Bloody-Disgusting recently got the juice on some interesting trailer news; they received the exclusive trailer for “I Sell the Dead”, a period zombie film starring Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings).
“I Sell The Dead” is the story of two grave robbers, Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) and Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden), whose epic story of robbing graves is told by Arthur to a priest (Ron Perlman) as Arthur prepares to face execution.
The film is directed by Glenn McQuaid based on his short film called the “The Resurrection Apprentice” and was funded by Glass Eye Pix (a low budget horror genre label run by horror maestro Larry Fessenden). The film co-stars Larry Fessenden, Ron Perlman, & Angus Scrimm.
What makes this trailer so unique is its style. From the opening clips we are thrown into another world. The costumes look stellar, the cast looks amazing, and the sets are unbelievable, especially since this film had a budget of less then five million dollars. There’s also an arthouse quality about this film that sets it apart from so many indie zombie films being released today. We’re given shots of people doing abnormal things and its general style. All I can say is that I’m looking forward to it whether it’s released straight-to-DVD or theatrically… once it’s out I’ll be the first one there.
No release date has been set. Continue reading to check out the film’s trailer…
