In the movie, security for the illegal medical experiments is provided by two supposed police officers named Hare and Burke. In reality, William Hare and William Burke were two men in the business of supplying human cadavers to medical schools in 1820s Edinburgh - until it was learned that the ones they hadn't stolen from graveyards, they had murdered themselves.

Arriving in The Room Dr. Luthan's lips clearly moves, but the words "...if someone's there listening" can be heard seconds later. See more »
This film surprised me with Gene Hackman as a mad doctor out of control with himself, using human bodies for experiments very much like the old Boris Karloff pictures. David Morse(TV "Hack" star)was the guardian of Gene Hackman and his horror hospital. Paul Guilfoyle(TV actor CSI) a doctor who betrays Hugh Grant. Grant gets the run -around throughout the entire picture. He winds up running down the tracks of Grand Central station. This film has a great cast of actors and the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat. Hackman and Morse outshine Hugh Grant by a long shot.
