Description: A Jack the Ripper-type serial killer is loose in London. Suspicion falls on a transvestite judge.
“Night after Night after Night” is a sleazy and gritty British thriller from the 70’s that shamelessly covers all the until then known taboos. In fact, the movie exclusively deals with perverted and sleazy topics. There’s nudity aplenty, as well as misogynist violence and more perverted sicko-characters than you can wave a stick at. There’s a sadist killer at large in London, targeting attractive blond women between the ages 20 and 30. When Jenny, the wife of detective in charge Bill Rowan, becomes one of the victims, the grieving husband becomes obsessed with finding the culprit. He has a suspect but no evidence, and the more murders are being committed, the more it seems like Detective Rowan has a personal grudge against his suspect. Then there’s also the even more fascinating sub plot of an extremely puritan judge – sort of like a modern day version of Witchfinder General, as described by one of the characters – who condemns every prostitute to a maximum penalty and considers himself to be on a one-man crusade to rid society of the cancer called sex. Ironically enough, he has an assistant who’s a sex- addict and reads pornographic magazines in court. “Night after Night after Night” is a very sober and downbeat film. It’s sometimes even harshly unpleasant to look at, but it remains fascinating and creepy throughout. The film relies on great performances from a largely unfamiliar cast and a very courageous script that is quite ahead of its time.
