Garlic & Lavender
Nick Warburton
Directed by Kirree Seddon
(30th October 2004)

HERE'S A TIP.. Read the text portions of this page while your computer loads the photos.

Dolly and Clara arrive at Castle Drackenberg, unaware that danger lurks round every corner, for the castle's owner, Count Drackenberg, is a vampire! In Garlic and Lavender, Nick Warburton combines every traditional element of the vampire horror genre - including a sinister henchman, surly villagers and a doughty vampire expert - with a strong measure of daft comedy, to hilarious effect!
