The Ghost Galleon is a Spanish horror film written and directed by Amando de Ossorio and is part of ‘The Blind Dead’ series that uses the Knights Templar as sightless zombies that hunt by sound.
A publicity stunt taking place on the ocean goes wrong when an ancient galleon drifts into view. The boats contains the zombified corpses of the Knights Templar. Needless to say everyone thinks it is a great idea to board the ship…and then the problems start.
This film is the third film in the Blind Dead series, and tends to polarize opinion – some fans love it, some think it is the weakest of the series.
The special effects are definitely weak, but the general atmosphere of the film helps to make up for it.
The film is also known as ‘El buque maldito’ and ‘Horror of the Zombies‘.
