I should hate it. By all that is right in films this should go straight to the bottom of the pile. Take Hamlet and then throw in a right royal splash of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Film it on a budget so small that micro seems too big a description and then you have…
Actually you have something that, as long as you know it’s going to be a ‘B’ movie, actually works rather well. Shot in Black and White (bar a couple of colour scenes) and lifting the Hamlet story in a completely recognisable way we have…

Ophelia bugged – but I am guessing that she was meant to. However there were moments that were genuinely funny. The self-effacing voice-overs and intertitles showed filmmakers who knew just how cheeky they were being.
