Boring and Dull Exploitation with a Predictable and Disappointing Story
6 September 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Zagreb, the striper Anna de Istria (Diana Lorys) works in a sleazy cabaret. She is seduced by the blonde Cynthia Robins (Colette Jack) that invites her to move to her house. Ana is disturbed by nightmares, where she kills a man with a spear, and Cynthia calls Dr. Paul Lucas (Paul Muller) to treat Ana. Meanwhile, a couple that lives in the next door house spies the movement in Cynthia's house.

"Les Cauchemars Naissent la Nuit" is a boring and dull exploitation by Jess Franco with a predictable and disappointing story. To make it worse, the DVD released in Brazil by Continental Distributor is awfully dubbed in English and there are dramatic scenes that become laughable. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Pesadelos Noturnos" ("Nocturne Nightmares")
