Movie Info

This is the third installment in Amando de Ossorio's "Blind Dead" series featuring the legions of the undead Knights Templar -- a sect of medieval monks who were executed in the 15th century for their occult practices and who periodically rise from their tombs to torment the living. This chapter puts the Templars on a ghostly Spanish galleon (which looks like it was built from a ship-in-a-bottle kit), cloaked in perpetual fog and roaming the seas in search of victims. When two bikini models are set adrift as part of a sporting-good chain's publicity stunt, they are seized by the flesh-eating ghouls. The company's frantic CEO sets out in his yacht to find them, accompanied by the head of the modeling agency, one of the models' friends, and an expert on Templar lore. They eventually collide with the galleon, whereupon the meandering plot finally gets down to business. The blind, slow-moving zombies shamble up from below decks and wait patiently, as always, for their shrieking, flailing victims to stumble into their clutches. This is one of the creepier entries in the series, making good use of the confined, fog-shrouded sets (presaging very similar scenes in John Carpenter's The Fog), and only wavers during long shots of the cheesy-looking model ship. The shock ending is also remarkably effective. Followed by the final chapter, Night of the Seagulls. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for El Buque Maldito (The Ghost Galleon)(Ship of Zombies)(Horror of the Zombies)

This film came from the Mill Creek Drive In Movie Classics 50 Pack, which is kind of a surprise as its a decent film. Its also part of the Blind Dead Cult Series. In this one 2 girls are in the middle of the ocean on a small motor boat acting stranded in hopes of being rescued when the come across a 16th century Spanish Gallon, One climbs aboard the ship to see if anyone is aboard. This is a little comical of a movie, as she finds a transistor radio while on this 16th century ship. Also onboard are skeletons with hooded capes. Not sure these are really zombies as we never see them eat anyone people just disappear. All in all its worth the watch, something you would expect on chiller theater. 4 Stars

This came on Saturday Nightmares years ago on the USA Network and terrified me for weeks. This is probably the best "Blind Dead" movie of them all.

A bit weak, a little uneven, but still pretty eerie. The effects are cheap yet effective, and the Dead are pretty fun to watch on screen. The characters aren't too great, the plot is a bit slow, and the dubbing isn't perfect. The atmosphere is the real winner here. Overall, it's a decent little horror movie. Stands up pretty well with the rest of the series.
