Boris Karloff stars in one of his most chilling roles as the sinister 'resurrection man' of old Edinburgh.
Medical student Donald Fettes (Russell Wade) is apprentice to Dr. 'Toddy' MacFarlane (Henry Daniell), greatest anatomist of the age. But, as Fettes learns, MacFarlane is not scrupulous how he obtains the bodies he uses for dissection: he buys them from sinister cabman John Gray (Karloff), who robs the graves of the recently deceased.
But Gray's grim work has attracted attention and the cemeteries are under watch. Unwilling to give up his lucrative trade, Gray finds another source of corpses - the bodies of people he has killed himself...

One of Karloff's finest performances!

This film is one of the best horror films to come out of the 1940's. Karloff play's Gray, a carriage driver by day, who turns to the nefarious practice of grave robbery in order to gain extra cash to fund his meagre lifestyle. Henry Daniell plays Toddy, a reputable doctor, who, in order to further his medical knowledge and too increase his standing in the medical world, turns to Gray to provide him with fresh corpses on a regular basis, and at first, he's not too concerned where they come from. Karloff's character is well practiced in the arts of cunning and deceit, particularly when Lugosi's character blackmails him for money and ends up being one of his victims! Robert Wise directs an excellent cast and delivers a very, very good film based on the stevenson classic. So sit back, relax and enjoy this timeless, well directed and acted classic.
