Editorial Reviews

Unnerved after a trip to Northern Italy, Pete Abbott wallows in The Beautiful, The Bloody, and the Bare when he becomes a New York nudie photographer. Trouble is, the color red sometimes so upsets him that he starts killing his models! From the director of Teenage Gang Debs, here's one of the earliest films to mix nudity with then excessive bloodshed to create what would be best called a gory-nudie-cutie. Plus: When their car is deliberately drained of gas, sexy Ann Henderson and semi-lesbian friend Terry Wilson seek help at the house of creepy ex-mortician Dr. Bradley (a dead ringer for Henry Kissinger). But once Behind Locked Doors, the girls instead become the unwilling victims of Bradley's psychotic sex research: "I am looking for the perfect love mate!" Worse, if Ann and Terry don't cooperate, they'll join the women embalmed and on display in Bradley's "memorial exhibition room!" With sordid shocks and skin, here are two psychotic sickies direct from the demented vaults of Drive-In King Harry Novak (Axe)!

Even the plentiful nudity doesn't work.
Edward D. Terhune
I don't mind the lack of full frontal nudity, but this film went to agonizing extremes to avoid it.
Stewart the Wise
It is still a great grindhouse movie, but I was hoping for more.

In case the titles did not make it clear, this Something Weird DVD offers up another pair of exploitation films from the 1960s, in which we combine nude women with homicidal maniacs. "The Beautiful, the Bloody, and the Bare" (1964) is the first film written and directed by Sande N. Johnsen. Leo runs an art studio where nude models pose for his students, and he takes great pains in the monotonous voiceovers to explain what makes a good model (the key is how smoothly they change positions). Then his friend Peter (Jack Jowe) shows up, fresh from bumming around Europe, and Leo helps out by letting Peter take photographs of models at the studio. But then one model paints her nails red and Peter is on his way to jumping off the deep end.

When television first started and everybody was thrilled by watching a visual medium in the comfort of their own home, one of the earliest shows was "Photographic Horizons," which showed models posing so that viewers at home could take photographs of them right off the screen. This movie reminded me of that, because for most of it there are shots of nude women posing. Then the movie remembers that there is this horror element to it and Peter ends up doing more to his models than taking their pictures. To be fair, Peter is as freaked out by the color red when it is his own blood as when it belongs to anybody else, but you have to think that it is hard to walk through New York City without seeing a lot of red, you know? The credits for this film promise some of New York's top models and you have to agree that the women you see are quite good at their craft.

"Behind Locked Doors" is a 1968 film from producer Harry H.

It's hard to go wrong with the Something Weird line of DVDs. They cram so much material onto one DVD that it's a bargain by any standards. This one is a decided mixed bag. I bought it primarily for the "Behind Locked Doors" feature. I discovered this movie accidently in 1989 when a video store owner I knew was selling the videotape off at a discount price. I had never heard of the movie before, but I loved it. Completely zany, illogical, and bizarre. The acting is abysmal, the plot absurd...and yet, despite such deficiencies, it still manages to exert a quirky, even hypnotic spell all its own. Apparently filmed somewhere in upstate NY during the mid or late 1960's, I find myself wondering as I watch it compulsively yet again- is that house still standing? Are these actors still alive and, if so, what are they doing now? Do they ever acknowledge that they appeared in this? Is that field still in existence or is it a housing development by now? As for the 1st movie...the less said, the better. But, in spite of my own better judgement, here goes...It also suffers from horrible, wooden acting, writing, directing, etc., but its most egregious failing, its most unpardonable sin, is that it's BORING! It doesn't have the wacky, redemptive qualities of an Ed Wood script or the cartoonish violence of a Hershell Gordon Lewis to stave off total numbness or actors so flagrantly awful that they're fascinating to watch in spite of themselves. Even the plentiful nudity doesn't work. Indeed, I think it might prove soporific even to a 14-year old boy entering the heat of adoloscence. In fact, outside of a few scenes filmed on NY streets circa 1964, there's absolutely nothing to recommend about this film. So, buy the DVD for "Behind Locked Doors" and the added features. Like I said, you really can't go wrong with the Something Weird line. If one thing doesn't grab you, something else will.

I've become a Something Weird fan.

I've seen the extra features and I liked them.

I've watched BB&B and it was interesting enough. I'll get around to BLD later.

I only have one serious complaint with the first feature. I know this is an older film and the nudity is a funny thing. There is a ton of toplessness. There are lots of backside views.

I don't mind the lack of full frontal nudity, but this film went to agonizing extremes to avoid it. The actresses are fully nude and the lengths they went to in order to avoid a crotch shot really stressed me out.

This is a double feature DVD containing the movies The Beautiful, The Bloody, and The Bare(65mins/1964) and Behind Locked Doors(80mins/1968). The first feature is about a New York Nudie photographer who goes wacko at the sight of red. The whole thing is just to show a bunch of naked chicks getting photographed. The second flick is about a deranged old ex-mortician who lives out in the middle of nowhere with his sister and does some kooky experiments with naked young women.

There are 9 trailers(The Beautiful, The Bloody, & The Bare, Behind Locked Doors, Tender Flesh, B.J. Lang, Color Me Blood Red, Blood Bath,, Pets, The Sinful Dwarf, The Captive Female) along with 4 'nudie-cutie' type short subjects. These include Part-time Pin-up(9mins), Playgirl Models(19mins), Sex Workshop(10mins), and Sexycises(10mins). There is also a Gallery of Harry Novak Exploitation Art(4mins) & Photos(8mins) with Soundtrack Greatest Hits.

Sex Workshop contains that mix of sexy girls and wacky humor that was common in early 60's sexploitation material. The humor comes mainly from a dwarf-like 'winoman' who crossdresses in order to get into the workshop. All the short-subjects contain naked girls and more naked girls. Harry Novak's large collection of poster and photo memorabilia is a drive-in nostalgia fest. Good DVD to view old nonsensical movies with a ton of naked young chicks.
