The Ghost Galleon
"The Ghost Galleon" (1974) is part of the "Blind Dead" series of horror films about undead Knights Templars. Directed by Amando de Ossorio and stars Maria Perschy and Jack Taylor.
This third film of the "Blind Dead" series is different to the others because it's set at sea on a ship. It begins with a photography shooting of models, and glam glitsy women who smoke cigarettes and don't know anything about a missing girl, a friend of one of the models. The first half of the film is slow and uncomfortable to watch, as a rape scene intensifies and two girls are left stranded at sea on a small boat. A 16th Century ghost ship appears through the fog, and one of the girls is eager to get on board. The other girl sleeps on the small boat throughout her friend's screaming coming from the ship. When she wakes up, she goes on board the ghost ship to look for her friend, and also disappears.
The rest of the film picks up and gets more interesting.
I rate this one 5/10.
The most awesome part: zombie knights emerging from the water.
