When George A. Romero brought the zombies into
the modern era with a revision of the monster’s characteristics, the horror sub-genre
was popularized in countless other countries. Long before Shaun of the Dead,
The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue was set in England, a Spanish/Italian
horror movie with clear influence from popular American zombie narratives. While
it doesn’t stand up in comparison to some of the great zombie films, The
Living Dead at Manchester Morgue has a place in the sub-genre’s history.
