It was announced today that Shout! Studios has acquired U.S. rights to Chad Archibald‘s (Bite, The Drownsman, The Heretics) revenge thriller I’ll Take Your Dead and plans to release on various platforms later this year.
In the film, “William has a simple job: he makes dead bodies disappear. Through circumstances out of his control, his little farmhouse in the country has become a dumping ground for the casualties of the gang-related murders in the nearby city. His daughter Gloria has become used to the rough looking men dropping off corpses and is even convinced that some of them haunt their house. After a woman’s body is dumped at the house, William begins his meticulous process when he realizes that she’s not actually dead. As the gang activity increases, William patches up the woman and holds her against her will until he can figure out what to do with her. As they begin to develop an unusual respect for each other, the woman’s murderers get word that she’s still alive and make a plan to finish what they started.”
I’ll Take Your Dead stars Aidan Devine (A History of Violence, Suicide Squad, Don’t Say A Word), Ava Preston (DC’s Shazam!, The Odd Squad, The Kennedys), Toronto International Film Festival’s 2018 Rising Star Jessica Salgueiro (Workin’ Moms, Mary Kills People, The Strain), and Canadian Screen Award Winner Ari Millen (Orphan Black, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, Rupture).
Director Chad Archibald (Bite, The Drownsman, The Heretics) has teamed up once again with writer Jayme LaForest (Bite, The Heretics) to bring this tale of unnerving horror to audiences.
