I’ll Take Your Dead Synopsis

William (Aidan Devine, Wolfcop) has a simple job: he makes dead bodies disappear. His country farm house has become a dumping ground
for gang related casualties while his daughter Gloria (Ava Preston, Critters Attack!) is convinced that some of them haunt their home. After
a woman’s body (Jess Salgueiro, Letterkenny, The Boys) is dropped off on their doorstep, William realizes that she’s not actually dead. As he
tries to figure out what to do next, the woman’s assailants get word that she’s still alive and make a plan to finish what they started.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
