Two exotic dancers embark on a erotic friendship which takes a turn when one of them begins having recurring nightmares of her killing people in which the line between realty and fantasy begins to blur to the most extreme.
In Zagreb, the striper Anna de Istria works in a sleazy cabaret. She is seduced by the blonde Cynthia Robins 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 to treat Ana. Meanwhile, a couple that lives in the house next door spies the movement in Cynthia's house. Written by

This movie is a Mish Mash of two different unfinished Jess Franco movies. One with Paul Muller from 1969, the other with Soledad Miranda from 1970. See more »
When Anna is watching the couple dancing, the woman has a purple top on. Halfway through, it pans to Anna and then back to the couple, where the woman has a skin-color shirt on. Again panning back to Anna and then the couple, the woman has the purple shirt back on. See more »
Boring and Dull Exploitation with a Predictable and Disappointing Story
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")
