Ron 'Hellboy' Perlman stars in this horror comedy about two 18th century grave robbers who hunt down the roaming undead. As a young boy, Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) raided coffins looking for jewellery to sell for food. From these humble beginnings, he quickly progressed to full-blown ghoulhood, aided and abetted by his mentor Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden). But the good life soon disappears when Arthur is arrested by the towering presence of clergyman Father Duffy (Perlman) and threatened with a date with the guillotine. Now, spurred on by the promise of an endless supply of whiskey (and a sentimental attachment to his head), Arthur recounts his gory story to his captor.
