Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (1974) Synopsis:

A traveler and a young lady found themselves entangled into a series of murders who seems to be committed by dead people corpses.

A new insect-killing device somehow backfires and manages to raise the dead from their graves. The newly created zombies terrorize the surrounding town in their search for delicious, warm flesh, as zombies are wont to do, in this Italian horror film.

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (1974) Review:

This lesser known UK classic from the ’70s is best described as the fusion of Romero’s Nigth of the Living Dead and the Fulci Zombie (or City of the Living Dead) for it is both critical of society and really gory.

Without reaching the genius of Romero’s film, the story from Let Sleeping Corpses Lie is meaningful, picturing the narrow-minded attitude of UK cop system back in that time. As for the gore, this film really does not deceive, and perfectly stand the comparison with Fulci’s goriest classics! This results in a movie that is surprisingly creepy, with really slow zombies but lots of action scenes nevertheless, and always happening in close spaces to make it unbearably claustrophobic.

Despite being a little lengthy at times, Let Sleeping Corpses Lie should not deceive fans of older zombie classic movies
