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.

General Comments:
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).

Rating:  5.5/10
