VOD Dates, IFC Trailer for ‘Burke & Hare’

An update to the announcement that IFC Films has acquired John Landis’ weak horror comedy Burke & Hare (review) for limited release on September 9. We’ve also learned that it will open on VOD August 5, while we’ve also been supplied with the official IFC trailer.

‘Burke & Hare’ is a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis). These two Irish entrepreneurs discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.
