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.

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.
awful. in a good way. could pass on the r*pe scene
I’m so surprised the reviews are this positive! I’m usually the one defending weird old horror movies but I didn’t like this. The skeleton zombies looked really great but far too delicate to be dangerous. I could not get into people being hickied to death. I was left with so many questions like, on what kind of trip would someone pack a sleeping bag but only one pair of high heel shoes? and why does Virginia like Roger? Why does Betty like Roger? Why would anybody like the annoying man Roger? Far and away the most charming part of the movie was the way Virginia hops off a moving train and has a chill little camp out in some isolated ruins. Truly, I love the confidence. Multiple quietish, weirdly nonchalant sexual assaults in this movie. It’s a downer I could do without as always, but I’ve never seen scenes like this be so boring. And I’m annoyed that the boarding school scenes were never referenced again. I felt like it should have been a plot point but apparently not.
The movie does have some genuinely freaky moments, but bearded zombies sucking the blood of women and children is just gross, and the most useless character getting many others killed because she forgot how to use her legs when she could be a burden on others was just annoying! Was going to give it two skulls, but that ending was just too frustrating.
