Rosencrantz, Guildenstern and King Hamlet might be dead – but Putin’s the ghost in everybody’s room

For the paranoia industry, the spectre of Vladimir Putin is the gift that keeps on giving. Theres rarely a situation these days in which many media elements won’t invoke the Russian president’s name.

Shakespeare wasn’t exactly a horror writer, but the bard was rather fond of using ghosts as plot devices. Arguably the most famous is ‘King Hamlet,’ the eponymous hero’s late father.
