New Burke and Hare Trailer

Burke And Hare is John Landis’ story of Edinburgh’s famous bodysnatchers starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis. As you can see from this full length trailer, we can expect at least as much black humour as gory horror. Burke (Pegg) and Hare (Serkis) were immigrants to Scotland from Northern Ireland who in the 1820s, got into the business of selling corpses to Edinburgh medical schools. The only problem with such enterprising activity was that they were involved in grave robbing and then murder to obtain the cadavers.
