Description by

The Flesh and the Fiends is set in Edinburgh, 1827. Two Irish immigrants hit upon the idea of selling the bodies of the recently deceased to eminent surgeon Dr. Robert Knox. Dr. Knox, knowing that experimental vivisection is the only way for medicine to make progress, forms an uneasy alliance with the self-styled body snatchers. But when their supply of corpses runs out, they decide to murder for their inventory. Knox, who has turned a blind eye, is forced to defend himself with all of his skill and intelligence as everyone closes in, condemning his controversial actions.

Product Description:

Based on the actual story of Burke and Hare, THE FLESH AND THE FIENDS is a brutal film in which Edinburgh's Dr. Robert Knox (Peter Cushing), a slightly mad scientist, is in constant need of dead bodies for vivisection to further his studies. Donald Pleasence plays a graverobber who provides the corpses for Knox's experiments, first through the traditional, shady means of theft, but ultimately resorting to murder to meet his demands.
