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.

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 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.
Its wit and style, however, are thoroughly modern, as is a hilarious ending that leaves the sequel door wide open. And why not?
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.
Genre fans will definitely get off on I Sell the Dead, but outsiders might be less enthusiastic.
Low-budget, grubby and gleeful, but with a nice sense of style and apparently an endless supply of dry ice. Points deducted, though, for a too-easy alien-corpse joke.
Uneven Victorian-era supernatural horror-comedy about grave-robbing.
At times predictable. At times overwrought. Most often a tad too silly.
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.
... this underworld buddy story has personality to spare. It's a zombie snack of a horror comedy: insubstantial but fun.
Capably delivers a half-dozen sub-genres in less than 88 minutes. That's just plain old fun, regardless of how much the flick cost to produce.
...a better-than-average horror comedy...
Vampires, Zombies, Aliens and Ron Perlman. Director Glenn McQuaid seems intent on force-feeding his audience a steady stream of camp with mixed results.
I Sell The Dead is the story of two grave robbers who recall their days of grave robbing before being hanged. The film is slow, and seems to take forever to reach the end. But despite this, the film is quite enjoyable and fun to watch. The actors give fine performances and this is a fine debut for Glenn Mcquaid. If you love a low budget zombie flick, pick this impressive Horror Comedy up, despite its slow pacing it's a strong film with a few memorable and funny scenes. I sell The Dead is a terrific little film that will definitely appeal to zombie fans. It's a different take on your average zombie film, and it's very well done. The acting in I Sell The Dead is decent enough for this type of film and the film in parts is fairly creative, taking into account that Horror is pch stale. The film is of course in perfect, but it manages to be pretty good and entertaining. The cast features some impressive names, including Phantasm actor Angus Schrimm and Lord Of The Rings actor Dominic Monaghan. I Sell The Dead is a not a flawless film, but is a fair enough film to consider watchable. I enjoyed it and I thought that Glenn Mcquaid did a fine job directing this zombie comedy. This film is much better than most big buhorror films that make it into theatres and is very original, which is something that lacks in todays horror films. People are afraid of trying something inventive, and I Sell The Dead is most certainly that. A very good horror comedy that at times feels like it could be better, but in the end is pretty good considering it's a low budget picture.
Haha. Well. I really had no idea what to expect from this movie, but I was very entertained. It's quite well made. I really do tend to like that subtle British humor, and this movie was all that. A funny horror flick that didn't try to get too stupid and silly.
A fun flick, nicely put together.
