With a new year upon us, I figured it was time to finally get back to watching some entertainment that could put a smile on my face. Yes, the Steelers dominant performance today did fall into that category, but, I am sure there will be many stories written about that one. So, with that all in mind, I decided to watch a flick that I had only heard of, and had no expectations about, I Sell the Dead.
As I mentioned, I had no idea what to expect with this flick. That being said, I really did not expect to find such an enjoyable venture. While the story is quite simple, it is extremely entertaining, combining a great mix of horror and comedy that has not been seen in quite a while. The acting is solid and add just enough to the characterization to bring everything together. The cinematography and soundtrack work well enough to create a great mood and some great atmospheric moments. Yes, there is some blood and guts throughout, but mostly it is quite tame. Sure, this is not a true horror flick, but it is a very interesting film that does a great job crossing genre elements.
