Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis star in this reworking of the tale of two notorious grave robbers freelancing for the Edinburgh Medical College.

A black comedy based on a true story it follows the hapless exploits of William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis) two Irish entrepreneurs who regularly deal with the dead. Their business is providing cadavers for the Edinburgh Medical School by any means possible. Dabbling in grave digging and the odd murder or two, their shocking deeds are what keep the money coming in, as they discover the real value of the human dead body.

With cameo appearances from Bill Bailey, Reece Shearsmith, Tim Curry, Ronnie Corbett, Stephen Merchant, Paul Whitehouse and Michael Winner, this dark grisly comedy should not disappoint.
