Vela para el Diablo, Una (1973, SPA) C-68m. ** D: Eugenio Martín. Starring Judy Geeson, Lone Fleming, Blanca Estrada, Charley Pineiro, Victor Alcázar. Two shrewd, sexually starved sisters run a small pension in a tourist village. When young Geeson comes looking for her missing sister, it turns out that the two landladies dispose of what they think are indecent, immoral people. Rather poorly plotted thriller becomes watchable only towards the end. Longer version reportedly in existence, but it's doubtful whether it's an improvement. English titles: A CANDLE FOR THE DEVIL, NIGHTMARE HOTEL, and IT HAPPENED AT NIGHTMARE INN.
