Storyline

Danny Teller, a high school science teacher, shows up at auditions for Macbeth trying to get his girlfriend back. But the director mistakes Danny's story of love for a passionate acting monologue, and casts him as Witch #1. More comfortable with spacecraft than stagecraft, Danny struggles with rehearsals, and incurs the wrath of the cast when he breaks the cardinal rule of acting by saying "Macbeth" in the theatre. That's when things get weird. Lights fall, fruit floats, and freaky ghosts start singing show tunes. Danny teams up with a new-age actress, a tough Italian self-help guru, and a sci-fi obsessed stage manager to save the actors and his ex-girlfriend from the curse of Macbeth. Written by Anonymous

30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a great time watching this film. It's thoroughly energetic and funny with a cast of gifted unknowns. The ghost effects come off great, despite the indie budget limitations. My wife caught this at a festival and loved it. Finally, it made its way to DVD, so I picked up a copy and saw for myself — and loved it. I haven't really been a part of many theatrical productions but the clever writing keeps you so engaged that you can get as much out of it as an insider. But I imagine anyone with a theater background will get even more of a kick out of it. It really makes me want to check out Hamlet 2. Hopefully it will be as fun as this one.
