The undead Templars cannot see.  They thirst for the warm blood of the living, and hunt victims by following their terrified screams.  This is the badly chopped U.S. version of "Tombs of the Blind Dead."

The comparison to 'Beaches' was beautiful (wiping away a tear).

If only Bette Midler had been chased down and slashed to death by undead Templars.

I have the Blue Underground "The Blind Dead Collection" box set and the quality is very good.  They also included both the original and the US versions for each film.  The "Tombs of the Blind Dead" DVD linked to in the review to purchase the film is part of that set - just the first film (both versions) only.

Wasn't this movie on Elvira's Fine Features?  I seem to remember this, but it has been soooo long since I have seen Elvira and her fine features.  Is there a train scene at the the end where a girl and a guy escape only to be followed by the blind dead?

I would like to see this again if it is what I am thinking of.

Later,

John

The version I have is an old vhs copy...entitled RETURN of the EVIL DEAD (?).

This is most likely your film.  She does get on a train to escape, but it tarries too long and the blind dead catch it.

That is the second in the series, also known as "Return of the Blind Dead" (and other names).  For some reason, the Blind Dead movies all have about 10 alternate titles.

Some little interesting stuff cut out of the blind dead like the fact that betty and virgina are lesbians, pedro actually isn't a nice guy he rapes betty before the blind dead get him in the end that was also cut as well as some violence all this was restored on the dvd of this movie called the tombs of the blind dead the actually title of the film.

That video with the girl screaming reminds me of the problem I had with the Sci-Fi channel original film "Minotaur". Instead of staying quiet so the monster doesn't catch them the characters scream and yell at each other. My roommate and I used the words "Shut up!" many times that night as we watched.

There's even a scene I remember where two characters are climbing up to freedom, the minotaur appears, and it doesn't notice them UNTIL the girl screams.

I watched this movie the other night and I had no idea there was gonna be a review of it. Anyways, I thought the movie was alright and I guess a little Spanish exploitation never hurt anybody.

The only movie with the Templars I've seen is Ghost Galleon, and that one was pretty amusing, albeit the version I had was edited (and given the misnomer "Zombie Flesh Eaters").

The main problem I have with this film is trying to understand why two lesbians would be interested in a man?

There's a new flick "Army of the Dead" 2008 Reminds me of the blind dead but like most new movies it just sucked!!
The second of the Blind Dead series is my fave! The First i have in spanish with subtitles but it still chills you!
The slow movement when they ride for the victims is cool. Love this crap!!

Is it just me or did Peter Jackson see this movie before filming the Black Riders in Lord Of The Rings?

    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.
