Tombs of the Blind Dead

1971 PG

In the 13th century, evil knights known as the Templars -- who sought eternal life by drinking human blood -- were executed and left exposed so that birds could peck out their eyes. But when a group of people in 1970s Portugal stumble on the knights' abandoned monastery, they unleash their rotting corpses to terrorize the land. This chilling film is the first installment of writer-director Amando de Ossorio's four-part horror masterpiece.
