The Nude Vampire
Directed by Jean Rollin
A man discovers his father runs a cult which keeps a woman prisoner. When Pierre investigates, he learns papa’s prisoner is a vampire, and the cult hopes to harness her lifeforce in order to achieve immortality. Things get complicated when Pierre falls for the vampire, and winds up caught in a war between the cult and the vampires trying to rescue his lover. Jean Rollin’s first true full-length feature (following the split-story RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE) displays all the director’s cinematic obsessions: conspiracies, surrealism and ravishing vampire vixens.

Cast: Caroline Cartier, Olivier Rollin, Maurice Lemaître
Slowly paced but reminiscent of other 70s era Satanic cult exploitation films, imo. Not bad. Not terrible. Won't be everyone's cup of tea.
Contains aspects of: Occult, Horror Romance, Horror/sci fi, A campy genre film that would be of interest to those that are fascinated by surreal occult films. Overall unsettling rating: 2/5 Over-the-top rating: 3/5
Everything you'd expect from a 1970 French low budget movie ... and less. Acting is fairly awful, costume and special effects at a high school level, story could have been better, however I can't give it only one skull ... I've seen current movies with 10x the budget so much wose. PS ... not a vampire movie.
