Larry Fessenden Highlighted in Upcoming ArcLight Presents Slamdance Cinema Club

Fessenden is, of course, a genre favorite. He’s a multi-talented horror movie maker. He’s an actor/director/producer as well as a kick-ass writer and cinematographer. He will be featured in two upcoming Slamdance Cinema Club Screenings of his films: I Sell the Dead, in which he’s an actor, on October 18 and Wendigo, which Fessenden wrote and directed, on October 19. The screenings will be held at Arclight Cinema, Hollywood, California. The details for each screening are below.

I Sell the Dead
Director: Glenn McQuaid

Nineteenth century justice has finally caught up to graverobbers Arthur Blake and Willie Grimes. With the specter of the guillotine looming over him, young Blake confides in visiting clergyman Father Duffy, recounting 15 years of adventure in the resurrection trade. His tale leads from humble beginnings as a young boy stealing trinkets from corpses to a partnership with seasoned ghoul Willie Grime, as they hunt creatures unwilling to accept their place in the ground. The colorful and peculiar history of Grimes and Blake is one filled with adventure, horror, and vicious rivalries that threaten to put all involved in the very graves they’re trying to pilfer. Never trust a corpse.

Director: Larry Fessenden

A blue Volvo makes its way through the fading light this chilly winter evening in Upstate New York. Kim, George, and their eight-year-old son, Miles, are city dwellers stealing a weekend away at a friend’s country farmhouse. But a fluke accident sets off a chain of events that alters their lives forever and conjures up the ferocious spirit of the Wendigo, a Native American myth made manifest in Miles’ imagination.
