(Poster for the movie I SELL THE DEAD)
We just posted up our coverage for the movie I SELL THE DEAD. According to
Fangoria, Production is well underway on the offbeat horror film starring Dominic
(LOST) Monaghan and Larry Fessenden as a pair of 18th-century graverobbers.
Written and directed by Glenn McQuaid in his feature directorial debut with Peter
Phok also serving as a producer, DEAD also features appearances by PHANTASM
fav Angus Scrimm and Ron Perlman, who will join the production after wrapping his
work on HELLBOY 2 this fall. I SELL THE DEAD picks up on some of the characters
and settings from McQuaid’s 2005 short film THE RESURRECTION APPRENTICE, in
which would-be graverobber Arthur Blake gets shown the ropes by new mentor
Willie Grimes. The feature’s story is told from the point of view of the adult Arthur
(Monaghan), looking back at his graverobbing career with Willie (Fessenden).

“It’s a buddy movie, in a way,” says McQuaid, “with shades of Abbott and
Costello, about these two guys making their way through this murky
underworld.”
Perlman will play a priest who visits Arthur just before his execution
to hear about his questionable past, while Scrimm appears in a couple of
memorable scenes as Dr. Vernon Quint. “My character is an English physician in
this Irish city who buys the corpses that the graverobbers exhume,” Scrimm
explains. “I believe he’s English because I told Peter [Phok] that I didn’t think I
could do a really convincing Irish dialect. I also play the violin in this film, so I had
to take violin lessons, and taking dialect lessons at the same time might have
been a bit time-consuming!Written and directed by Glenn McQuaid, the film stars
Dominic Monaghan, Ron Perlman, Angus Scrimm, Larry Fessenden, Brenda Cooney,
Haidyn Harvey, Daniel Manche, Joel Garland and John Speredakos.
