Curse of the Blind Dead (2020) User Review
So what was this supposed to be? A tribute to the 1972 “Tombs of the Blind Dead” movei? A tribute? A sequel? A stand-alone movie with only the shared title?
Regardless of its intention, the 2020 movie “Curse of the Blind Dead” was not really an outstanding movie. Especially since it was lacking a proper storyline. The plot and script was so weak that you could easily leave the movie for a prolonged time – say a bathroom break, snack break, etc. – and come back later and not have been missing out on anything vital to the storyline. Because there simply was nothing vital to the storyline.
Director Raffaele Picchio just shambled through the storyline at an incredibly slow pace, which really didn’t do much to spruce up the overall enjoyment of the movie. In fact, the slow pacing was just helping to make the movie all the more unbearable to sit through.
However, I managed to do that, sit through the entire movie. But trust me, I was by no means entertained here. But still, being a zombiesque movie, of course I sat through the movie to the end.
I will say that while the movie was just plain boring, then “Curse of the Blind Dead” actually had adequate effects, both for the templar zombies and for the blood and gore. And that, at least, counted for something, but it just couldn’t make up for the shortcomings on an improper storyline and script.
The acting in the movie was adequate, taking into consideration the total lack of proper characters, script and dialogue.
All in all, there really is no reason for bothering sitting down to watch the 2020 “Curse of the Blind Dead” movie. I am rating it a generous three out of ten stars, and that is solely based on the blood, gore and special effects.
