Jess Franco Poster Art - Part 34

I just caught up with THE SINISTER EYES OF DR. ORLOFF (1973) via Derodo Films' Blu-Ray release and was a little surprised to discover it is pretty much the same story as Franco's 1972 film NIGHTMARES COME AT MIDNIGHT. Oh, there are some differences involving family relations, revenge and an inheritance but the last half of one film is strikingly similar to the other. This isn't really a surprise as Franco often recycled ideas, characters and plots from one film to another. But it did freak me out a bit because I kept wondering if I was watching a film I had already seen or not. The details were enough off that I eventually realized what was going on but it was a little disconcerting.
