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.

Completely wonderful. Did anybody else pick up on how Twin Peaks the last 20 minutes are?
this one's probably good for playing in the background at a party for people too high/drunk for conversation, and not much else
Very slow and low budget movie. No scares. bad acting, bad costumes, bad effects. More of some type of sci-fi or cult movie than anything else. Went from 1 skull to 2 skull only because the french love to show women's boobs a lot.
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
