One means to make murder funny, while the other isn't supposed to be, but might just fill you with cheesy movie glee.
First up, we've got a trailer for John Landis' first feature film (besides a Don Rickles documentary) in over ten years -- 'Burke and Hare.' It's not exactly a return to horror form as we once expected, being a comedy and all, but there are some reasons to tune in. Simon Pegg plays Burke while Andy Serkis, of 'LotR' Gollum fame, gets to enjoy playing a human as Hare. Their joined by a cast that features a lot of other great actors to look out for -- Tim Curry, Christopher Lee, Tom Wilkinson and Isla Fisher as Burke's belle.
While it looks silly to the supreme, and seems rather unbelievable, the horror comedy follows the true story of ne'er-do-wells who find monetary success supplying dead bodies to a doctor (Wilkinson). But when they want more money and have no more naturally dead people to sell, they begin to kill people for the cash. The charm will definitely rest with the chemistry between Pegg and Serkis, and let's hope this doesn't turn out like Landis last buddy film, 1998's 'Blues Brothers 2000.'
Hit the jump for the trailer and some 'Death Race 2' action.
