The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue

by

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, aka The Living Dead at The Manchester Morgue, No profanar el sueño de los muertos is a Spanish-Italian horror film released in 1974, written and directed by Jorge Grau and starring Ray Lovelock, Arthur Kennedy and Cristina Galbó

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 a government-developed chemical pesticide being used by farmers that accidentally reawakens the corpses present in a Manchester morgue.

“The dead don’t walk around, except in very bad paperback novels!”

Director Jorge Grau purposely cast an actress known for having a flat chest in the role of the nurse so that a fake chest piece could be applied so the zombies could tear into her flesh for the death scene.
