The Flesh and The Fiends (1960)

December 10, 2020

We're traveling back in time for some true crime this episode. Or rather, horror movies based on a true crime from the 1800s. The Flesh and the Fiends is the best version of the telling of Burke and Hare, but we'll also talk about all of the other versions (the good and the bad). Get a short history lesson from Lance before we dive into our thoughts about this underseen horror gem.
