Messy, Lame and Crazy
24 February 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The butler of the writer Maxime de Borrego (Roberto Bruni) goes to the store of an old lady and tells that his boss probably knows the location of the Templars treasure, expecting to receive a reward. The old lady is actually the ruthless criminal The Man without a Face (Jacques Champreux), the master of disguise that wears a red mask. He tortures and kills Maxime without getting any answer about the location of the treasure.

Maxime's nephew, the sailor Paul de Borrego (Ugo Pagliai), returns from a trip and teams up with his girlfriend, her best friend, with Inspector Sorbier (Gert Froebe) and his team trying to arrest the evil criminal. But The Man without a Face uses a sort of human zombies created his insane doctor and his gorgeous assistant (Gayle Hunnicutt) that wears a mask and outfits similar to the Catwoman to lure the police and achieve his intent.

"Nuits rouges" is a messy, lame and crazy low-budget movie directed by Georges Franju. The Man without a Face is visibly inspired in Fantomas, but the adventure is too silly and the acting is very poor. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Noites Vermelhas" ("Red Nights")
