Worth Watching - March 19: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead Trailer
I really don't know what this movie is… and even after watching the trailer, I still don't know what it is. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead is a horror, comedy, and Shakespeare masterpiece all crammed into one, I guess. This is up-and-coming filmmaker Jordan Galland's debut feature film and it stars Jake Hoffman, Devon Aoki, John Ventimiglia, Kris Lemche and Ralph Macchio. Those curious enough to check it out may actually find something quite unique within. While I won't say it's a guaranteed hit, it does look like it has some promise and is worth watching.
Thanks to our friends at ShockTillYouDrop.com for launching the trailer and introducing us to yet another indie film we have to somehow see this year.
Watch the trailer for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead:
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.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead is both written and directed by indie filmmaker Jordan Galland, who has directed a few shorts previously and is making his feature film debut. The film doesn't have a release date set nor even a distributor, so potential buyers take note! If you're just a movie-goer, then hold out, I'm sure it'll start playing film festivals soon.
