Burke and Hare UK première

Last night Burke and Hare had it’s UK première just in time to give us the willies for Halloween.

The film about two 19th Century grave robbers, stars Simon Pegg, Tim Curry and Andy Serkis and various other great British actors, all of whom attended the London screening.

Wife of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher also stars in the film, playing the love interest of William Burke (Pegg).

Last night Fisher turned heads, looking stunning in red, having given birth only two weeks ago.

She said: “I was actually pregnant during the shooting and I had severe morning sickness and I didn’t eat anything and I just vomited all the time.

“Simon Pegg is the least observant actor on the planet because he didn’t notice. I think he presumed I was just a typical Hollywood bulimic actress rather than the fact that I was severely sick.”

The film is directed by John Landis, the man behind the legendary Michael Jackson Thriller video and also An American Werewolf in London, which we are currently giving away tickets to see at a special Halloween screening.

Burke and Hare tells the real-life story of two men who steal bodies to sell as cadavers to an Edinburgh medical school, once they realise it is a very lucrative business.

The story of Burke and Hare has previously been made into a horror film in 1971, however this version is more of a black comedy.

Burke and Hare is released in UK cinemas on 29th October.

Take a look at the trailer below.
