De Ossorio described the film as having "political aspects", evidenced by the mayor who looks to abandon the town and save himself when the Templars attack. See more »

The UK video released in 1994 by Redemption films was of the cut English language version, which was subsequently cut further by the BBFC, which removed a 6s shot of a woman's dress being torn by a Templar, revealing her breast. The version released onto UK DVD by Anchor Bay UK in 2005, as part of a "Blind Dead Box-Set", was of the longer/gorier Spanish language version and was passed fully uncut. See more »
The Return of the Blind Dead is not so much a sequel as it is a retelling. The original writer/director, Amando de Ossorio, is back on board for this, in my opinion, superior outing. That's right, I said superior. It's got a better storyline and it's not boring once. The pacing is right on the money. Unlike the original, there's no part where the action is lagging and there are a couple of laughs even. Despite this, it's still not a good horror movie. I think they should have combined their efforts and put the two films together; the make-up and general style of the first, and the action and claustrophobia of the second. They could have made one decent horror flick instead of two mediocre ones.
