Jess Franco's "Night Has a Thousand Desires" Makes It Your Desire on Blu-Ray

In this surreal and sensuous mystery/noir, Lina Romay (The Female Vampire, Lorna the Exorcist) plays Irina, a partner in a male-female mind reading act. At night she experiences vivid and sexually charged dreams which end in murder. It seems that the people whose minds she reads are being killed off one by one.
In the 1980s, after the death of the Spanish dictator, Jess Franco returned to his native country and made a series of films in which he was given almost total freedom, so long as they featured a number of erotic sequences. Night Has a Thousand Desires is one of the most artistically successful of these films. It's filled with familiar Franco touches - artful cinematography, atmospheric locations, naked women, an avant garde soundtrack - and it features one of Lina Romay's most committed performances.
