LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE / Star Films S.A. - 1974

Welcome everbloody to Friday Night Drive-In, here at The Dungeon! Tonight we gots a Spanish/Italian flick filmed in England and has a storyline like this... "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 chemical pesticides being used by area farmers."

This film has 19 AKA's including THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE, BREAKFAST AT THE MANCHESTER MORGUE, DON'T OPEN THE WINDOW, INVASION DER ZOMBIES, THE LIVING DEAD and ZUMBI 3, so better watch out for this one!

The oddball music is by Mr. Giuliano Sorgini, who had 10 composing credits between 1974-97, this was his first movie.

Welp, time to bring in our fuzzy lil' Dungeon helper and 6-eyed freek, Ralphie The Tarantula, and he's here to push the big red 'GO' button and start the Eariffic Earclip! So, always remember, and never forget to... LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE!!

In a 1974 horror film, this spectre of doom was an easy target!

But, don't forget about those sneaky deregulated oil companies and their experimnetal systemic pesticides and the such!! In NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, it was a radio-active satellite that crashed in Pennsylvania that caused all the problems.

Uncle Joe, you seem all upset about something!..

I swear, I didn't eat your Boo Berries!! Aaaaaaaaaa!!!..

Great sign for The Old Owl Hotel. One mistake in the film is that owl is spelled 'olw' on the door!!

She looked through one of them black eye telescopes... We'll just call her, Pete!

Wow, what a nice place to...

...Get all clawed up by a freakin' nutso zombie!

I see London!

Yeah, I guess that's one way to use a cross!.. Are zombies atheists?

The film really has some beautiful scenery, especially for foggy old England.

And, you think you're havin' a bad hair day! ...Yeesh!!

From one Zom-Bro to another! "May your fingernails be ever encrusted with human's blood!.. Hey-Yo!"

Looks like this zombie got carried away with his clawing!

I love this shot, it looks like Uncle Creepy working on the air conditioner!

When you finish speaking, you have to say, "over!" ...Over!!

It's... NIGHT OF THE LIVING FUZZ!

A great line from this filck is "The dead don't walk around, except in very bad paperback novels!" By the way, there's Arthur (FANTASTIC VOYAGE) Kennedy...

Ghoulnight Everbloody!!
