From John Landis, the director of Animal House, The Blues Brothers, Trading Places and Coming To America, a dark comedy/thriller about the unfortunate denizens of 19th century Edinburgh, in a setting rife with murder, theft, prostitution, corpse snatching, experimental medicine.

A comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis).
