'The Screen's Last Word in Shudder Shock Sensation!' In The Body Snatcher, 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...
