Critic Reviews for Tombs Of The Blind Dead (Noche del terror ciego)

All Critics (7)

While nearly all of the Italian zombie films were one shade of awful or another, Tombs is a good film, even a great one: one of the highlights of 1970s Spanish cinema and among the very best examples of its oft-indefensible genre.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Paces along with a sense of business-as-usual obligation when it would benefit most from turning the trash meter up to eleven.

an elegiac counter-vision that is much more fanciful than Night of the Living Dead dand wholly continental.

Audience Reviews for Tombs Of The Blind Dead (Noche del terror ciego)

A film directed by Amando de Ossorio one of the many he followed up with. The tomb raiders costumes are old school, but in 1970 they must have been top of the line. Not a real scary horror by today standards. A cult who rises from the dead and worships the devil reins terror on a couple and kills there friend. 3 stars

A drive-in classic. At least three different edits are circulating; the original director's cut, an "American Version" (less skin, no lesbians), and "Planet Ape" version designed to capitalize on the Planet of the Apes craze.

There are aactually several different "Blind Dead" films to enjoy, this is the first one that I saw. The actual "blind dead" creatures are kinda cool and very creepy (in an old school sort of way) the other eliments of these films are just HORRIBLE. Several minutes of woman screaming as the creature slowly approach...bad dubbing...I could go on. But a fun late night film none the less.
