Today’s Sunday Scares feature is another example of what fans can do for something they love…
ISLAND OF THE BLIND DEAD is a fan made faux feature film trailer which pays homage to Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972).
The short is the brain child of film makers Emma Dark (Dark Morte) and Merlyn Roberts. Both Emma and Merlyn are huge horror and Tombs of the Blind Dead fans.
This homage was made whilst holidaying in St. George South, Corfu. It came as a last minute brain wave after several days trapped inside during storms and was never intended to have high production values, as such it does look rather the part though! A huge thanks to the local amateur dramatics society who enthusiastically welcomed the idea and did a fantastic job of bringing their characters to life on screen.
Island of the Blind Dead imagines there may have been a fifth film in the series, which then became lost, the trailer subsequently recovered and restored some years later.
