Finally. But hey, at least two movies about best friends who decide to fuck each other got released this year. Thankfully, IFC has stepped in and picked up John Landis' Burke and Hare for distribution. No word on a release date yet, however.

For those unfamiliar with the misdeeds of Burke and Hare, which were known as the West Port Murders -- These crimes were perpetrated in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1827 and 1828. The killings were attributed to Irish immigrants William Burke and William Hare, who sold the corpses of their seventeen victims to the Edinburgh Medical College for dissection.
