The Flesh and the Fiends

Type: New Blu-Ray

In early-19th-century Edinburgh, respected medical professor Robert Knox (Peter Cushing) had little regard for the laws capping the number of cadavers available for his students' use. Unfortunately, his willful blind eye towards grave-robbing miscreants William Burke (George Rose) and William Hare (Donald Pleasence), and their murderous means of keeping up supply, would foster terror and tragedy. Hammer-style, fact-based gothic chiller co-stars June Laverick, Billie Whitelaw. 95 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English; 74 min. "The Fiendish Ghouls" edit; audio commentary; theatrical trailers. Two-disc set.
