Feebles.

Set in a far-away fantasy kingdom, Frank & Zed is an unbelievable DIY passion project from Portland-based filmmaker and puppeteer Jesse Blanchard. The press release explains that it was conceived and filmed over a period of six years and is a love letter to classic terror “filled to the bloody brim with long-forgotten ancient secrets, a towering cursed castle, and a world of unbelievable characters that both honor the legacy and humor of The Muppets while simultaneously making their own ghastly mark on the world of cinema.”

Here’s the full plot crunch to go along with several new images:

Long ago, a foul wizard was cut down by cursed weapons of tremendous power, leaving behind two servants, Frank and Zed.

For centuries, the two monsters have survived by working together: Frank hunts for squirrels to feed Zed, and Zed hooks Frank up to a lightning rod to charge. But just as their decrepit bodies crumble beyond repair, a new threat arises in the nearby village.

In a dark grab for power, the Lord Regent of the village deliberately triggers the curse by sending innocent civilians into the woods. Frank mistakes the wayward villagers for threats, cutting them down and serving their brains to Zed. This awakens a thirst for human flesh in Zed and stirs memories of his tragic past in Frank. In the ensuing chaos, their friendship is torn asunder.

Convinced that killing the monsters is the only way to save themselves, the villagers dig up the cursed weapons and storm the castle. Now, Frank and Zed must come together if they are to survive The Orgy of Blood.
