4.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Evil Dead, 13 May 2013
This review is from: Return of the Evil Dead [DVD] [1973] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Former navy captain, Jack Marlowe arrives at the historical village of Bouzano to perform a firework display to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of the evil Knights Templar. However a hunchbacked caretaker as risen the Knights from the grave so the villagers must defend the town against the blind killers.

This was the first of three sequels Amando de Ossorio made to his hugely successful Tombs of the Blind Dead. Out of all four films I would say that this is my personal favourite.

This is superior in all departments to its predecessor, here we have a better cast including, Tony Kendall, Fernando Sancho, Frank Brana and Esperanza Roy, a more action packed script and far more tense and exciting scenes.

Tony Kendall who was the star of the popular Kommissar X films, is the films protagonist. He is a former soldier and he has not only arrived in town to do a firework display but he is also their to restart his affair with Vivian the wife of the cowardly Mayor Duncan played by the great Fernando Sancho. In one scene Sancho uses a young girl as a decoy so he can escape from the Templar's but he plan back fires and he is killed.

There is a lot more action here than in the first film and we get a lot more gore and violence too, in one scene a man has his head decapitated, another has his hand cut off before he is hacked to death and a man is impaled on a spear.

The film starts off a little slowly and but once the Templars lay siege to the town it's a none stop thrill ride. A must see.
