31 Days of Horror 2014 – Day 3

31 Days of Horror Day 3I Sell the Dead (2008) is writer and director Glenn McQuaid’s throwback love letter to Universal and Hammer gothic-horror films.  Starring Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings and Lost fame as Arthur Blake, director/actor Larry Fessenden as Willie Grimes and the always welcome Ron Perlman, I Sell the Dead follows the exploits of a pair of bumbling grave robbers whose profession takes a turn for the weird when the dead stop staying dead.  Featuring flickering candle and lantern light, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates and decrepit cemeteries, I Sell the Dead wears its gothic-horror pedigree on its sleeve.  Served up with equal parts humor the film has become a favorite around the Jack’s Attic house and is highly recommended.
