The blind dead are never referred to as "Templar Knights" or "Caballeros Templarios" in the original Spanish language version. They are referred to as "los Guerreros de Oriente" ("The Warriors from the Orient"). See more »
During the films intro titles, the camera is looking around the "abandoned" ruins of the Templars monastery. In one shot, a van with a ladder strapped to its roof-rack can be seen going across a bridge in the background, at the top of the picture. See more »
A dubbed English language version was made for US drive in theaters during the 70's entitled "The Blind Dead". This version was quite heavily edited for an R rating, which heavily toned down the bloodier scenes and removed the rape sequence in the graveyard in its entirety. It also moved a flashback sequence which had originally occurred about 50mins into the film, showing the templars sacrificing a young maiden, to the beginning of the film. This version is included on the US DVD from Blue Underground along with the uncut Spanish language version. See more »
The skeletons on horses in slow motion was epic man. Decent atmospheric horror film n the best in the series.
I had seen only one film from the blind dead series (Return of the blind/evil dead) in the mid 80s on a VHS. I saw this just few days back on a DVD. The story is about 2 girls n one guy who goes on a weekend trip. Sounds erotic huh. Don't get your hopes high. On the train ride there, one of the girl is overcome with jealousy and jumps off the train, deciding to spend the night in some nearby ruins. Wtf? It is a horror film n so the ruins are home of the blind dead knights who were into some satanic rituals until angry villagers killed them n left them for the crows to peck their eyes out. Some decent cinematography. It is an effective atmospheric film. The locations were really good. The abandoned n ruined village in the middle of nowhere, the endless fields, the only single train running n always passing by the ruins n the best part- the slow motion shots of the knights riding their horses in pursuit of their victims. When the knights r on the foot, they r slower than the snails but suddenly out of nowhere they get their horses n once they r on their horses, they ride faster in slow motions. Very creepy though. The skeletons, with their dark, odd beard hair features, actually look as if they've risen from their graves. Good effects.
