Consensus: A horror comedy that's almost as chilling as it is funny, I Sell the Dead relies on its dark humor and offbeat charm to overcome its low budget shortcomings.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

The budget was clearly minuscule, but writer/director Glenn McQuaid's deft dialogue, strong characters and clever plotting attracted some impressive acting talent.

Its wit and style, however, are thoroughly modern, as is a hilarious ending that leaves the sequel door wide open. And why not?

Uneven Victorian-era supernatural horror-comedy about grave-robbing.

If it's not actually a good movie, on some level you have to admire the chutzpah of a film set in 1850s Ireland but shot on Staten Island.

The year's most deliriously heavy title comes attached to a cheeky Victorian-era horror-comedy about grave-robbing -- and it's not just human corpses being raided here.

At times predictable. At times overwrought. Most often a tad too silly.

The worst fault visually, probably intended as a charm against the spell of low-budget-itis, is relentless darkness. Pervasive shadows in most shots do not evoke atmosphere, but eye strain.

Droll perfs, diverting f/x and handsome B-pic atmospherics ensure a good time for horror fans with a memory past last weekend's slasher remake.

This episodic horror-comedy...doesn't quite hold together for its entire length, but its amiable approach will win you over with its good intentions.

Vampires, Zombies, Aliens and Ron Perlman. Director Glenn McQuaid seems intent on force-feeding his audience a steady stream of camp with mixed results.

For the lost (lol, Lost) member of Oasis and/or Blur, Dominic Monaghan easily made this movie for me. His comedic timing made otherwise-mediocre comedic moments… More
