18th century justice has finally caught up with grave robbers Arthur Blake and Willie Grimes. With the spectre of the guillotine looming over him, young Blake confides in visiting clergyman Father Duffy, 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 are trying to pilfer.

Format: DVD
I sell the dead is a mildy amusing horror comedy at best. Dominic Monaghan (Charlie from Lost) plays a convict waiting for his execution, regaling a priest with an interest in the supernatural (Ron Perlman - Hellboy) his lifetime's worth of stories as a grave robber. The film plays out like a patchwork of stories from a grave robber, with all sorts of unusual happenings encountered, drawing on every different corner of the supernatural (Vampires, Zombies, Aliens etc).

I sell the dead is a low-budget film, with comic cross overs, often when a character is introduced it is done as the picture fades into a comic-book still, it's an intriguing technique, but does give the film a rather tacky feel to it. Dominic Monaghan's performance is mediocre, he plays the comedic parts well but seems to lack any ability to look serious and so the sombre moments are rather wasted. The film is dark and the majority of it is shot in a myriad of foggy graveyards and resultantly looks rather bland and homogenous. Ron Perlman's character is rather flat and falls short of holding any gravity.

I would reccomend this to people with an interest in the supernatural but it is not the best example of the genre and fails to provide any real sustenance.

Format: DVD
This film is supposed to be a black comedy but it just isn't funny. The human characters are a little stereotypical, the monsters are Hammer horror escapees and the slapstick doesn't work. There's nothing wrong with the production values, the cast all do a good job and the locations are fine, the soundtrack is nothing to write home about. Sadly it doesn't matter how much hard work you put in if the story just doesn't do it for you. Dominic Monaghan plays a young grave robber apprenticed to Willy Grimes and under the thrall of a menacing doctor who demands more and more bodies. One night they dig up a corpse at a crossroads that turns out to be a vampire. They pass that on to the doctor and solve that problem. They soon realise that digging up the undead is more profitable although where digging up a dead Roswell alien fits in I don't know. Eventually they have an encounter with another more violent grave robbing gang and their world comes crashing down. I din't notice this in my local cinemas so obviously I'm not the only one who thought like this. Rent it if you must.

An 18th Century convicted grave robber spends his final hours recalling the mysterious events that led to his and his mentors arrest... Supernatural happenings await.

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!.

This film had a lot going for it: a superb cast including Ron 'Hell Boy' Pearlman, Angus 'Tall Man from Phantasm' Scrimm, and Dominic 'Hobbit' Monaghan, and a great context for a story: grave robbers who discover ghouls -which are zombies with vampiric traits- and sell them as a valuable commodity. The problem was that at times I got bored. The film never really delivers on its potential nor exploits its many aforementioned assets. Moments of true drama or suspense are few and far between, gore is minimal and humor is moderate.

I wanted to know and see more about the ghouls: where do they come from? who buys them? what are the used for? All of these are only briefly touched upon in the movie. The twist is obvious very early on and the ending ultimately a bit silly and weak.

The film does have a Hammer Horror charm to it but this felt more like a Sunday evening drama than a movie.

Other than a very light sprinkling of gore, this is a childrens film; very similar in depth and tone the Goosebumps series. It was not scary or horrifying in the slightest, and was not funny either. So for a horror/comedy really does not fulfil its remit in any way.

Yes the sets were quite well done and the music score was alright, but that's really all I can say that isn't negative about it.

For a supposedly period film the accents and language used were completely out of place. There is something that is, I can only assume, supposed to be a plot twist, the details of this are quite apparent from the beginning.

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.
