November 29, 2011 Landis, the master comic talent behind Animal House and An American Werewolf in London, falters with this rusty comeback, his first feature since 1998.Read in Source
June 22, 2013 Landis is too out of practice. I'm not sure 1981 Landis would have nailed it, but I know 2011 Landis doesn't.Read in Source
December 02, 2011 'Burke & Hare', it's all a bit Monty Python without enough Monty or Python.Read in Source
October 27, 2011 "Burke and Hare" is a waste of a good cast and a better story, as well as a hollow reminder of how John Landis seemingly has lost his touch.Read in Source
September 08, 2011 To call it a black comedy is probably misleading: It's grey at best, and apart from a few scattered chuckles, it dies as quickly and gracelessly as Burke and Hare's victims.Read in Source
New York Post
September 09, 2011 All of the actors are enjoying themselves, and the movie is stuffed with history, atmosphere and vivid characters. What's in short supply, though, is laughter.Read in Source
January 29, 2012 A misfire to be sure, Burke & Hare's comedic timing feels one step off, resulting in a film with solid performances and an amusing story, but not many laughs and not much replay value.Read in Source
New York Times
September 09, 2011 A droll take on one of the most notorious mass-murder cases of the 19th century.Read in Source
December 01, 2011 Rarely has the ratio of quality talent to dismal returns been as high as in "Burke & Hare,'' a macabre British period piece that's nowhere near as funny as it thinks.Read in Source
September 09, 2011 It's just scene after scene of two obnoxious people killing various other obnoxious people.Read in Source
Mark Leeper's Reviews
December 19, 2011 Not a first-ranked film, but for fans of horror or even just comedy, BURKE AND HARE is will worth seeing.Read in Source
We Got This Covered
November 09, 2013 Burke And Hare is a damning return for Ealing. It's self conscious and off putting cameos ruin the film. Full of misjudged humour, mixing immature humour with overly mature gore makes this one not funny in the slightest.Read in Source
