What You Need To Know:

HAMLET’S GHOST tells the story of a stage actor named Judge who finds himself going back and forth in time. It opens with him in the 1920s being shot by a man. Jump to the present, where the actor’s performing HAMLET in a Los Angeles theater. He starts having flashbacks of memories from a prior life or the distant past. A car crash sends Judge to a very strange hospital, where a doctor psychically manipulates him. As Judge’s time travel increases, with the strange doctor lurking around, Judge asks a friend, an expert in paranormal activity, to help him unravel the problem. Eventually, he realizes that to save his life, he must deal with his paranormal past.

HAMLET’S GHOST is too occult for being of Christian faith and values. It makes a logical case for paranormal activity, but this makes it much more dangerous, especially people with a propensity toward occultism. That said, the movie is well directed and acted, despite its low budget. There are a few silly scenes common to low budget productions, but otherwise HAMLET’S GHOST is well made but unacceptable viewing for Christian families.

More Detail:

HAMLET’S GHOST tells the story of a stage actor with the name of Judge who finds himself going back and forth in time to deal with ghosts and solve the plot problem.

The movie opens with the actor back in the 1920s being chased by an African American man and shot. Jump to the present, where the actor’s performing HAMLET in a theater in Los Angeles. He starts to have flashbacks of memories from a prior life or the distant past. After a successful performance, Judge is driving his brother’s girlfriend home when a car runs a light and crashes into them, killing the girl and sending Judge to a very strange hospital, where a doctor psychically manipulates him.

As Judge’s time travel increases, with the strange doctor lurking in the audience and behind the scenes, Judge asks a friend, an expert in paranormal activity, to help him unravel the problem.

Judge goes back to the Deep South to a rundown playhouse and suddenly finds himself performing in a historic theater just before the murder. Eventually, he realizes that to save his life, he must deal with his paranormal past.

HAMLET’S GHOST is too occult for people set free by real faith. It makes a logical case for paranormal activity, but this makes it much more dangerous, especially people with a propensity toward occultism.

That said, the movie is well directed and acted, despite its low budget. There are a few silly scenes common to low budget productions, but otherwise HAMLET’S GHOST is well made but unacceptable viewing for people of faith and values.
