A black comedy about two nineteenth century grave robbers, who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school.
Based on the true story about the famous murderers, this movie follows the hapless exploits of William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis) as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in nineteenth century Edinburgh, Scotland, then the center of medical learning. The one thing they were short of was bodies.
