Time Out NY, IGN and Popmatters review I Sell The Dead

A fresh, darkly funny blend of crime [graverobbing, to be precise] and supernatural hijinks ... that delivers an offbeat but carefully balanced mix of shocks, homages and uneasy chuckles.

DarkDogDaze review

"A jauntily gothic period spook story.
smart, gruesome and inventive enough to more than please niche genre fans who are likely to spread the word to fellow admirers of gallows humor."
