Tombs of the Blind Dead
Directed by Amando de Ossorio
A group of friends revive a group of Satan-worshipping zombies who hunt by sound in the first of Spanish horror auteur Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead films. In the 13th century an order of evil knights sought eternal life by drinking human blood and committing sacrifices. During their execution, crows pecked out each of their eyes. But this wouldn't be a horror movie unless some unsuspecting nudniks stumbled on their tombs and woke them up, leading to a gripping, gruesome chain of events that'll make you wish your own sense of sight wasn't quite so intact.

I am shocked by this movie, as much as some reviews say it's cheesy I actually thought it was kind of serious. Seems to present itself in a real way and it was dark medieval goth horror at it's finest plus it's Spanish. I love all the shots of them on horses and the ending was hilarious. Unnecessary assault scene is only issue but I still really enjoyed the movie.
If someone told me this was a bad softcore playing at being a horror movie, I may have believed them. Awkward 70s love scenes, a story that meanders everywhere, characters brought in just to be terrible and die 10 minutes later… don’t take this one seriously and just enjoy the cheese.
This movie is as slow as the zombies. The side plot was very questionable, and the acting was subpar. The scenery and outfits were cool for a nostalgic feature. Not sure why there were multiple plot holes, but it wasn't too terrible.
You're heartbeats away / from the Knights Templar nibbling / on your sweet, sweet flesh.
One of my favorite horror series i first saw on VHS back in the 1990's just before the passing of the great Spanish director Amando de Ossorio with each sequel going to another blood splattering gothic level of Blind Dead mayhem and staying true to the original.
