Jordan Galland’s horror comedy Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead has gotten itself a new one-sheet and a limited theatrical release date from Indican Pictures – You’ll now find it in some theatres on May 21st instead of the April date that was previously announced.
Living in the back room of his father’s doctor’s office, broke, frustrated ladies man Julian (Jake Hoffman) scores his big break when he lands the job directing an off-Broadway version of Hamlet. Except it’s a bizarre adaptation written by a pale Romanian impresario named Theo (John Ventimiglia), who is actually a master vampire! Theo hopes to lure the real Hamlet (Kris Lemche) out of hiding so the two can end a centuries long feud over Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Meanwhile, Julian pines for his ex-girlfriend, Anna (Devon Aoki), who is dating mobster Bobby Bianchi (Ralph Macchio), who’s intent on creating the next great invention. Add into the mix a dimwitted detective (Jeremy Sisto), the Holy Grail, the Rosicrucian Society, a bunch of sexy vamps, God, and a score by Sean Lennon; and you’ve got the perfect mix of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Terry Gilliam, Dude Where’s My Car, and Woody Allen all in one fantastic film!
