Movie Info

Director Jesus Franco remade his 1965 thriller Miss Muerte as a pure exploitation piece in this Liechtenstein-produced film starring Diana Lorys. The film concerns Anne, a dancer at a Yugoslavian nightclub who moves in with a conniving lesbian named Cincia. Cincia is scheming with Anne's doctor to eliminate witnesses from a jewel robbery they committed, and she hypnotizes Anne to carry out the murders. Meanwhile, Anne has the sensation of going insane, as she is unsure whether the murders are nightmares or reality. In an increasingly frantic state, Anne commits suicide, forcing a showdown between Cincia and the doctor. This film features plentiful nudity involving cult favorites Soledad Miranda and Maria Rohm.

    An exotic dancer in a psychologically abusive lesbian relationship thinks she's going crazy when she has vivid nightmares in which she thinks she kills people. Typical Jess Franco Eurosleaze with careless plotting, failed attempts at arty camera shots, and naked women onscreen at almost all times.

    psychological erotic thriller from Jess Franco. As it's an erotic film there's nudity and sex every two minutes, but there's still an intriguing little plot that plays out to hold the interest if you're getting bored of the naked flesh on show. Of course this is no masterpiece - a word that I've yet to associate with a Jess Franco movie - but this still a decent movie with a small part for the beautiful Soledad Miranda.

    When things go bad in a Franco film, they really go bad. Even by Franco's standards, Nightmares Come at Night is a total bore. The plot deals with a woman who may be going insane. She has reoccurring dreams of killing people and cannot distinguish what's real and what's part of her dreams. But the plot is secondary to Nightmares Come at Night's primary purpose ? show as much nudity as possible( not a bad thing exactly but even that can become dull after a while). Most of the movie consists of Diana Lorys walking around with little or nothing on. I felt like screaming "Do Something!" at the screen. And it doesn't help that it's filmed in the most unimaginable way possible. To make matters worse, Franco introduces a diamond heist subplot in the final third of the movie and gives it little more than lip service. It adds nothing to the film. When you pick up the DVD, you would understandably think that Soledad Miranda was the star of Nightmares Come at Night. I mean it's her face on the DVD cover. However, as was the case with Lina Romay in Franco's The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein, Miranda has only 10 minutes of screen time. Plus, she has no connection with anything else in the movie. Her scenes were obviously filmed at a different time and location from the rest of the film. The 3 star rating I gave is for Soledad alone. We don't have enough films with her and this is one worth checking out due to her alone. So to sum up here, skip it unless your a diehard Soledad Miranda fan or Jess Franco movie junkie
