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.
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
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
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).
