"Mil Sexos Tiene La Noche" is yet another first-rate Jess Franco film, again shot on a very low budget with the director getting the maximum from the location, his photography, and his stable of actors. Much of the film appears to have been filmed in or near a hotel, a common staple of many Franco films, and to keep the viewer's eyes from being bored by all of the darkness Franco treats us to beautifully-filmed bodies of water, bodies of lovemakers, flower gardens, indoor scenery, and human silhouettes. Other than Franco, the other strong element of the film is Lina Romay, who, as usual, gives a performance so convincing and thoughtful you'd think her life was at stake if she failed to deliver. She goes from being dowdy and frumpy in some scenes to being a sometimes frightened, sometimes stunningly beautiful protagonist. As this film is a remake of Franco's "Voodoo Passion" (1977) the plot is not difficult to comprehend, and non-Spanish-speaking viewers should not be offput because 64 of the film's 92 minutes have no dialog whatsoever. This was probably filmed simultaneously with Franco's "Historia Sexual de O" as, in the opening scene of "Mil Sexos . . ." three of the actors are wearing the same clothes they wear in the menacing dinner-table scene of "Historia Sexual. . ." Carmen Carrion and Daniel Katz, who appear in both films, are perfectly cast as totally evil users of the weaker-minded in both films, and both deliver suitably frightening performances.
