Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie also known as The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is a 1974 horror film written and directed by jorge Grau and starring Ray Lovelock, and Cristina Galbó. Arthur Kennedy
When people talk about Zombie Horror movies they generally talk about George A. Romero ill-conceived movies. I tend to fall asleep while I try to watch them because they're very boring movies. I don't understand why they get so much attention. Let sleeping corpses, on the other hand, has a brilliant, shrewd plot which keeps me compelled while I watch it. The Movie was ahead of it's time. I find the movie has a really sharp story to it and the zombies are really convincing in it.
George, a antique collector who gets his Motorcycle smashed in by girl named Enda at a gas station as he walks away from it. She sympathetically offers him a ride to anywhere he needs to go, he compromises with it. He later on persuades enda to let him drive her car. They end up in a town where Nightmarish acts are occurring. The town is infested with the un-dead walking among it. Finally they discover the root of the problem was made by an agricultural machine using radiation waves to kill off bugs on the corps, which was consequently wakening the Dead up.
