HAMLET/HORATIO Frames the Story of Shakespeare’s Tragic Prince Through His Best Friend, on VOD June 1
What happens when one of history’s most enduring plays looks through the lens of someone on the sidelines? Hamlet/Horatio captures the timeless tale of corruption and vengeance through the eyes of the outsider, Horatio.
Glass House Distribution will release Hamlet/Horatio June 1 on a number of digital and cable platforms.
Hamlet/Horatio has been a 20-year collaboration between producer David Wenzel and writer David Vando. The film celebrates the power of love to transcend corruption and evil driven by Horatio’s mission to keep Hamlet’s spirit alive, even after death.
Shakespeare’s magnum opus was originally about the King of Denmark’s son, Hamlet. In the text, Hamlet is told by his father’s ghost to avenge his death and kill the new king, Hamlet’s uncle. Horatio is Hamlet’s trusted and beloved friend. Instead of telling the Hamlet story through its main character’s eyes, Hamlet/Horatio flips the notion on its head and tells the story through Horatio’s perspective.
The release of Hamlet/Horatio is the culmination of a 20-year collaboration between producer David Wenzel and writer David Vando, directed by Paul Warner.
“David Vando and I felt it was a need to introduce Hamlet/Horatio in a new concept to make it more relatable to a newer audience that might have been standoffish with Shakespeare in the past,” David Wenzel said. “We have known Paul Warner for over 20 years and was a logical choice for him to direct.”

Small Town Monsters Goes ON THE TRAIL OF BIGFOOT: THE JOURNEY June 8th on Digital
Following a wildly successful 2020 with the releases of Mark of the Bell Witch and The Mothman Legacy, Small Town Monsters has announced the release of their latest documentary, On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Journey. The Journey is the followup to the miniseries “On the Trail of Bigfoot”, and cryptid documentarian Seth Breedlove leads the Small Town Monsters team deep into the Adirondacks on the hunt for Sasquatch.
On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Journey will be available to purchase or rent on June 8 on a number of platforms from 1091 Pictures, including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and FandangoNOW.
Breedlove and his handpicked crew of adventurers and investigators headed to the Adirondacks of upstate New York for an intensive, adventure-filled week searching for Sasquatch. The team documented the trip, which included multiple days and nights in the forests around upstate New York and Western Massachusetts. Their trip was spent with Bigfoot researchers like Steve Kulls (“Monsterquest”) and Paul Bartholomew (Finding Bigfoot, Beast of Whitehall) who led them on the search for their quarry.
The Journey is directed and edited by Seth Breedlove, who produced alongside Adrienne Breedlove, and features animations and illustrations by a host of incredible artists. The Journey also presents enough fascinating evidence to make even the most ardent skeptic take a second glance.
