Zombie or not zombie? That is the question.

Denmark is plagued with zombies led by Hamlet's uncle/step-father, the current king of Denmark.

When Hamlet learns from his zombified father the plot of his uncle - a plan to turn Denmark into a land of the undead - Hamlet knows he must stop him! Or not. If he could only be sure...

A gruesomely comic adaptation of the Shakespeare's classic tragedy, Hamlet, Zombie Killer of Denmark blends the original text with new, zombified dialogue, with much of the new text written in the iambic tradition of Shakespeare.
