Night of 1000 Sexes


by Tuna

Mil Sexos Tiene la Noche is a Spanish horrotica offering which was directed by Jess Franco, starring his significant other and frequent leading lady, Lina Romay.

Lina and a partner have a nightclub mentalist act, where she is hypnotized, then is able to tell what he is holding in his hand. Each night, she has sex with someone, then kills the man in the room with a knife. Note that the sex is not always with a man, but it is only men that she ventilates with the knife. She wants to believe these are bad dreams, but it is hard for her to rationalize being covered in blood, and having a bloody knife when she becomes conscious.

The pace is leisurely. One viewer described it as hypnotic, rather than erotic, but all in all, Jess was in rare form on this film, which deserves a tip of the hat for some of the camera work. Of course, Franco made his usual use of the zoom, but he also did some very clever things with selectively focusing and unfocusing, and dissolving from scene to scene. He also made good use of his surroundings as filler footage and employed some nice jazz numbers in the nightclub scenes. (Franco is a huge jazz fan and a composer himself.)

To my knowledge, this film has never been available on a DVD in the English language. It is available on an all-region DVD in Spanish, with no subtitles. It's light on dialogue anyway, so it is not difficult to figure out what is going on.
