"The Templars shall rise from the dead."
27 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

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.
