Weak Body Snatcher Stuff
14 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This involves a subculture of Victorian England. Apparently, there was practically a body snatcher's union. They dug up graves and stole the dead to be passed on to medical schools for dissection. However, the bodies were supposed to be dead by violence or natural causes. A couple of really bad dudes do their own killing and then sell the bodies. We are witness to some of the murders. A young man and his disinherited wife find refuge in the home of one of these guys. He is ugly and abusive and has a mentally handicapped partner. The young man is looking for work but times are tough and even when he finds out what these guys are doing, he wants to look the other way. When it comes to self preservation, the young woman is one of the stupidest characters I've ever seen. A really weak episode of Thriller.
