Back in January, we announced that the fine folks at Black Fawn Films had revealed their next project. In continuation of their eight-picture deal with Breakthrough Entertainment – which includes films such as The Sublet, Bite, Let Her Out, Bed of the Dead and The Heretics – they’ve just finished filming for I’ll Take Your Dead.
I’ll Take Your Dead follows William (Aidan Devine) who has a simple job, he makes dead bodies disappear. This isn’t something he likes to or even wants to do, but through circumstances out of his control, his little farm house in the country has become a dumping ground for the casualties of the gang related murders in the nearby city. His daughter Gloria (Ava Preston) has become used to rough looking men dropping off corpses and is even convinced that some of them are haunting their house. After a woman’s body, is dumped at the house, William begins his meticulous process when he realizes, she’s not actually dead. As the gang activity increases, William patches the woman up and holds her against her will until he can figure out what to do with her. As they begin to develop a very unusual respect for each other, the woman’s murderers get word that she’s still alive and make plan to go finish what they started.
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 the big screen.
I’ll Take Your Dead will hit the international festival circuit this fall.
The film stars Aidan Devine (A History of Violence, Suicide Squad), Ava Preston (DC’s Shazam!, The Kennedys), Jessica Salgueiro (Mary Kills People, The Strain), and Ari Millen (Orphan Black, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan).
