    Synopsis


    Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
    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 undead), viewers are left with a rather mundane police drama as clueless detectives try to pin the mutilation murders on a group of free-wheeling hippies. Despite high production values and some audacious gore effects by Giannetto De Rossi (who would later lend his splattery talents to Lucio Fulci's Zombie and many more Italian zombie films), this Spanish/Italian co-production falters in the middle thanks to sluggish pacing and dull investigation scenes, which are devoid of suspense since the zombies' existence is already made known. Also released under the quaint title Breakfast at the Manchester Morgue, among others. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

      Essential Pre-Dawn of the Dead Zombie Film

      In between Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead was Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue. AKA "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie", this is an essential piece of early 70s zombie cinema. With makeup effects by the same person who did them for Fulci's Zombie, this is a real gem of a film. Don't expect hoards of zombies... the living dead are small in number, but the film still works and packs some genuine chills. If you're a fan of zombie cinema, this is essential viewing that predates Dawn of the Dead.

      slow moving Zombie film

      The characters in this movie act so abnormal. I don't think the writer had any idea how to write dialog or someone messed up on the translation. The movie isn't very popular and most people blame it on the fact that the film has gone through so many different name changes. I believe it's simply because the movie is very slow moving and has barely any payoff.

      This movie isn't a horrible 2 rated movie. It has some nice old/foreign zombie action in it. I just couldnt recommend this movie too most people as they would probably find it boring. A zombie collector this is a must have though.
