Summoned home from university, young Prince Hamlet discovers to his horror that his father is dead and that his mother has married his father’s brother, Claudius.

In a ghostly appearance to his son, old Hamlet accuses Claudius of his murder and in urging Hamlet to vengeance, sets in motion a train of devastating events that destroys both family and state.

Using a ‘Film Noir’ production style to reflect an atmosphere of fatalism and menace, this carefully cut version of Shakespeare’s searing tragedy retains all the essential elements of a tense psychological thriller.
