Blind Girl in the Tavern


In the tavern where Kronos fights the three swordsmen, there's a blind girl (played by Gigi Gurpinar) sitting by the door. In both tavern scenes (the scene with the prostitute and the scene with the duel), the camera keeps cutting to her, leading the audience to assume she's important in some way -- but then she disappears from the film without playing any part in the plot.

Did I miss an important detail or implication here? Did her sub-plot end up on the cutting-room floor? Or is she just part of the film's atmosphere? (Or a red herring for me to puzzle over?)

I think she is there for atmosphere!

She's there to mess with your mind and get you to think that maybe you missed something.

As much as I didnt like this film, I think the blind girl was just a red herring.

I saw Captain Kronos for the first time only recently. The blind girl reminded me of the Witch Woman in Hawk the Slayer.

Originally I thought the blind girl was just there to add some background colour, but I suppose it's possible that if further Kronos adventures had followed (as was originally planned) then the girl might have made further appearances, perhaps eventually being revealed as either an enemy or ally of Kronos.

Perhaps she is a manifestation of Justice. An eternal who randomly travels the earth forever.

She was young and probably beautyful. Yet unattacked. She was blind and therefore immune to the vampires hypnosis. The hypnosis makes them forget christ and the cross then stops protecting them. The doctor says so.

I was confused about her presence as well. I'm glad I visited this thread for some possible explanations.
