Yikes: that theme music is creepy  Buggedout but it sounds actually like a bunch of drunk monks singing over dropped kitchen utensils.  Wink

True, and one thing that ruins the atmosphere of the last film, "Night Of The Seagulls" is the over-use of the "clip-clop" used for the horses as the Templars come to the beach to collect their sacrifice.

Other than that, the only other thing I can think of that ruins the other films, is the obvious fake effigies of the Templars that were being "burned" to death at the beginning of the second film, "Return Of The Blind Dead."  The scene was so fake.  That, and the hands of the Templars, those "grabby" looking things.

The better option would have been to put makeup on the hands and in a way that blended in with the skeletal remains of the rest of them.  All in all though, I truly enjoyed the unique take on the living dead and the atmosphere of the Templars rising from the old church grounds.   True lost classics!   Cheers

Indeed! In fact, sometimes I think about the makeup on the Blind Dead and Naschy's Werewolf and think that they would be awesome characters to put together on the cover of one of those old horror comics from the early 70's, namely "Wierd" or "Tales From the Tomb".

Three or four of the Blind Dead could be biting that girl to death like they did in the movie while 3 or 4 others are staking Naschy thru the chest in that classic art style that made those comics the comics as cool as they were.

Indeed filmed in Portugal, as I love the film and have been trying to find the exact location of the castle ruins. Hope to have a holiday and pack in a visit at some point. This film is badly flawed, but it is creepily wonderful all the same and I dread a studio ever planning a remake.

I can't give you a definitive answer, but you may want to start with these buildings or buildings here, which can be glimpsed in the film.

Monasterio del Cescon, Madrid, Spain
Estorial, Cascais, Lisbon, Portugal
Faculty of Medicine, Lisbon University, Lisbon, Portugal

Good luck and happy hunting. I have had the good fortune to visit Spain, but I have yet to make it to Portugal. One of those places I hope to see sometime in the future.

One interesting fact about Spanish horror films: 

It was said that under Franco's rule, horror films couldn't be made in Spain. They could be made by Spanish film companies, but couldn't be filmed in Spain, thus the amount of filming in Portugal. Franco allegedly hated horror movies and thus the ban on these films being made in Spain.  Paul Naschy went into that in one of his interviews one time.  Also a lot of horror films were made in Italy at the time, as were a number of westerns, but the interesting thing is how all manner of films except horror films were allowed to be made in Spain.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
