Final sequel in which the medieval zombies awake again to commit ritual sacrifices
3 July 2010 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Fourth and enjoyable sequel of the Templars dead series . The blind dead Templars return again from the 13th century with this eerie story . The film starts when a couple formed by a doctor ( Victor Petit ) and his wife ( Maria Kosti ) go to a coastal small community where are unfriendly received . Only the village's dumb ( Jose Calvo ) and a young orphan ( Sandra Mozarowsky ) make acquaintance with them . They aware that for seven nights every seven years, the villagers have to sacrifice their virgin daughters to these eyeless dead during a nocturnal ceremony on the beach . Then the priests warriors wake up from the tomb worshipping a strange idol and begin their criminal rampage . Ancient Zombies return of graves causing wreak havoc on the village , horrifying and torturing the rural population . They make a brutal massacre in the little village and the protagonists are surrounded in a house . Meanwhile the starring attempts to save the damsel in disgrace . This third following ,the first sequel was ¨Return of evil dead¨ , from the original ¨Tombs the blind dead¨ also we find the famous blind dead zombies which rise from the tombs 500 years after to wreak havoc upon some beautiful Euro-babes . The zombie-like pack of ancient warriors priest awake and rising from the graves to kill and torture the unfortunate victims . They were condemned and eternally dammed by cult practicing human sacrifices and blinded by crows. They encounter their victims by means of screams and sounds. This is a cheap Spaniard production with lack luster and low budge t. Special effects are ridiculous and embarrassing, absurd and frankly lousy . In the film appears known Spanishtrash actresses as Sandra Mozarowski, Susana Estrada , Julia Saly and Maria Kosti .

This atmospheric horror movie contains scary scenes when appear the living dead Templars . It's the third following of the first great success and immensely popular ¨Tombs of the Blind dead¨ which to be continued by a trilogy : Return of evil dead, Ship of Zombies or Blind dead 2 and this one also titled Blid dead 3 or The night of the sea gulls . The Zombi-like are blinded by crows but they made human sacrifices and were executed and the clergymen return eventually to the life . Good exteriors filmed on seaside outdoors as Tossa De Mar and Ampurias, Girona and interior set in Talamana del Jarama (Madrid) , location in which during the 60s and 70s were filmed several Spanish terror movies . Creepy and frightening music especially when the dead attack is well composed by Anton Garcia Abril, author of the four eerie soundtracks . This lack budget film is regularly directed by Amando De Ossorio but is amusing and entertaining . This is a mediocre attempt to cash of following exhausted medieval warriors saga.
