Released:
1971
Rating:
R
Tombs of the Blind Dead is considered to be one of Spain's best horror movies. During the mid-13th century, a legion of Knights Templar sought immortality through the taboo act of drinking human blood. The knights were hanged and left on the gallows for their eyes to be pecked out by birds. Buried and forgotten for nearly seven hundred years, the spirits are disturbed in the 1970s when a group of tourists pays an accidental visit to the Knights' Portuguese monastery. Bloodthirsty, but blind, the knights are released from their graves to hunt for fresh blood. The weary vacationers must now find a way to escape with their lives. Amando de Ossorio directs this 1971 horror thriller, which is the first installment in the Mark of the Devil series. De Ossorio is also credited with bringing the Eurohorror genre to mainstream popularity in the US. Tombs of the Blind Dead is truly a quintessential example of early zombie horror.
