The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Burke and Hare (2011)

Starring: Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Isla Fischer
Director: John Landis

Two men take to murder in order to sell the bodies for dissection to a prestigious doctor at the prestigious Edinburgh medical school.
Takes place in the mid 1800's and based on a true story.

My Take:
The only thing really horrific is the way the characters make their money. The cast is amazing and play it perfectly with the comedy. And there is lots of it.
A nice comeback for director John Landis with a twisted take on historical events.

Rating: So Good
