THE MOVIE

This 1971 Spanish/Portuguese co-production is the first in a quadrilogy, the the other parts being RETURN OF THE EVIL DEAD, GHOST GALLEON and NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS, all directed and written by Amando de Ossorio.
TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD ("La noche del terror ciego", which means The night of the blind dead) might not be for everyone's taste. I really enjoyed it, it is very different from other zombie movie out there.
The direction is nothing to get excited about, it is a rather slow-moving movie, but still very effective with a few shock moments that will definitely get you at least once.
The acting is mediocre. You get your typical stereotypes here and nothing more.
The templar knight zombies however are very well done. Forget Romero's badly made-up DAWN OF THE DEAD zombies in comparison, these look awesome! And this movie was made 8 years before Romero's classic!
The atmosphere created in TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD is fantastic. A great and very effective score with additional chilling sound effects. The templars riding on horseback (on undead horses!) is shot in slow-motion, which is very effective. I loved the monastery ruins set. The entire scene where the templars make their first appearance is just fantastic and eerie, even by today's standards.
These zombies are not the crazed steroids-type from the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, they are slow and actually blind - they track their prey by sound. This might sound lame, but is is highly effective and executed very well. The reason they are blind is later explained and fits well into the background story.
TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD was widely released in the US in a heavily cut form in which it received the PG rating instead of the R.

Betty, Roger and Virginia are all going on a camping trip but Virginia goes off alone and decides to stay the night at a abandoned medieval village. While she is their she is killed by a band of zombie like Knight Templar's who return from their grave to drink the blood of the living. Fearing for Virginia's safety Roger and Betty go in search for her.

This was Spanish director Amando de Ossorio's first of four films he made that would be known has his Blind dead collection. He had obviously watched George A Romero's Night of the Living Dead as his zombies move very slow and sluggish just like the ones in Romero's classic.

He may copy the style in how he wants his zombies to move but he does incorporate some stylish ideas of his own, such as their appearance. They look like cross between mummies and skeletons and wear black hooded cloaks that resemble the grim reaper. Some of these zombies carry swords and other rides horses.

Where the film really ex hails is its ghostly atmosphere, the medieval village is very creepy and a perfect location choice. Another compliment that has to go to Ossorio is his effective use of slow motion as the Knights Templar return from their graves and as the horseman appear out of the darkness.

Even with all its plus points this is a by the numbers horror filled with the typical cliches such as a girl spending the night alone in a deserted and creepy village and the zombies move really slowly and it appears that it would be pretty easy to escape from them.

Still even with these flaws this is still a enjoyable film made better by a powerful score by Anton Garcia Abril.

The version I watched was The Anchor Bay release, which had great image quality, full screen and was uncut.

Any serious horror fan will be fully familiar with the Blind Dead series and I'm sure most would agree that this first part is the best. I've always been a massive fan of "Tombs of the Blind Dead" and just love the atmosphere and mood of the film. The sequences where the Templar's rise from their tombs are excellent and the whole build up to it around the monastery exudes atmosphere of the highest order. The Blind Dead Templar's themselves have a great creepy look with their rotten faces and black cloaks and who can forget the stylish slow motion scenes on horse back. The soundtrack is excellent and so effective in adding to the suspense. The film in general is just a hell of a lot of fun throughout. You also get some blood and gore but it generally takes a backseat to the atmosphere and style of the film.
A definite must have in any horror collection. Of the sequels part 2; "Return of the Evil Dead" is the best and a lot of fun with plenty of action and gore. Parts 2 and 3; "The Ghost Galleon" and "Night of the "Seagulls" are still a good watch and underrated.
I've had this US Blue Underground version for years. It has choice of the shorter English dubbed version or the longer full version in Spanish with English subtitles. Of course the one to watch is the longer version.

I've got this film on a double sided US import DVD that has "Tombs..." in a slightly less edited form that's a couple of minutes longer and has "Return Of The Blind Dead" on the other side.
Tombs Of The Blind Dead (the first of 4 "Blind Dead" films) is an atmospheric variation on the undead/zombie genre. You won't get the usual lumbering, half-rotted zombies. These ones are skeletal, undead Templar knights from the 13th century, killed by villagers for their human sacrifices and blood-drinking practises that gained them immortality. They rise creepily and slowly from their graves centuries later. They're blind and hunt by sound (their eyes were pecked out by birds after the villagers hung them) which gives the director a chance to engineer some decent suspense. And they sometimes ride around on horseback in eerily soundtracked slow motion.
This film is quite slow-paced but genuinely creepy at points. If you're a gore fan you may be disappointed (there is some) but it's a pretty good film that manages a few very suspenseful sequences. Quite an effective, haunting soundtrack.
It's well worth a look. Filmed in Spanish with English subtitles.
