Synapse Films has completed a brand new 4K restoration of Jorge Grau’s film The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue (a.k.a. Let Sleeping Corpses Lie). A Blu-ray release is expected to be announced later in 2019.
What’s the story?
Two traveling companions, George (Ray Lovelock of ‘Autopsy’) and Edna (Christine Galbo of ‘The Killer Must Kill Again’), come across a small town infested with the “living dead” that are satisfying their cannibalistic hunger on anyone they come across.
Discovering that an agricultural machine using radiation waves is at the root of all the havoc, George and Edna fight for survival and their innocence as they are pursued by a relentless detective (Arthur Kennedy of ‘The Antichrist’ and ‘Fantastic Voyage’) who is convinced they are responsible for the ghoulish acts of violence plaguing the countryside.
