Synopsis

In what many fans consider the most surprising of the four films in the series of the Blind Dead, Maria Perschy and Jack Taylor star in a chilling tale about a boatload of stranded swimsuit models who discover a mysterious ghost ship. But this phantom galleon carries the coffins of the satanic Templar, eyeless zombies who hunt humans by sound. Even the frightened lovelies can survive their own forbidden desires, will they escape the insatiable hunger of the Blind Dead?

Amando De Ossorio

Amando De Ossorio (A Coruña, Spain, 1918 - Madrid, Spain, 2001), after directing The Black Flag, a short film in 1956, spent the next few years doing documentaries and commercials. Afterwards a few westerns and comedies, in 1969 he moved into horror where he made his mark. In 1971, he came up with the concept of The Blind Dead, a cult of blind, undead templar knights who sucked human blood. The first film, Tombs of the Blind Dead, was successful so three more “Blind Dead” films followed in quick succession. Unfortunately his last horror film, The Sea Serpent (1984), was a disappointment to him due to the low budget special effects, and led him to retire from filmmaking in 1984, at the age of sixty-six.
