In 1971, director Amando de Ossorio created what horror fans worldwide consider to be Spain’s Night Of The Living Dead.

“They are called The Blind Dead, heretic horsemen whose eyes were burned out to prevent them from finding their way back from Hell. Over the course of 4 unforgettable films, writer/director Amando de Ossorio created what fright fans worldwide consider to be one of the most startling series in horror history. This unique quartet of shockers delivers a relentless onslaught of creepy atmosphere, shocking violence, forbidden sexuality, and the still-chilling icons of EuroHorror: The eyeless undead who hunt by sound in their quest for human flesh. Don’t move… don’t breathe… don’t let them hear your heart beating: The Blind Dead are back!
