After acquiring U.S. rights to Chad Archibald‘s (Bite, The Drownsman, The Heretics) revenge thriller I’ll Take Your Dead back in January, Shout! Studios have announced today that they'll be releasing the film in limited theaters and on VOD outlets on May 3rd!
In the film, "William 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 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. 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."
The film stars Aidan Devine (A History of Violence, Suicide Squad), Ava Preston (Shazam!), Jessica Algueiro ("The Strain"), and Ari Millen ("Orphan Black").
I'll Take Your Dead was written by Jayme LaForest (The Heretics, Gods of Accident).
