Check out Dominic Monaghan in period grave-robbing flick, I SELL THE DEAD!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I've posted on this flick before, back when it was announced. It's something interesting to me. Looks to be a period grave-robbing comedy/horror flick starring Dom Monaghan, Larry Fessenden, Ron Perlman and Angus Scrimm (as my grandfather, Dr. Vernon Quint). The flick's about a pair of young grave-robbers (Monaghan and Fessenden) who dig up corpses for the nefarious and mysterious purposes of an aristocratic doctor (guessing it's gramps). I really hope the movie lives up to the fun premise. We got the first pictures from the production, which began shooting last week. So give a look below! Enjoy!

    Grave robbing comedies? Yep, pack the kids up. We got a movie to go see.

    Looks eeeeenteresting...

    by Ribbons

    ...this is gonna sounds goofy, but I almost feel like I'm cheering for Dom to do well after his character's arc on "Lost." Potentially interesting premise, so hopefully it'll be worth seeing.

    'cause nothing says "fun premise" like grave-robbing

    by Zardoz

    Good luck on the movie career, Dom! (seriously) We'll miss Charlie on Lost, but hopefully we'll see you in some flashbacks next season...

  • May 30, 2007, 3:07 a.m. CST

    so Charlie died for THIS?

    by newc0253

    just kidding, it looks fine.

    said it before...

    by BadMrWonka

    this sounds a LOT like "the body snatcher" from 1945 with Bela lugosi and Boris Karloff...very creepy film, very similar premise. worth checking out.

    The Body Snatcher

    by evil mystical ninja

    Sounds similar to that film but also to the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's inspiration for his short story of The Body Snatcher... Burke and Hare dug up and sold dead bodies, then started murdering and selling dead bodies... <p> Then they got caught - 16th victim I think? One of them made a deal with the judge so they got off whilst the other was hung. Shame.

    Some of us not seen Lost yet, you dick

    dick, dick, dickity dick-head

    Wonder if the movie will be released in Smellovision

    by Yeti

    Nothing like the smell of decaying flesh and BRAAAAAAAAAAAAINS to go with cheese covered tacos at the movies. Yumyumyumyumyumyumyum...

    Who hasn't seen Lost finale yet, Col. Tigh?

    by Zardoz

    Seriously, where are you? And if you hadn't been spoiled about the episode until now, how did you avoid finding out? Is your cave comfy? (I kid, I kid!) But honestly, I would avoid reading ANY of the talkbacks on this site if you really want to remain pure about Lost. (and what are you waiting for? Go and watch it on right now! Go on, shoo!)

  • May 30, 2007, 6:55 a.m. CST

    this looks great

    by WolfmanNards

    it looks like a grave robbing comedy. thats awesome

  • May 30, 2007, 7:43 a.m. CST

    Larry Fessenden...

    by Mosquito March

    ...makes horrible fucking movies. He's apparently not directing this one, but he's producing/starring, so his Nicholson-wannabe stink will be all over it.

    who haven't seen Lost third season finale...?

    by Prometeo

    Well... how about 95% of the planet? The fact that some of us (impatient as we are) living in other countries, have torrented the eps instead of waiting perhaps a year to see them doesn't make them... lets say... widely spread information. Now, I'm not saying 'keep quiet' a whole year... but at least don't divulge that info on a not directly related talkback, specially not in the subject line, for a prudent 3 to 6 months, perhaps?

  • May 30, 2007, 10:39 a.m. CST

    so all those predictions and near misses

    by oisin5199

    including the statement - "Charlie, you're going to die" half a season ago wasn't a dead giveaway?

  • May 30, 2007, 11:43 a.m. CST

    Looks great!

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    Dominic is a great actor -- and LOST's loss will be the big screen's gain! Good luck, Charlie, er, Dominic!

  • May 30, 2007, 11:43 a.m. CST

    It's a remake...sorta (seriously!)

    by bgart13

    Seems likely based on the true story of Burke & Hare, and how they sold bodies to Dr. Knox. In the 50's, there was a film called "The Flesh & The Fiends" starring Peter Cushing, Donald Pleasance, and Billie Whitelaw (directed by John Gilling, too!). A creepy little film. Even Donald Pleasance's character wore a tophat just like that fellow up above.

    Easy on Col. Tigh, Zardoz...

    by Abin Sur

    He doesn't know that Starbuck died yet either...

  • May 30, 2007, 1:29 p.m. CST

    Looks like we know why Charlie died now

    Larry Fessenden

    by Bibo

    I wrote a sketch and needed a mildly funny name for a Joe-everyguy type and came up with Larry Fessenden. I had never heard of the real dude. Then somebody linked me to his IMDB page. (He sure doesn't look like a Joe every-guy.) Now I tell people it's an homage.

    Not another period grave-robbing comedy/horror flick

    by BannedOnTheRun

    At least there aren't CG penguins in it... or are there?

    G & S FX is doing the makeup

    by lghtanddrk

    G & S FX are working on doing some of the special FX makeup. They did most of the zombies on Shadow: Dead Riot. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of some test makeup pics for I Sell the Dead and I can say without a doubt that their stuff kicks ass.

    I feel suitably chastised

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    I wuz saving them up. Got the last 5 eps to watch in a row. However you were right, Charlie was on death premonitions. It was bound to go wrong from there.
