Critic Reviews of "Burke and Hare"Boston GlobeDecember 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.Arizona RepublicOctober 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.New York TimesSeptember 09, 2011
A droll take on one of the most notorious mass-murder cases of the 19th century.Newark Star-LedgerSeptember 09, 2011
It's just scene after scene of two obnoxious people killing various other obnoxious people.New York PostSeptember 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.NPRSeptember 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.We Got This CoveredNovember 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.DeadspinJune 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.IGN DVDJanuary 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.Mark Leeper's ReviewsDecember 19, 2011
Not a first-ranked film, but for fans of horror or even just comedy, BURKE AND HARE is will worth seeing.Boston HeraldDecember 02, 2011
'Burke & Hare', it's all a bit Monty Python without enough Monty or Python.Boston PhoenixNovember 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.
