Let Sleeping Corpses Lie ★★½ The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue 1974

England's answer to “Night of the Living Dead” is more polished and has a more pronounced environmental edge. George (Lovelock) and Edna (Galbo) are the heroes who must confront the cannibalistic animated corpses. If the film lacks the single-mindedness and originality of Romero's work, it's an accurate snapshot of the early 1970s with appropriately gruesome special effects. 93m/C VHS, DVD . GB Ray Lovelock, Christine Galbo, Arthur Kennedy; D: Jorge Grau; W: Alessandro Continenza, Marcello Coscia; C: Francisco Sempere; M: Giuliano Sorgini.
