10 best zombie movies ever
The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974)
A surprisingly intelligent, lyrical variation on the zombie theme from Spanish director Jorge Grau, made in England with a Spanish/Italian cast and crew. Contains one of the more novel means of revivification – ultra-sonic waves used by farmers as a new kind of pesticide create undead pests instead. Sound is fundamental to the movie – the 70s score mixes synths with heartbeats, howls and ghastly death-rattle noises – though the attention to sonic detail didn’t stretch to the frankly hilarious attempts at British accents.
