"Tombs of the Blind Dead"
Directed by Amando de Ossorio
Spanish auteur Ossorio
made his name in the '70s Spanish horror genre with this tale of horrific and malefic
reanimated mummified corpses of 13th-century Templar knights who seek victims through
sound alone and drink human blood in order to sustain their own damned existence. The
superb, highly influential score by Anton Garcia Abril helps underline the stunning
visuals. Despite the trite storylines and hammy acting, "the Templars make Ossorio's
grisly, heart-string quartet more than worth the effort, galloping to the rescue of the
viewer's sanity like a spectral cavalry charge" (Nigel J. Burrell, March 1995).
Digitally remastered collector's edition presented in its original uncut form. Spanish
with English subtitles.
