19th century justice has finally caught up to grave robbers Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) and Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden). With the specter of the guillotine looming over him, young Blake confides in visiting clergyman Father Duffy (Ron Perlman), recounting fifteen years of adventure in the resurrection trade. His tale leads from humble beginnings as a young boy stealing trinkets from corpses, to a partnership with seasoned ghoul Willie Grimes as they hunt creatures unwilling to accept their place in the ground. The colourful and peculiar history of Grimes and Blake is one filled with adventure, horror, and vicious rivalries that threaten to put all involved in the very graves they re trying to pilfer.

I watched this film knowing very little about it, and as of succumbing to the majority of so-called horror/comedies of late was not expecting too much from it either.
Clique as this may sound, from the very beginning I was hooked, this is a period drama in parody form. It manages to pull off the rare feat of actually doing what it says on the tin. It's funny and creepy at the same time.
The sets are stunning, the acting is fine and fluid, and the story line is refreshingly different.
People will either love this or hate it, though I must say, if you are a fan of films like "Evil Dead" "Cemetery Man" "Sleepy Hollow" or especially Peter Jackson's "Braindead"," The Frighteners", I should imagine you'll love this!
Sure it has some trivial plot-holes, and maybe a couple of unnecessary moments, but it's a great attempt at bringing back the classics by way of adding something new.
For the horror buffs there's Angus Scrimm (The Tall Man of "Phantasm" fame) in the cast list, also Ron Perlman in his best Irish accent to date, and Larry Fessenden of "Session 9" who steals the show. The rest of the cast play it nicely OTT and Dominic Monaghan is a decent lead with plenty of enthusiasm.
The Homage to iconic horror films is so nice to see, there's a hint of Frankenstein and Dracula, and a scene that's so close to the "Evil Dead" you'll wonder just what you are watching. What an effort by all involved.
This is a low budget production to be admired, and am sure it (and Writer/Director Glenn McQuaid) will gain the credit once established thoroughly.
If you're looking for a silly supernatural dark comedy that's really fun, watch this!.
I Sell the Dead is loosely based on the Burke and Hare story of grave robbing, and Monaghan is giving his last confessions as he is about to face the gullotine. The man listening is played by Ron Perlman, not quite sure how this production lured Perlman in but they did. He does a competent job with his fake Irish accent. So Monaghan tells his story however the script is so weak that during re telling his grave robbing adventures it seems like a scene can't go by without him having flashbacks within a flashback!
The grave robbing story is quickly ditched for Aliens, Vampires and Zombies and the whole thing just comes across as contrived. Larry Fessenden who has an uncanny ability to star in very average horrors isn't too bad here, at least he seems to recongnise the part he is playing, and looks like a genuine Oliver Twist character. Angus Scrimm he of the Phantasm movies also stars, but don't get too excited he is here for no more than 5 minutes.
The set up for this movie was spot on just plainly bad executed and the finale seems like a slap in the face. There's far worse out there, but much more was expected.
There's one particularly overly gory bit where a guy gets his throat cut, which doesn't quite fit in with the mood of the rest of the film, but overall it's a good film, well worth a watch if you don't want anything too heavy.
It's like going through York Dungeons rather than staying overnight in the Amityville House.
Marketed as a comedy/horror it tries hard with some fresh ideas but fails both as a comedy and as a horror, the script and performances aren't funny, and there's not enough blood n guts for the gorehounds. An ok flick nothing more.
If you a trying to bridge the gap between a childrens campfire tale and a mild horror film then this might be for you. I, however, found it vacuous and uninteresting.
It bears a lot more in common with Home Alone that Shaun of the Dead as the main duo spend most of their time shouting at the top of their lungs when anything `scary' happens.
Monagan and Perlman mustn't come cheap as all the sets are half-arsed, the direction doing nothing to disguise the act, using a fog-machine to cover up them up, even scenes shot in the middle of the day. The cut corners are obvious when entire montage about midway through the film's done entirely against a blue screen for no clear reason apart from having evidence of yet another bad idea in the finished reel.
A waste of time for everyone involve, I'm talking career lows here. Monagan just came off Lost and FlashForward and Perlman's got a good gig with Sons Of Anarchy and Hellboy, it boggles the mind to see them wasting time with a stillborn turd like this. How fitting is the film's acronym, I STD? Instead of releasing direct to DVD the executive should have considered literally burying this one.

I was skeptical of this film from the synopsis, but I gave it a watch and loved it! It has some dark humour, and the story isn't bad.
Give it a chance.

I'd read a few reviews of this film and thought it sounded like a good comedy / horror hybrid in a similar vein perhaps to American Werewolf in London or Shaun of the Dead. Read morePublished on 6 Dec. 2010 by S. Rowland
