Never Say Macbeth


Never Say Macbeth, is a B-Grade comedy, which I had very low expectations for, so when I sat down to view this little gem, I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

This film tells the story of Danny Teller, a high school science teacher, who travels across country to get his girlfriend back and ends up running into all sorts of mayhem, when he accidentally ends up in a play, which is well known for being cursed and the name of it should never be said out loud. But Danny, being a man of science and not believing in the curse, says it anyway.

who end up possessing some of the cast so Danny must team up with a pretty young actress named Tamra and a Star Wars obsessed stage manager named Jeni, which rhymes with Jedi and spends the entire film, dressed up like Princess Leia and they must break the curse in time to ensure that the show goes on.

The acting in the film can only be described as over acting and the effects and storyline may be a little cheesy at the best of times, but it all actually works together to add to the whole campiness and fun of the film and is definitely one to see for everyone, especially those who love the theatre.



Never Say Macbeth is not rated and would be suitable for the whole family to enjoy, though some of the ghosts may be a little frightening to very young viewers and was released in 2008 on DVD.
