Alternate Versions

It was eventually released on the Kontiki label in 1987 (as "Don't Go Out At Night") after 1 min 6 secs of BBFC cuts to edit some scenes of nudity and violence, and was released fully uncut, under its original title, by Anchor Bay in 2005.

La noche de las gaviotas: Weakest and last in the series
13 March 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This fourth and finale movie in the Spanish zombie franchise The Blind Dead is sadly the worst one in a series that progressively got worse and worse from the outset.

My ratings were 8, 6, 4 and now a 3 so maybe it's best that the franchise ended when it did.

I really was blown away by the first film, I simply didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did and gradually became mortified upon realising that this franchise wasn't going to continue with that level of quality.

The first film was original, atmospheric, well paced and genuinely fascinating. Sadly they simply ran out of ideas and it all fell apart.

This fourth movie tells the story of a doctor and his wife who move to a beautiful coastal village only to discover that girls are being sacrificed to the Blind Dead. Though the concept is solid, the delivery falls flat.

You barely see the dead at all, the execution is flacid and it breaks my heart to say it simply isn't very good.

The Blind Dead collection had all the tools to be the stuff of legends but for me will be remembered as squandered potential.

The Good:

Couple of okay ideas

Cast are competent

The Bad:

Novelty is gone

Poorly made

Really quite dull

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

When sacrificing a woman its best to get her boobs out first, because reasons

Dead templars like to give their victims crabs
