Night of the Seagulls (1975)

The fourth and final of Ossorio's Blind Dead series sees a country doctor and his wife move into a closely knit rural town on the coast where they witness mysterious rituals in the night. None of the previous films have held any continuity with the others, except for the appearance of the undead Knights Templar. This one is no different, but it does have a plot which involves more than a simple trespass to set off their resurrection. A story with more mystique and sympathetic characters is a welcome addition. Unfortunately, the film holds no more secrets with its usual amount of heightened gore and pacing as slow as molasses.
