I SELL THE DEAD was just recently completed and submitted to Toronto After Dark. The film so impressed our programmers it was awarded our festival’s coveted Closing Gala spot. This will be a real treat for fans as it is the first public screening of the film anywhere in North America!
I SELL THE DEAD is a deliciously dark new horror comedy starring Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS, LOST) and Ron Perlman (HELLBOY). Part period-piece supernatural tale, part buddy comedy, the film is a refreshingly original treat for cult film fans! In 18th Century England, a young graverobber, played by Monaghan, finds himself condemned to death for his crimes, with only a priest (Perlman) for company for his last night before the gallows. A hilarious tale is told of a life spent digging up and selling supernatural corpses including vampires and zombies, and the many shenanigans involved! A terrific supporting cast includes Larry Fessenden (LAST WINTER) and Angus Scrimm (PHANTASM).
