Irina (Lina Romay) and Fabián (Daniel Katz) are a top psychic nightclub act, one of the kind where he fishes random objects out of the audiencemember's pockets, and she, blindfolded, has to tell the audience what he's holding. What makes their performance better than most others is the fact that she plays the psychic quite so believable, and adds some drama to her performance - and judging from her dreams, she might really be a psychic ... or at least believe she's one.

Eventually, she starts dreaming that she picks up random men, has sex with them and then stabs them to death. The dreams feel so real she even believes she's a murderer. But Fabián calms her down, blames everything on her imagination, and on himself, claiming he hasn't given her enough attention, sexually, lately ... but every time they almost have sex, he finds an excuse to leave ...

Of course, Fabián is really behind all the murders, he is an actual magician who has cast some kind of hypnotic spell on her, to kill in his name and the name of Princess Lorna (Carmen Carrión). When Irina grows suspicious, Fabián tells her she's only confused and sends her to a psychiatrist (Jess Franco) who will surely confirm her confusion.

It's only in the finale that Irina finds out the truth, but hey, she might have been used as a mere tool, but technically, it was indeed her who killed all those people ... and now Fabián and Lorna want to kill her and claim it was self defense - when the police, led by Irina's psychiatrist, interferes to arrest Fabián and Lorna. You see, the psychiatrist treated Fabián as well and knew about his twisted mind ...

 

With a filmography as rich as Jess Franco's, which spans over 150 movies, it's only natural that certain motives repeat themselves, and Franco was known for doing updates or remakes of or at least variations on his earlier films - and he has filmed a story similar to Mil Sexos Tiene la Noche at least twice before, as Nightmares Come at Night and Voodoo Passion, both films with their definite flaws. And Mil Sexos Tiene la Noche, which once again marries favourite Franco mainstays eroticism and surrealism, horror and pulp, isn't perfect either. On one hand, Franco once again proves his talent in capturing architecture in its most atmospheric way, proves to have a definite eye for fashion and set design (both of which is very reminiscent of the 1970's in this one), and proves that even though his zooms and pans might be bumpy at times, he puts care in the composition of his images. Plus, he certainly knows how to score a film.

That aside though, the film has a few too many flaws to be even borderline perfect: First and foremost, it moves way too slowly, while at the same time giving away most of its story way too soon. And when it comes to nudity and sex, it simply doesn't go far enough (by mid-1980's standards) - sure there's nudity aplenty, but Franco isn't even half as voyeuristic or as enjoyably perverted as in his earlier movies. And finally, the film lacks actual highlights, memorable setpieces and the like.

Still, Mil Sexos Tiene la Noche doesn't look too bad in Franco's uneven output, especially since the director shows ambition and talent here, it's simply neither among his best films, nor among his much trashier gems which so many of us (me included) have learned to enjoy.
