Mil Sexos tiene la noche
Nightmare and dream, a theme dear to our Jess Franco who in 1984
proposes it in this "Mil Sexos tiene la noche" which travels between
being a remake or a variation of "Les Cauchemars naissent la nuit" of
1974, already see in "Voodoo Passion" of 1977. Not to mention other
more or less obvious references to his films.
From Soledad Miranda through Muriel Montossè to Lina Romay,
protagonist of this 1984 film, in which it is noted; in addition to the
obvious ability to know how to choose the protagonists well, also that
the Spanish director is at ease with this theme. In an era in which,
his art was, not at the highest levels, he creates a pleasant job
making the feeling of nightmare / dream well, with good direction and a
Lina Romay always charming despite the fact that even the best times
have passed for her, is Irina, a telepathic who goes from club to club
with her boyfriend to show her mental faculties. One night, Irina
begins to suffer from nightmares in which she dreams of hot sexual
relations that end with a murder, while a mysterious voice calls her.
The boyfriend instead, prefers to read the "legendary" Necromicon
rather than being with her.
Nightmare? Dream? Reality? This confuses Irina, who strikes with a strange curved knife.
Few dialogues and the classic solar setting (Costa Del Sol and Las
Palmas) combined with a good cinematography by Franco himself, make
this film one of the ones to be saved in the decade of the Spanish
director, also considering that there is more eroticism and less sex
compared to his works from the same period.
The cast, in addition to an excellent Lina Romay, also sees Carmen
Carrión and Franco's usual (but useless) cameo, here in the role
of a psychiatrist.
