REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the new Burke & Hare offers many pleasures, chief among them the return of the Landis of old..”
by Nathan Rabin [AV Club]
“..witless drivel..”
by Ray Bennett [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the misfortune in this loping cadence is that the movie's stereotypes aren't made buffoonish enough to be gawked at..”
by Joseph Jon Lanthier [Slant Magazine]
