    Further to the below comment, another alternate title for this film was "Revenge From Planet Ape", to cash in on the Planet of the Apes series where the distributors added a voiceover at the start claiming that the undead Knights Templar we were about to see were actually a race of apes who used to rule the world.
    Anyway, the film is very atmospheric and well shot, but it's often slow and with a very thin plot. The last few minutes are great and unexpected though, which helps make up for that.

    The English title is pretty confusing, as this is the first film in Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead series, and is totally unrelated to the 1970 German film Mark of the Devil. Fortunately Wikipedia shed some light into this: "Several VHS companies sought to exploit the title's notoriety by retitling several unrelated European horror films as sequels (including films from the popular Blind Dead series)". 7 years 4 months ago
