The Murderers
2 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

John Anderson & George Kennedy play Jacob Grant & John Paterson, two murderous body snatchers in Victorian England who are not above murdering any "innocent bystanders" when regular grave robbing dries up. They sell the bodies to a medical doctor who needs them for his experiments in class, but the morality of subverting the law by committing these illegal acts is much debated, as fate catches up with both Grant & Paterson... Oddly ineffectual re-telling of the familiar true life story of Burke & Hare has all the right ingredients but still comes out flat. Watch "The Body Snatcher"(1945) instead, or even "Night Gallery", which did a better version of this story called 'Deliveries In The Rear'.
