New On DVD: Zombie Hamlet
New this week from Level 33 is Zombie Hamlet, directed by John Murlowski and starring Travis Wester, Jason Mewes, Shelly Long, Vanessa Evigan, John Amos, Brandan Coughlin, Emmalee Wilson, and June Lockhart.
"First-time director Osric Taylor finally manages to get his dream film financed, Shakespeare's HAMLET -- set against the epic backdrop of the American Civil War. He heads to a small town in Louisiana to start filming when production funding suddenly dries up. Osric agrees to take up southern matron Hester Beauchamp's offer to finance his movie as long as he throws some zombies in the film to attract a wider audience. When Hester suddenly dies mid-shoot, and with the local sheriff and ambitious news reporter Shine Reynolds hot on is trail, Osric is thrust into precarious and hilarious situations in a desperate effort to keep ZOMBIE HAMLET alive."
