Written By: Tuesday, January 30th 2018

A farm west of Orillia has been a house of horrors for the last month.

A crew from Black Fawn Films is almost finished using the location for a production called “I’ll Take Your Dead”.
Director-Producer Chad Archibald describes the film as a crime thriller, mixed with the paranormal. He adds the Orillia area is perfect for film shoots.

“We came up here, and we met the owner of the house, he was so amazing. He let us come into this place and he’s been so flexible with us. It’s a small town but it’s somewhere that still has everything. It’s big enough to actually support film production.”

According to a news release from Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, “I’ll Take Your Dead” follows William (Aidan Devine) who 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 (Ava Preston) 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.

The film is expected to hit festivals this summer and could be in theaters late this year or early next.
