I Sell The Dead


The other night I watched I Sell The Dead via IFC On Demand. It stars Dominic Monaghan (Charlie from Lost) and Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy, coolest mo’fo of all time).

The movie is set in England during the 1800s, Monaghan plays Arthur Blake, a grave robber who is about to be beheaded the next day. Perlman plays a priest who is there to get his last words. Blake recounts a tale of how he and his former partner did many crazy things, such as find vampires, aliens, and zombies.

The movie is not really scary, but is pretty funny at times. The scene where they figure out if you stake the vampire, and then pull it out she comes back to life is hilarious. Also the zombie pawing Arthur’s partner from inside the cage and Arthur’s jokes about it calling him darling, again quite funny.

There is a twist at the end of the movie which was pretty predictable, but still entertaining. If you want to watch a short movie which will make you laugh, then check this one out.
