Giuliano Sorgini ~ Let Sleeping Corpses Lie™ (1974)

"Dust to Dust...Ashes to Ashes..." but not for long!
The recent dead are turning in their graves - and they're hungry.
Their veins are crying out for the warmth of living blood.
Their gastric juices are screaming for human flesh and guts.
An electro-magnetic force has reversed the laws of life and death
the bloodbath has already begun!!!

Be careful!!!

Giuliano Sorgini ~ Let Sleeping Corpses Lie™ (1974)

Maestro Giuliano Sorgini, compositore musicale cinematografico!

Giuliano Sorgini è un compositore musicale che ha composto le colonne sonore, oltre che di innumerevoli programmi e documentari Rai, di alcuni film tra gli anni ’70 e ’80, allora definiti b-movies, oggi rispolverati anche grazie alla ventata tarantiniana successiva al progetto Grindhouse.
Ripercorriamo insieme a lui il suo percorso artistico associato al cinema, evidenziando luci ed ombre di una carriera sul grande schermo bruscamente interrotta nel 1996 nella convinzione di poter lasciare qualcosa componendo opere personali, dedicandosi completamente all’arte nell’accezione più nobile e meno inquinata del termine.

Part I
Living Dead at The Manchester Morgue, The

Over the years The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue has been released under numerous aliases like Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Zombie 3, Don’t Open the Window and Do Not Speak Ill of the Dead. Director Jorge Grau’s The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue may not be as well known as George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead or Lucio Fulci’s Zombie and yet the film is equally as impressive as these two films in every way. Visually The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is filled with fluid, competent and stylishly photographed compositions that capture the right mood without ever overstating it.

The story moves along briskly with the zombie attacks being perfectly spread out and the film goes out with a bang with an all out feast of flesh in its final moments. The films MacGuffin a machine that sends signals to the recently departed which brings them back to life doesn’t ever feel too far-fetched or unbelievable. One thing about the film that really stood out for me was how the two leads Edna and George always were able to see the zombies who just happen to not be around when the law or anyone else arrived on the scene. It is almost like what is happening is only in their minds and a few moments in the films like when a young girl tries to bring Edna water almost suggest this theory.

Part II

Living Dead at The Manchester Morgue, The

Zombie, zombie, zombie...

The two main leads Cristina Galbó as Edna and Ray Lovelock as George are all superb in their various roles. The performance that is most memorable is Cristina Galbó as Edna. She does a first rate of conveying her characters downward spiral into madness. Acting wise my only gripe is Arthur Kennedy as The Inspector whose character is just a tad too aggressive that in every scene he appears he totally changes the scenes overall tone. Composer Giuliano Sorgini’s score is eerie and atmospheric. Ultimately The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is deserving of its status as a classic zombie film with its ample amount of carnage and its clever ending that will leave you stunned.

One of the best zombie shockers of the 1970s, this Spanish-Italian coproduction (also known as The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue and Don't Open the Window, among other titles) is a real international affair. Inspired by George Romero's genre-shattering American hit Night of the Living Dead, it was shot in England by a Spanish director with a largely British cast, and supplemented by Spanish zombies and American character actor Arthur Kennedy as a bitter Irish police detective (with only a hint of a brogue). He's investigating a sudden rash of violent murders (the work of Satanists, he's convinced) and closes in on a pair of newcomers to the sleepy Northern England town, longhaired antique dealer Ray Lovelock and his nervous traveling companion Christine Galbó. Only they know the real culprits: newly deceased corpses, revived by agricultural experiments in ultrasonic radiation that are also turning newborns into vicious little monsters. Director Jorge Grau delivers all the stumbling zombies and gory flesh feasts you could hope for in a 1974 movie, but more importantly he creates the rare zombie thriller that manages to be both scary and smartly done. Some of the twists are a bit more far-fetched than others (why does dabbing blood on the eyes of long-dead cadavers magically bring them to life, and how would a zombie even know to try?), but it's a minor quibble in the face of the startling blood frenzy and Grau's satisfying dark dramatic twists.

Listen & Enjoy!

They're...They're dead, aren't they?
...But don't ask me, because I haven't the foggiest.
