Horror of the Zombies otherwise known as The Ghost Galleon is the third movie in the Blind Dead franchise and presently the lowest rated on IMDB.
I loved the first film, I found the second rather disappointing and this deserves its place as the lowest rated.
It tells the story of two women out on the ocean who run into a huge galleon. Upon investigating they fall afoul of the Blind Dead and their employers come looking for them.
The ship setting was a great idea and had limitless potential but sadly the whole thing is a real sorry swing and a miss.
For a start everything looks shoddy, the sfx have taken a step backwards and look terrible. The ominous charm of the franchise is all but gone and truth be told very little actually happens and our ocularly challenged undead friends are barely on screen at all.
I can't believe such a great franchise is nose diving so badly, I can only hope the finale ends it on a high but it's not looking good.
The Ghost Galleon is a weak entry and an all round pretty lame film.
Some great ideas
Timeline is still confusing
Lacks everything that made the first movie so effective
Some beyond bad sfx
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
A petrol fueled motor boat cannot move out the way of slow moving incoming traffic
Religious scientists, still the most baffling oxymoron
The Ghost Galleon
The Ghost Galleon
The model Noemi questions her employer Lillian about her roommate Kathy that is missing after receiving a call from Lillian, and she tells that she will go to the police. Lilian explains that Kathy is in an afloat boat in the Atlantic with another model participating of a publicity stunt, and she brings Noemi to meet Howard Tucker and his henchman Sergio that have idealized the advertising campaign. Kathy uses the radio to report that a ghost galleon without crew has arrived and Tucker sends a helicopter to bring the models back; however the pilot does not find them at the location. Tucker contacts Professor Grüber that studies the Sixteen Century galleon and they use a boat to reach the ghost vessel with Sergio, Lillian and Noemi. Soon Professor Gruber learns that the damned galleon is stranded in another dimension and the crew is composed of excommunicated Templar zombies. Now they try to leave the galleon and return to their own dimension. Will they succeed in their intent?
