He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. Now he’s going to eat the rich and maybe even the poor while he’s at it. That’s because in Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood, he and his Merry Men are undead and haunting their famous forest. And it’s not a Syfy movie, either.
Here’s the synopsis for Oliver Krekel’s Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood:
This is the fictitious tale of a cursed Robin Hood who has sold his soul to a witch to stay alive. But death never sleeps, and soon Robin dies in a battle. When Marian and Little John try to bring Robin and his Merry Men back to life by using the witch’s potions, they unfortunately turn the dead to the living dead.
With the use of the potions that Marian took from the witch’s cave, she and Little John are forced to fight for their lives against their former friends and the accuracy of Robin’s bow. The pair is able to fight their way out of Sherwood Forest and find that what’s left of the Zombie Robin Hood and his remaining Zombie Merry Men cannot leave the forest. Marian and Little John decide they will scour the Earth to see if they can find a potion to save their friends but until then will leave them where they are as the “Ghosts of Sherwood”.
Thank goodness they let us know this is a fictitious tale because for a moment I was afraid this might be a docudrama.
TomCat Films is currently shopping around the film starring Martin Thom as Robin Hood, Ramona Kuen as Maid Marion, everyone’s favorite “Jason” Kane Hodder as Little John, and F/X guru Tom Savini as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Here’s the trailer for Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood. According to IMDB the movie will be in 3D for some reason.
