In 1971, director Amando de Ossorio created what horror fans worldwide consider to be Spain's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. In Ossorio's nightmare vision, a legion of Knights Templar - executed horsemen whose eyes had been pecked out by crows - rise rotting from their graves, hunting only by sound in a quest for human flesh. The BLIND DEAD saga begins here, as a modern-day tourist trip to the ruins of the Templar monastery unleashes a frenzy of lesbian desire, sexual violence and the unholy onslaught of the eyeless undead!

This Definitive Edition of TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD - the first of the four BLIND DEAD movies -has been fully restored from pristine negative materials and transferred in eye-popping High Definition.

Virginia White, a young woman bumps into Betty, an old school friend of hers, at the hotel pool where she’s spending the weekend together with her boyfriend, Roger, who spontaneously invites Betty to join them on a trip to the countryside. On the train, Virginia soon becomes jealous of Betty as Roger takes an immediate interest in her attractive friend. Uncertain what to do, Virginia decides to leave the two and ignoring the frantic warnings of her travelling companions, she jumps off the train, determined to spend the night at village which she had spotted in the distance.

She reaches the village and discovers that the place is deserted. Virginia beds down in what must have been the local monastery. Around midnight, the earth begins to shake and ancient tombs open, revealing the mummified corpses of old warriors.

These are the Knights Templar, once members of a medieval sect, practicing occult blood rituals, and now cursed and hooded eyeless zombies, hunting the living by the sound of their terrified heartbeats. Slowly and threateningly they advance toward Virginia who tries to run away. The hideous Blind Dead pursue the screaming young woman, finally dragging her to the ground. Virginia gives out a final shriek of terror....

In the meantime, Betty and Roger are getting increasingly concerned for the safety of Virginia and decide to go and look for her...
