Never Saw Never Say Macbeth

Never Say Macbeth. Dir. Christopher J. Prouty. Perf. Tammy Caplan, John Combs, and Scott Conte. 2007. Vanguard Cinema, 2008.

I have never seen this film, but I intend to, even though it doesn't look like the best derivative ever made. The primary reason to see it is that it's available for free viewing until August 3!

Another reason for seeing it is that it's about the Macbeth Curse—and that's always good for laughs. At least, if Slings & Arrows is any indication, it is.

Try it out, and, if you get there before I do, let me know something about it.

Note:  I have now seen it! Read about it here.
