Plot & Details

Jake Hoffman, Jeremy Sisto, Devon Aoki, and Ralph Macchio star in first-time screenwriter/director Jordan Galland's horror comedy about a Shakespearian actor who agrees to direct a most unusual stage production of Hamlet. An out-of-work actor (Hoffman) in search of his big break believes that he's got his shot at stardom when he's hired to direct an unconventional off-Broadway production of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. But this adaptation of Shakespeare's classic play isn't just different because it takes a few intriguing liberties with the familiar tale, the most remarkable aspect of this particular production of Hamlet is the fact that it was written by a genuine Romanian vampire (John Ventimiglia). Now, as the rehearsals get under way and the body count starts to rise, the ambitious director struggles to gain control of the production while staying faithful to his one true love (Aoki) and dodging the detective (Sisto) who has made it his mission to solve the recent rash of unusual murders. Meanwhile, a powerful mob boss (Macchio) does his best to battle the legions of the undead.
