Product Description

Product Description

All four films in the 'Blind Dead' series, from writer-director Amando de Ossorio. In 'Tombs of the Blind Dead' (1971), when a group of tourists stumble across a ruined monastery, they inadvertantly cause the undead corpses of 13th century, devil-worshipping Templar Knights to rise from their graves and drain the blood from the locals. The knights were executed and the corpses left out for birds to pluck out the eyes, so these avenging demons locate their victims by sound alone. In 'Blind Dead 2: Return of the Blind Dead' (1973), it is 500 years since the heretic Templar Knights were blinded and brutally executed and the local village is celebrating the occasion. But on this 500th anniversary, the cannibalistic blind zombie killers rise from their unhallowed graves once more to hunt the living, tracking their victims by sound alone. The survivors flee to the local church for shelter, but are soon surrounded by the knights. Can they hold out until morning? In 'Blind Dead 3: The Ghost Galleon' (1974), when a pair of swimsuit models disappear after reporting a mysterious abandoned boat at sea, a search party sets out to investigate. Before long, they discover that the boat is home to the bloodthirsty, undead Templar Knights, and they must struggle to stay one step ahead of the eyeless zombie killers. Finally, in 'Blind Dead 4: Night of the Seagulls' (1975), in a remote coastal town, the terrified locals must sacrifice beautiful virgins to the blood cult of the eyeless zombie Templar Knights. For seven nights every seven years, these undead killers rise from the sea to feast on human flesh. This time, do the villagers have the courage to resist them?

This is a generally fantastic set of four long overdue films. The picture is grand, and the choices for sound are also superb. The set is a little light on extras (with the notable exception of the fifth disc), but considering how much cheaper this set (Anchor Bay) is in comparison to its American counterpart (Blue Underground), it's a fabulous deal.
One note, however - Amazon lists the films as "dubbed," but whereas the U.S. Blue Underground edition features both English and Spanish tracks, this UK edition features only the original Spanish with optional subtitles. No English audio tracks are available.

I thought I would order this set and save some money compared with the Blue Underground U.S.A. set. But that was a mistake, as I found out that "Tombs of the Blind Dead" is censored. British DVD companies should have to label their disks "Censored by the Government" instead of passing them off as complete versions.

If you are sat at your computer thinking 'I would really like to see a film where Knights Templar rise from their graves for some reason and parade around on exceptionally slow moving (possibly zombie?) horses, and somehow manage to kill people despite moving like an arthritic sloth after a particularly heavy meal' then you have come to the right place my friend. You're especially in luck as the second film is essentially a remake of the first, and the third film (brace yourself!) brings those Templar-zombie shenanigans to a maritime setting.

If you're not thinking that, then you are missing out because these are some of the finest zombie films you will find. Wonderfully atmospheric and bizarre.

To say this is the "Collectors Edition" is insulting as these versions are cut, really misleading and wrong to label this in such a way, get the US Region 1 versions instead which are complete and left in their original state.
