Burke and Hare

1972

Vernon Sewell
Director

Tale of Burke and Hare, suppliers of cadavers to the medical community, who start creating their own supply.

Bizarre horror-comic that seems to want to be Confessions of an Edinburgh Medical student as well as a case study of the nefarious duo. Great cast somewhat adrift in a film that has an identity crisis and also chickens out at the end. Wildly inappropriate score by The Scaffold.
