Second sequel Templars dead developed into a ghostly vessel, 14 February 2007
Author: ma-cortes

The Templars Zombies return in this mediocre sequel,now in a medieval ship.Two models with advertising aims embark in a yacht when find the damned vessel.Later a diverse group(Jack Taylor,Maria Perschy,Manuel De Blas,Carlos Lemos and Barbara Rey)on board and sail to look for them and again encounter the ghastly ship drifting like the Errant Dutch vessel.

In this second following(the first sequel was ¨Return of evil dead¨) from the original ¨Tombs the blind dead¨ also we find the famous blind dead zombies which rise from the tombs 500 years after to wreak havoc upon a beautiful bikinied Euro-babes.The zombie-like pack of ancient warriors priest awake and rising from the graves to kill and torture the unfortunate victims.They were condemned and eternally dammed by cult practising human sacrifices and blinded by crows.They encounter their victims by means of screams and sounds. This is a cheap Spaniard production with lack luster and low budget.Special effects are ridiculous and embarrassing,like the ship, an absurd toy-miniature into a bathtub that is frankly lousy.In the film appear known Eurotrash actors as Maria Perschy (¨Fumanchu castle,Hunchback of Morgue,Exorcism¨ ,however played for Howard Hawks in ¨Man's favorite sport?'with Rock Hudson) and Jack Taylor (usual player for Jess Frank: Eugenie,Count Dracula,Necronomicon,Commando Mengele),posteriorly he worked for Amando De Ossorio in ¨Hydra,sea serpent¨. Creepy,eerie music especially when the Templars clergymen appear is in charge of Anton Garcia Abril and atmospheric photography by Raul Artigot.This is a mediocre attempt to cash of following exhausted medieval warriors saga.Followed by another inferior sequel ¨Night of the seagulls¨also titled ¨Night of the death cult¨.
