Blind Dead Series

‘A virgin is sacrificed in a blood ritual’   With comments like that in the trailer you know a film is going to be of the highest moral fiber!

The Blind Dead series actually consists of 4 different films made in Spain during the first half of the 1970s.    Tombs of the Blind Dead, Return of the Blind Dead, The Ghost Galleon, and Night of the Seagulls.  Yeah… seagulls.  Whatever.  The seagulls have something to do with virgins and souls or some shit, I just think seagulls are disgusting so what does it matter.

Each film in the series contains a group of ancient knight templars that come back from the dead to hunt and kill a new group each time.  The knights are without eyes and hunt based on sound, hence the Blind Dead of course.  The reasoning for the lack of eyes changes throughout the series from at one point being plucked out by birds to at another time having them burnt out with pokers, but all that matters is they are blind, dead and really pissed off.

It should be said that the Blind Dead series are nothing groundbreaking, so much so that very casual horror fans would do better to skip the series.  True horror fans, especially those that love the horror of the 60s and 70s, should make it a point to see them for some more entertaining and WTF moments.  Moments such as being trapped in a church with flesh eating monsters outside… what to do??? I know… let me just try and rape this gal!  Women escaping near death encounters on the back of an undead templar horse!  Just lots of scenes spread throughout that make you stop and check if you really just saw what you thought you saw.
