Zombie Hamlet is the story of Osric Taylor, a first-time director who finally receives funding for his dream film, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, set during the American Civil War. Short after production starts in Louisiana, though, his financier decides to back out of the film. Fortunately wealthy southern matron, Hester Beauchamp, agrees to fund the project on a reduced budget, forcing Osric to add zombies in hopes of salvaging his dream. Things are starting to look up for Osric until suddenly Hester passes away mid-shoot. Osric pretends to be Hester to cash the last check, attracting suspicion of both the local police and news reporter Shine Reynolds, thrusting Osric into hilarious situation after situation as he attempts to save Zombie Hamlet.
