"The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue"

10:39 PM

Or otherwise known as, "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie"

I'm a huge fan of horror movies. My favorite being Supernatural ghostly type films. I'm not big on zombies, really. However I wanted to watch one tonight, and this one came up in my queue on Netflix. Of course I wanted to watch it because of where it was filmed as I've really never seen much of Manchester at all. This film was made in 1974 as well, so I knew it would be very much like how Morrissey would have seen it back then. I don't know if it was really filmed there or not, but what I did see of "Manchester" in the film and also the country side, well it was so beautiful. I mean, I had to look past the blood and guts, but other than that...

I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone. The acting is terrible, but there are a few really creepy moments in the movie that made me cringe.

When I was about twelve my brothers rented "Day of the Dead" and I told them I was going to watch it with them. They told me flat out, "NO YOU'RE NOT!" Well, finally after about thirty minutes of pleading and telling them it wouldn't bother me, they let me watch it. To this day I've never gotten the images out of my mind! Especially the elevator scene - and if you've seen that movie, you'll know what I'm talking about.

So, now I'm off to sleep with images of red eyes, ghastly faces, and arms reaching out to grab me.

Ha! I'll never learn...Give me a ghost any day!!!
