Macbeth Rearisen is the darkly comic sequel to William Shakespeare’s original Scottish play. Lavishly created in Elizabethan pentameter, this hilarious tragi-comedy fuses authentic Shakespearean drama with the best of B-grade schlock horror movies. Continuing on directly from where Macbeth leaves off, the new King Malcolm discovers that all is not well is the state of Scotland. Indeed, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and their legions of undead minions are on the march and heading towards a confrontation that will have Shakespeare rolling in his grave, that is, provided he can stay dead!
