The first images for Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment’s upcoming horror film I’ll Take Your Dead have been released. The film, directed by Chad Archibald (The Heretics) stars Aidan Devine (A History of Violence), Ava Preston (Shazam!), Jessica Salgueiro (Workin’ Moms) and Ari Millen (Orphan Black).
“We travelled up north to Orillia and shot this film at an abandoned farm house in the middle of the harsh Canadian winter,” said Archibald. “That was our home for a month and when we weren’t battling the elements, we were capturing this haunting story with our crazy talented cast. I’ll Take Your Dead is a genre bending film that we really wanted to do something different with. It’s a slow burn drama wrapped in a horror film that stands out against everything Black Fawn has done in the past. We really can’t wait to share this one with an audience.”
William has a simple job: he makes dead bodies disappear. 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 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 is produced by Archibad, Cody Calahan and Christopher Giroux.
