Quote
A cop chases two young people visiting the English countryside, suspecting them of a local murder; unbeknownst to him, the real culprits are the living dead, brought to life with a thirst for human flesh by radiation being used by area farmers as a pesticide alternative.

Let sleeping corpes lie also known as The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is a Spanish and Italian co-production that drink directly from "Night of the Living Dead", the legendary film of Romero, but never limited to overwrite. Moreover, Jorge Grau film has certain details that make it unique, like the ubiquitous and prophetic ecological argument.

The film begins with images frankly environmentalists: birds killed by pollution, over-population, smoke.etc casting factories. The environment is very polluted, and all that will bring consequences for the human species.

Let sleeping corpes die has a lot of virtues: it is a zombie movie filmed exceptionally well, with a really good two main characters, the zombies achieved disturb, there are also a lot of mobility, ie things happen in the field, at home, on farms, in a church, in the morgue, a cemetery, a hospital, etc. ... Another detail really admirable, is the quality of the gore scenes and detail with the disembowelments, eating entrails, through gorges, etc.

Spectacular is the end, in the hospital, where the zombies attack en masse, and becomes a bloodbath with doctors, nurses, interns, etc ... Fire, death and guts.

Great film!!!

I have it as Let Sleeping Corpses Lie and also as The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, both dvds.

I actually like the title Let Sleeping Corpses Lie as a better title. I think it was a smooth film and the last 15 minutes of it was great.
