Storyline

Julian Marsh is an out of work ladies' man who lands a job directing a bizarre adaptation of Hamlet. After casting his best friend and his ex-girlfriend in the show, Julian finds himself in the middle of a two thousand year old conspiracy that explains the connection between Shakespeare, the Holy Grail and some seriously sexy vampires. It turns out that the play was actually written by a master vampire name Theo Horace and it's up to Julian to recover the Grail in order to reverse the vampire's curse...If only being undead wasn't so much God-damned fun! Written by Mike Landry

A brilliant film that has successfully brought new life to Shakespeare's characters! Roesncrantz and Guildenstern are truly Undead
10 June 2010 | by ehrdupontSee all my reviews

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead is quite 'brilliant' cleverly written & directed by Jordan Galland with the exceptionally beautiful musical score by Sean Lennon which seems to breathe life and color to the story and the players ,they have successfully brought new life to Shakespeares characters , not an easy feat by any means.Everything in this film works seamlessly ,the players the direction , the musical score I have always thought 'arthouse' was the most pure and authentic of all film making, it is from here that some of the best films ever made have been born.Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead will certainly live on.If you are really really "lucky" you get the opportunity to share in something truly special such is the experience of seeing the work of a brilliant young film maker , Jordan has sealed his place in the world of film making with this iconic production ,and as he continues to write and produce other works he will join the list of outstanding film makers
