365 Day Unseen Movie Marathon – Day 52 – BURKE AND HARE (2010)
Title: Burke and Hare
Directed by: John Landis
Written by: Piers Ashworth & Nick Moorcroft
Current Flickchart position: #635 of 1365 overall. My #50 film, of 66, from the year 2010.
What It’s About:
A black comedy about two 19th century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school.
It may pair Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes again after their brilliant work on Spaced, and it may also star Andy Serkis, Tim Curry and Isla Fisher, but all I could do was compare it to I Sell The Dead, and it’s sad to say that it’s just not as good or enjoyable as that film. For a comedy it’s completely unfunny.
Watch Burke and Hare because it features a really great British cast (as well as the very hot Australia Isla Fisher).
