Return of the Evil Dead (1973)
|Title:||Return of the Evil Dead|
|Director:||Amando de Ossorio|
I watched this movie on 10/09/2011 at/on/via DVD.
This followup to Tombs of the Blind Dead is the second of four Blind Dead movies that came out of Spain in the 1970s.
Known by a number of names including its original title, Attack of the Blind Dead, and Mark of the Devil 5: Return of the Blind Dead, the second in the series isn't quite as well executed as the first, but still has a lot going for it.
The undead, blind Knights Templar are pretty damn creepy and the movie as a whole features a healthy amount of garish bloodiness so emblematic of euro horror from the seventies.
Most, if not all, of the main protagonists are unlikeable, which explains why I was cheering for the knights to do them all in.
I've got the next two movies in the series on the way from Netflix as well, so we'll see how they compare to the first two.
