Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead

OK, this movie looks magnificent! Neil and I have always enjoyed a good vampire movie. And this one has both Shakespeare and vampires. What’s not to love? Plus a supporting cast of Ralph Macchio and Jeremy Sisto.

Official trailer below:

Thanks Night of the Living Podcast for the tip! Plot synopsis from

An out of work lothario, Julian Marsh (Hoffman), scores a break as the director of an off-Broadway play. The play is a bizarre adaptation of Hamlet written by a pale Romanian (Ventimiglia) who is actually a master vampire. A perfect combination of low-brow humor and high-brow aesthetics, this comedy/horror film follows an eccentric cast of characters to explain the connection between Hamlet, the Holy Grail, and some very sexy vampires.

No release date, but it is listed as being in post production according to IMDb. This may just get me back in a movie theater.

This movie is not to be confused with the movie Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead starring Tim Roth and Gary Oldman. That is an amazing film that we totally need to watch again. No vampire in that version, though.
