In the late Middle Ages, the inhabitants of a small village killed the Templar knights by burning them, but first also burnt their eyes out, so if they, should they ever return to life (they were satanists you know), they wouldn't be able to find their way to the village. 

500 years later, Jack (Tony Kendall) is hired to set up a firework for the celebration of burning the Templars - & much to his surprise, among the villagers he finds his ex-girlfriend Vivian (Esperanza Roy), who is still in love with him, but he also finds trouble as neither the mayor nor his right hand man are willing to give up Vivian. 

& when he sneaks away with Vivian to shag her amidst some ruins, they are interrupted by half-crazed hunchback Murdo (José Canalejas), who tells them about the Templars' curse & their return that very night. Though they don't believe Murdo, Jack & Vivian decide to make a quick getaway during the festivities, but alas, the Templars have already risen from their tombs, as Monica (Loreta Tovar) scared out of her mind tells them when they pick her up on a street out of the village, only to have her tale confirmed when the Templars charge after her on their horses. 

Soon they are in the village, slaughtering almost everybody who joins the celebrations & only a handful (among them Jack, Vivian, the mayor & his right hand man) survive in town hall. But the mayor has embezzled some money & sees the confusion as a perfect opportunity to get away with it, soon devicing plans that cost many of the village's survivors' lives - & finally his own. Then his right hand man decides to rape Vivian, since he probably won't live to see another day anyways, & wants to make the best of it, but he is killed by Jack. 

At daybreak only Jack, Vivian & a little girl are left, & they decide to make another escape attempt, only to discover that all the Templars have turned lifeless again & crumble to dust when touched.

 

Unfortunately, the second of the Blind Dead movies doesn't share the raw & primitive intensity of its predecessor, La Noche del Terror Ciego, instead telling a very conventional horror tale that owes much to Night of the Living Dead (without reaching its brilliance) & differs little from other Euro-horror of its time. 

As such, it's not bad though, if definitely on the trashy side (as of course much of Euro-horror was back then).
