Videos and DVDs
John Landis directs this British black-comedy horror based on the real-life exploits of Irish murderers William Burke and William Hare. In the early 19th century, Burke (Simon Pegg) and Hare (Andy Serkis) decide to exploit a lucrative gap in the market by providing Edinburgh's world-renowned medical school with fresh cadavers for its research. Their methods of procuring the bodies, however, are unconventional to say the least. Christopher Lee, Isla Fisher, Tom Wilkinson and Jenny Agutter co-star.
