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

Terror at sea

C´mon people, this film is not that bad as often said! In any case it´s much better than the awful fourth part of the series! Okay, gorehounds surely will be disappointed, because there is only one splatter scene brought on, but director Armando de Ossorio did a good job with creating a wonderful creepy atmosphere with lots of fog, half-dark pictures and middle aged monk chorales. Somehow this film even could be watched as a predecessor to John Carpenter´s classic "The Fog", because both movie are quite similar to each other in view of the mood and the style. If you like the Blind Dead-series you should not miss this one!
