Romeo & Juliet vs. The Living Dead and Romancing the Bard: A Movie Review

Director: Ryan Denmark.

Writers: Ryan Denmark, Jason Witter, and William Shakespeare (original play).

Cast: Hannah Kauffmann, Jason Witter, Mark Chavez, Kate Schroeder, Reuben Finkelstein, and Kevin R Elder.

What strangeness doth producer/writer Jason Witter and director Ryan Denmark bring? And how do they reinterpret a classic play for a zombie generation? In what gets created, Romeo & Juliet vs. the Living Dead defies every expectation for a zombie film that aspires to be very literary. These two filmmakers have made a very unique product that can easily rank up there with author Seth Grahame-Smith’s "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Their passion for this bard's work is easily apparent, but their love for the classic zombie film is just as equally visible.

The team behind this movie put together an amazing product that will satisfy certain types of audiences. For those looking for spectacular makeup effects, that will not be found here.

Rating: 5 out of 10

Verily! Why hast thy mind become split, how dost this moving image picture confuse thee into giving it a 1 star review for it's inherent crappiness, yet boldly awarding ye director a 10 for imagination and the most noble intentions? Verily! Come with me now to fair Verona, lest I give up this Shakespearean dialogue and get to ye point! Forsooth!

'Romero and Juliet v.s. The Living Dead' is admittedly a very cool idea, at least as far as titles go. When I first read about it I thought; wow, two star-crossed lovers fighting off zombies? Could be good! Then I saw the trailer, which actually led to my skipping this at the Edinburgh Film Festival; it looked to me like a Trauma film shot on digital by some teenagers
