Synopsis

Fettes, an insecure and clumsy young medical student, accepts the position as second assistant to Dr. Knox, professor of anatomy in 19th century Edinburgh. His new job is to receive the bodies that will be used for study and dissection. But soon Fettes finds himself involved in a sordid plot that involves body snatching and murder.  The Body Snatcher is a free and parodic adaption of a short horror story written by R.L Stevenson, published for the first time in 1884.
