    A história de zumbis que voltam devido a um equipamento de radar em um interior. É bem legal, principalmente o final :D

    A cop chases two hippies suspected of a series of Manson family-like murders; unbeknownst to him, the real culprits are the living dead, brought to life with a thirst for human flesh by chemical pesticides being used by area farmers. Director: Jorge Grau Ok This film is fantastic once it get rolling. The "cop" played by Arthur Kennedy a total bigot with his judgemental lines are hilarious . [Jorge] Grau delivers all the stumbling zombies and gory flesh feasts you could hope for in a 1974 A great, underated and mostly undiscovered epic of a film with a serious twist in the tale - highly recommended, i'm off to buy it now!

    Really dope and unique (at least at the time) zombie flick. You can see the obvious inspiration from Night of the Living Dead, but they take that ball and run with it. Good gore, social commentary, and an obnoxious lead, who you want to see get his just due.

    So stupid it hurts but its esthetic is 70's vintage category A1, which makes it really noteworthy. The country side is shot in such a way as to make it seem enveloped by doom and death. Also, Its pleasantly anti establishment but unfortunately, the character carrying this torch is truly moronic.

    This flick actually predates big zombie classics like Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Zombi (1979). And it makes the list of the best zombie films ever made. It's a little more slow-burning, blending mystery with zombie bloodshed. And while the acting isn't the film's strongest point, it's atmospheric, and has some suspensful moments. It also has some reflexions on the countercultures of the 70s, as well as environmental problems. Overall, this is a fun and enjoyable cult classic and a must-see for zombie fans. Recommended!!

    Otherwise known as The Living Dead of Manchester Morgue, as a Zombie movie this is underrated. Having said that, I don't rate zombie movies very highly anyway. This is another one of those Italian horror films shot outside Italy but using Italian actors. I don't quite get how they thought they could get away with getting the cast to speak English but then have the entire dialogue dubbed by voiceover actors with local accents. No matter how much I played around with the audio delay, I couldn't get the voices to sync with the picture and it just looked wrong as the cast also look Italian but speak like the cast of a carry-on film. It just seemed that, for some reason, they thought that this method was a winner but surely there are easier ways to make films which guarantee acceptible results.
