THE MOVIE

Those zombie templars do get around despite their blindness! After their little cruise in GHOST GALLEON Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead haunt a fishing village in the serie's fourth and final installment.
Once again written and directed by maestro Ossorio himself, NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS (La noche de las gaviotas) is an improvement over the serie's weakest part, GHOST GALLEON, but not as good as the two first parts, TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD and RETURN OF THE EVIL DEAD (aka RETURN OF THE BLIND DEAD).
This time the story varies a bit, as the zombie templars rise seven nights every seven years to collect the sacrificial virgins offered more or less voluntarily by the townspeople as "protection money" which adds a whole new level of creepiness. One sure can't accuse Ossorio of a lack of ideas.
The story once again is not the stroke of a genius, but to be fair it never was intended to be.
Fairly descent acting (it seems the even numbered parts in this series got the good actors while the odd numbered parts got the bad ones) by Víctor Petit and María Kosty (the movie's "heroes"), as well as Sandra Mozarowsky and Javier de Rivera.
I especially liked the movie's introduction which takes place in medieval times before the story switches to a 20th century coast town on the Iberian peninsula.
I do miss the foggy monastery ruins of TOMBS OF THE DEAD (this time they rise from an intact castle at the seaside), but NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS does provide its own unique atmosphere and setting reminding me a bit of H.P. Lovercraft's Dagon / Shadow over Innsmouth. There's an impending doom feeling throughout the movie which the other entries lack and proves to be Seagull's strong suit.

4.0 out of 5 stars low on budget, high on atmosphere 11 May 2012
By ernst
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Where the former parts took their time to get into horrormode, this one starts from the very beginning with a spooky atmosphere. However this misses the images of the spooky monastry (witch made the first part so good), we get in turn nice dark landscapes where groups of black cloathed women travel allong, and almost hallicunating images of crabs wigling around a dead body. The climax of the film gives in all his silence a very creepy atmosphere.
This film is made with litlle money and not to much skill, but i like it very much for its almost dreamlike apearance. For me this is much better than the tiresome big budget nothings we receive from hollywood.

3.0 out of 5 stars End of a Saga 16 July 2007
By Bryan A. Pfleeger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
1977 saw the last installment of Amando de Ossario's Blind Dead Films. The Night of the Seagulls (aka Terror Beach) was a worthy end for a series that had been going rapidly downhill. Night of the Seagulls is however a vast improvement over the horrid Ghost Galleon.

As always the plot is fairly simple. A doctor and his wife (Victor Petit and Maria Kosty) move to a seaside village. Once there they are given strange warnings by the town's departing doctor and are treated with contempt by the local villagers. It seems that every seven years seven women must be sacrificed to the Knights from the sea in order to keep the town from being destroyed.

Dr. Stein and his wife hire a local girl, Lucy,(Sandra Mozarowsky) to be their servant. One night a neighboring village girl(Julie James) comes to the doctor's door in hysterics before being led off by the local village women in a strange procession. The doctor investigates and learns from the village idiot (Jose Antonio Calvo) about the sacrifices. The next night the villagers come for Lucy and the doctor intervenes and stops the Knights from taking their victim. As usual at this point everything falls apart and the doctor and his wife are attacked by the Knights. The ending has to do with the destruction of the Knights and a pagan idol which controls them.

Once again Blue Underground has done a fine job with the source material. The print quality is basically fine if at times a little soft focus. The audio is standard mono but clarity was good on the English dubbed version. The disc offers the original trailer and a stills gallery.

This is one of the least reviewed entries in the series and probably one of the least seen as well.This is a shame since it is also one of the better entries in the series. The acting is not great and the dialogue runs from the mundane to the just plain awful but the film has a curious ability to keep your attention for its relatively short run time. As with all the titles in this series, you should know what you are in for before spending the money and choose wisely. Well worth a rental for the creepy makeup and costumes. It is also good to see the Knights on horseback again and the riding along the beach scenes provide a iconic image for 70's horror fans.

Rent it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Templar Armaggedon 31 Dec 2007
By Brian E. Erland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The fourth and final installment of writer/director Amando de Ossorio's "Blind Dead" films proved the old adage "if at first you don't succeed..." to be true. `The Night of the Seagulls', released in '77, was in my estimation by far the best film in the series. The horrific human sacrifice sequence at the beginning immediately captured my attention and held my interest through to the very end. The storyline was simple, straightforward and coherent. The women where also more attractive then they were in the previous installments which never hurts since this genre of film is attracts a predominantly male audience.

Lots of improvements in this one along with that signature sound we've all come to know and love makes for a fitting ending to the "Blind Dead". If you only see one in the series make it this one.

By BOSSMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE BEFORE WATCHING THE OTHERS FIRST! I FIRST SAW THE "GHOST GALLION" & STILL LIKE IT THE BEST, EVEN THOUGH THE MINATURES ARE CRUDE, THE FLESH EATING ZOMBIES(THE TEMPLARS)ARE SCARY ENOUGH TO MAKE THE GIRL NEXT TO YOU DIG HER FINGERNAILS INTO YOUR LEG, ARM OR ELSEWHERE & OFCOUSE, THAT'S A GOOD THING! SO, ENJOY THESE EYELESS ZOMBIES, THE POPCORN & SCREAMS & WATCH IT WITH A GIRL WHO SCARES VERY EASILY & YOU'LL BE SURE TO HAVE SOME FUN!?

5.0 out of 5 stars The saga ends here..........where it all began. 28 Sep 2006
By Michelle R. Monroe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The classic saga of The BLIND DEAD ends with this creepy tale of a remote coastal town where frightened villagers must acrifice beautiful virgins to the blood cult of the Knights Templar. For seven nights every seven years, these eyeless zombies rise from the sea to feast on human flesh as the souls of the damned are trapped in the screams of gulls. In this final unforgettable shocker from writer/director Amando de Ossorio, the mood is darker, the fear is stronger and the hunger of the Templar more ferocious than ever before!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Spanish horror classic 7 Feb 2012
By Grindhouse and Horror - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is considered by some to be a weak entry in the Blind Dead series, but I personally have no complaints about it. The decrepit seaside village and atmosphere is superb, and the film captured my attention and I never got bored by it. There are many times when not much is happening because the film doesn't have a high body count, but it's well directed and I wouldn't consider it to be a slow moving film. It doesn't have a lot of gore, but some scenes are kind of violent and the Templar knights look great. You don't have to watch any of these Blind Dead films in order because they are all more like remakes then sequels. This particular entry in the series is loaded with atmosphere, and the entire picture basically takes place in a shabby old fashioned seashore village. The movie has a heavy emphasis on scenery and atmosphere, rather than violence and action. Having the entire film taking place in this one great atmospheric location will be either good or bad depending on your taste in films. The movie deals with the villagers sacrificing members of the village to the Templars by tying them to the rocks near the seashore, in order to avoid an attack from the blind Templar zombies. There's plenty of dismal atmosphere, and you get a good look at the sea and decrepit village throughout the film. The gore scenes are limited, but I thought it was interesting when those crabs are crawling over the sacrificed remains of the victims. After the zombies sacrifice someone, it sometimes shows crabs crawling over there remains. It doesn't explain why that is happening, but I liked it. This film might appeal to some mainstream horror fans, as long as they're avid fans of atmospheric horror. If you love atmosphere, and don't want something that's really fast paced and gory, you might really like it. I personally think it's one of the best Spanish horror films, and it's great to watch late a night.

The DVD quality has grain, but it looks really good overall.
