'Tombs of the Blind Dead' Hits the Big Screen at Metrograph in NYC Next Month

Following the release of their stunning limited edition 3-disc Steelbook, Synapse Films' new restoration of Amando de Ossorio's Tombs of the Blind Dead will be hitting the big screen at Metrograph in New York City on June 3rd as part of their "Fantaterror Español" series!

The first of de Ossorio’s Blind Dead tetralogy - the last, Night of the Seagulls, is also included in the aforementioned program - Tombs of the Blind Dead opens at a sunny seaside resort, then plunges into a dusky world of centuries-old terror, when a young woman flees a lover’s quarrel into an abandoned medieval town once ruled by Knights Templar who sold their souls to Satan for immortality, and who still ride out to terrorize the countryside by night.

"The revenant knights on horseback are among Fantaterror’s most indelible images, and the sense of immanent apocalypse recalls de Ossorio’s admitted inspiration, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead."

Tickets are on sale now for $17 each, but you can save up to $7 per ticket with Metrograph Membership, starting at only $5/month.

Metrograph's "Fantaterror Español" series also features screenings of rare spanish horror titles, such as Who Can Kill a Child?, The Cannibal Man, Arrebato, and more.
