The Blind Dead's Creepy Finale
23 February 2007 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

The fourth installment of Amando De Ossorio's 'Blind Dead' series, "La Noche De Las Gaviotas" aka. "Night Of The Seagulls" is a very creepy Spanish Horror Exploitation flick, and, after the great original, the second best part of the series.

When Dr. Henry Stein (Víctor Petit) and his wife Joan (María Kosti) come to a fishing village in the middle of nowhere, where Henry is to replace the old local doctor, the locals seem hostile and refuse to talk to the young couple. The young couple hear strange noises at night, and after they employ a local girl, Lucy (Sandra Mozarowsky), they begin to find out why the locals are not so keen on talking to strangers. The little village is haunted by the Living Dead. Devil-worshiping Templars, who had been blinded and executed for their evil habit of sacrificing young women and drinking their blood in order to gain eternal life in medieval times, rise from their graves for seven nights every seven years. And the villagers have to pay a horrible price to the blind dead for sparing their village...

"Night Of The Seagulls" is not quite as great as "Lan Noche Del Terror Ciego" aka "Tombs Of The Blind Dead", the first part of the series, but it is definitely a very entertaining horror flick and creepy as hell. The performances are better than in the second and third part, Víctor Petit and María Kosti are good in the leading roles and Sandra Mozarowsky (who was only 16 when this film was made, and who sadly committed suicide at the age of only 18 in 1977) fits into the role of Lucy very well. Amando De Ossorio definitely invented some of the horror cinema's creepiest creatures when he created the Blind Dead, and these evil Templars are once again scary as hell. This fourth installment of the series is, in my opinion, actually the second-creepiest part after the first. The incredibly eerie score was one of the greatest aspects of "Tombs Of The Blind Dead", and since it worked so well with the first one, Amando De Ossorio wisely used it for all of the sequels too. And I couldn't imagine any other score that would fit as well into "Night Of The Seagulls", as this eerie choir, which manages to even intensify the creepiness and suspense. The last part of the "Blind Dead" series, and the second-best to the first, "Night Of The Seagulls" is a creepy and amazing little film that no lover of Eurohorror can afford to miss!
