The true tale of the notorious grave-robbers/murderers of 1820s Edinburgh gets the jokey treatment from John Landis.
Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis are the eponymous Irish corpse-peddlers, here portrayed as loveable chancers.
Various famous faces (Christopher Lee, Jenny Agutter, Stephen Merchant) pop up in cameos, while Ronnie Corbett struts amusingly as a pompous half-pint militia captain.
Some of the humour feels forced, but gore and period colour are ladled on generously.
After a decade-long big-screen hiatus, it’s good to see Landis back again, even if An American Werewolf In London seems a long time ago.
