This film has only just recently been completed. Toronto After Dark attendees will be treated to its first ever public screening in North America, straight after it has its World Premiere in Europe.
"I Sell the Dead" is the dark new horror comedy starring Dominic Monaghan and Ron Perlman. 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").
