Storyline

The model Noemi questions her employer Lillian about her roommate Kathy that is missing after receiving a call from Lillian, and she tells that she will go to the police. Lilian explains that Kathy is in an afloat boat in the Atlantic with another model participating of a publicity stunt, and she brings Noemi to meet Howard Tucker and his henchman Sergio that have idealized the advertising campaign. Kathy uses the radio to report that a ghost galleon without crew has arrived and Tucker sends a helicopter to bring the models back; however the pilot does not find them at the location. Tucker contacts Professor Grüber that studies the Sixteen Century galleon and they use a boat to reach the ghost vessel with Sergio, Lillian and Noemi. Soon Professor Gruber learns that the damned galleon is stranded in another dimension and the crew is composed of excommunicated Templar zombies. Now they try to leave the galleon and return to their own dimension. Will they succeed in their intent? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

a considerable disappointment
16 March 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

I thought the second in this series was considerably less effective than the first and as for this, the third, well what can I say? I guess, this was made quickly and for little money and that whilst the idea must have seemed a good one, once you are stuck on a boat you do tend to be stuck, without a paddle as it were. The dialogue is terrible, I'm not sure the acting was as bad as it seemed , it may have been partly down to the dubbers. Too many sequences of bikini clad girls making vain attempts to do something in rather dark conditions. The 'Blind Dead' are without their horses and make nothing like the impact that they did in the other two films, even the fact that they are blind seems to have been glossed over. There is also little of the nastiness or real sense of fear and no suspense, so this really is a considerable disappointment.
