Storyline

Julian Marsh is an out of work ladies' man who lands a job directing a bizarre adaptation of Hamlet. After casting his best friend and his ex-girlfriend in the show, Julian finds himself in the middle of a two thousand year old conspiracy that explains the connection between Shakespeare, the Holy Grail and some seriously sexy vampires. It turns out that the play was actually written by a master vampire name Theo Horace and it's up to Julian to recover the Grail in order to reverse the vampire's curse...If only being undead wasn't so much God-damned fun! Written by Mike Landry

Below the line IFP delivers impressively
11 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dark theater Off-Off Broadway NYC, a mysterious theater owner and an out-of-work stage director deliver giggles galore. With a soundtrack that makes one feel that Sean Lennon has finally found his groove. Musican Jordan Galland directs and stars Jake Hoffman, Devon Aoki,Kris Lemche, and John Ventimiglia as the mysterious vampire theater owner. Along with a wonderful performance by Ralph Macchio.

Brilliant low-budget horror-comedy a must see for anyone who loves indie films ! The script seems amateurish at times as does the acting of the supporting characters (not the above mentioned but Carlos Velazquez and Mike Landry should keep their day jobs), but this director really brings it home. Filming on a shoestring is an difficult journey to take, but all the great directors begin that way. The sets are functional and used masterfully to bring the story along I cannot wait to see something mainstream by this young man
