Movie Info

When state officials test out a new experimental pest-control device that uses subsonic waves to kill insects, it produces an unwelcome but interesting side-effect: the noise is enough to wake the dead -- literally -- and the corpses of the recently deceased begin to rise from their dirt-naps with ravenous appetites for warm human flesh. Since the predicted zombie jubilee starts off with more than a whimper than a bang (actually it's more of a wheeze, since these are particularly asthmatic

Scenic settings, guts, and a residual contact high from the counterculture movement converge in one of the zombie genre's most unique and enjoyable entries.

Much of the pleasure of this UK take on Night Of The Living Dead comes from seeing the undead wandering round the grey landscape of '70s Britain as if they've accidentally lurched into an early Mike Leigh film.

It's artfully atmospheric, capturing a nightmarish landscape in the idyllic English countryside.

... Grau delivers the gore with a certain amount of restraint, never allowing the violence to overwhelm the film and building up a good amount of suspense between attacks.

This minor cult classic has its fans, to be sure, but it never really pays off.

Artfully builds its atmosphere of spiritual (and social) unrest.

Cˇpia nada ambiciosa de A Noite dos Mortos Vivos que, apesar de tudo, se revela bastante interessante e inc˘moda.

Director Jorge Grau has an incredible eye and creates a lavish horror spectacle.

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie or Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is an easily forgettable zombie movie. It doesn't offer anything that is memorable or that makes the movie worth the watch. The two main actors really annoyed me, especially the woman. Her voice got to me after 10 minutes of the movie and I just wanted the zombies to come and rip her open.

The characters were stupid like in most horror films. But damn, just kick the fucking ladder down and they'll stop climbing up.

I have three positives about Let Sleeping Corpses Lie. The zombies although not the best we've seen, look decent. And the settings are really cool and add a lot to the movie. If this was done somewhere else, I'd probably be giving it a one and a half. The third and final thing I liked about the movie was the ending. It was pretty fitting.

Living Dead At Manchester Morgue is one of the zombie genres greatest masterpieces. A near flawless film with a phenomenal story, the dead start rising after experiments with sonic waves. Released under several titles, this neglected zombie film has resurfaced once again under the supervision of Blue Underground and they have restored this film in all it's glory. Living Dead At Manchester Morgue is a must see film for zombie and horror fans alike. This film has been called one of the greatest zombie films ever filmed, and I have to agree. This is definitely one of the best zombie films and it shouldn't be neglected. The story at times is a bit uneven, but the film manages to provide enough zombie action to compensate for the films uneveness. This film is a classic of the genre and it's a film that zombie fans should check out if they haven't already. Living Dead At Manchester Morgue is a well crafted film that strong on atmosphere, and thats what makes it such a good, and effective horror film. Atmosphere is everything in a horror film, especially in a zombie film. Living Dead At Manchester Morgue is definitely one of the top zombie films ever filmed, and it stands as one of the best films of it's kind. A must see film.
