WINNERS: ‘Burke & Hare’ giveaway

Burke & Hare

Burke and Hare - Australian One sheetTo celebrate the release of BURKE & HARE, together with Paramount Pictures and Transmission, we offered you the chance to win one of 5 double passes. Now that the bodies are all accounted for, we get a ghoulish thrill in announcing the winners of this great competition.

BURKE & HARE is a black comedy based on the true story of the body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis), directed by Hollywood legend, John Landis. These two Irish entrepreneurs discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.




To win this great prize, all you had to do was name the comedic actor who plays William Burke in BURKE & HARE. The answer was so easy that we gave it to you: Simon Pegg. The winners, drawn randomly out of our 21st equivalent of a hat, are:

  • James Haag
  • Sarah Middleton
  • Sonia Cattley
  • Fiona Raw
  • Gino Constantino

Congratulations, and a big thank you to all entrants! Keep an eye on your mail boxes, as your passes are on the way.
