The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue

Horrible Imaginings presents Spanish director Jorge Grau’s 1974 zombie film, The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (Let Sleeping Corpses Lie).

When a cop investigates the murder of a woman’s estranged husband, he suspects a couple visiting the English countryside are responsible. Unbeknownst to him, a new radioactive device that serves as an alternative to pesticide being used by farmers is raising the dead . . . and they have a ravenous appetite for human flesh!

Beautifully restored in glorious 4K, The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is a cult classic that screams to be seen on the big screen!


“There are some cheesy moments (and gaping plot inconsistencies) as one might expect. But any laughter soon turns to screaming as the screen fills with calculated gory mayhem and some fine shock moments.” — Almar Hafidason, BBC

“The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue goes straight for the jugular —or the brains or the intestines—and delivers a heavily atmospheric, deliberately-paced, deliciously gruesome Zombie experience that, no matter what title it’s going by today, remains a favorite of genre aficionados.” — Martin Liebman, Blu-ray.com

Suspenseful and very tense, The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue holds its own alongside genre giants like Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and Lucio Fulci’s Zombie . . .” — Ian Jane, Rock! Shock!
