Product Description

A previously lost sleaze masterpiece from cult director Luigi Batzella (The Beast in Heat) and starring Rita Calderoni (Delerium, Black Magic Rites). A man who seeks help for an injured women at a gothic castle finds it inhabited by their darker halves and a sex-craved arachnid with a taste for stockings and sadomasochism. This is Italian gothic with dollops of seventies style chock-a-block with lesbianism, whippings, black magic and dubious haircuts. A truly jaw-dropping horror/exploitation film from one of the most prominent directors of Italian sleaze cinema. Anamorphically Enhanced.


It delivers the exploitation goods, with plentiful female nudity and a couple of 'lesbian' scenes --Kinocite

Several times while watching 'Nude For Satan' I had to pinch myself. Am I REALLY watching this or has someone spiked my drink?! --imdb

This one definitely lives up to its title, and horror and sleaze buffs should be wickedly delighted to see such an obscure, devilish title appearing on America's retail shelves... another astonishing rescue by Redemption from the jaws of oblivion --Mondo-Digital

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird but fascinating Euro-sleeze horror July 11, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
The sight of a woman in white gown spread open, running full frontal through the woods has got to be a good sign, coming as it does in Nude For Satan's opening moments.
On his way to a house call, racing down the highway in his VW bug, Doctor William Benson nearly has an accident as he sees the woman in white standing in the middle of the road. As he is recovering from his near miss, he hears a crash behind him. He finds a Mini with the woman inside injured, presumably for the same reason as he. He puts Susan in his car and goes for help. Note: how did he know her name later? He didn't go through her purse or anything that I could see.
He finds a castle and enters. The place is a deserted and decrepit place. He sees a painting of a woman, then finds that woman rushing to greet him. To his surprise, it's none other than the woman he rescued, except she calls him Peter. She's also more carefree and happy, and she ends up seducing him. She also spouts some puzzling words on memory and time: "What is memory but a fraction of time wrapped in the parentheses of the past?" Wow, sounds like dialogue from Dr. Who, Colin Baker era. And also, "The past is not in time anymore, and time is silence. There is no space here for memories--it's always now."
Meanwhile, Susan, apparently recovered, goes to the castle, where she is invited in by a mysterious man in black. He welcomes her in but there's a sinister air about him, as he momentarily undresses her with a glance of his eyes. A hallucination or no? She sees a painting of a man who looks like William, except he's dressed in 19th century clothes. She runs into him, and he not only calls her Evelyn, but acts like a buffoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nude, Nude, Nude March 9, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With the title of the movie, there is no doubt you will get to see nudity, but this film is much better than that. It is the best non-Jean Rollin film in the DVD Redemption line, and the only one in my collection other than the Rollin films.
Surreal, creepy, the lovely Rita Calderoni, in her most nude role, and all the campy goth and eerie locations and characters that a classic 70's sexploitation horror film should be. A classic.

Oh, what a stupendous title. This classic 70's sleaze almost lives up to that genius billing. I'm curious about all these bad reviews. Those people must not be fans of nudity, lesbianism, nudity, filth, nudity, sadomasochism, nudity, torture, nudity, or graphic nudity. Weird.

Here's the plot--
Car wreck.
Gothic castle.
Nudity. Lots of nudity.
Dopplegangers, ghouls, monsters, Satan.
Sex and torture.

What's not to love?

3.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric Italian Horror June 16, 2000
By no means is this a classic of horror cinema (apparently it's been locked away in a vault since it's disastrous Italian one-screening release in the 70's), but it is nonetheless a fun and moody descent into euro-erotic atmosphere. There is a creepy feel to the proceedings which is backed by a foreboding musical score, solid acting and stylistic use of lighting and camera movements. It's very low-budget and the narrative is minimal, but the film's shortcomings are redeemed by it's dream-like ambience. Nudity abounds and there's a very fake spider, but this is one small gem that italian horror fans should check out. The DVD lets you watch it in Italian with english subtitles (this is the better choice) or in the English-dubbed version. Also contains the Italian and the English trailers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eurotrash mini-classic July 14, 1999
By A Customer
Nude for Satan is yet another interesting release from the Redemption line of Image Entertainment. Chock full of bizarre satanic rituals, nudity and horrific images, it illustrates fully the wonders of European low budget horror. Definetly not for the casual viewer, but well worth the time for genre fans. The DVD transfer is probably the best presentation this film has and will ever receive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surreal Italian Exploitation March 27, 2005
By Chris
This is a somewhat surreal Italian exploitation movie and although it does have a plot hidden within it, the emphasis is firmly upon the entertainment provided by each scene. The exploitation theme is carried out with great enthusiasm with large amounts of nudity, lesbian themes, whipping and even a horny spider, but all somewhat harmlessly. Visually, the movie is quite classy with good production values and this is a good quality print. This is certainly much more watchable than many other exploitation movies dragged out of the vault for release on DVD in recent times. Overall whilst this is no masterpiece, it does combine some good moments coherently with surreal elements and it all looks pretty into the bargain. Collectors of this genre could do much worse than get hold of this, its well above average for this type of movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Here Is The Kingdom Of Knowledge!"... June 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
NUDE FOR SATAN opens w/ a naked woman running in slow-motion through a forest, then switches to a close-up of the front end of a Volkswagen Beetle. Ah, we must be in Jean Rollin country! A man and woman find themselves in a castle, at the mercy of eeevil forces, hideous illusions, and perhaps, Satan himself! Watching NFS is sort of like being lost in a funhouse. We're never quite sure that anything we're seeing is real. Rollin loves to mess w/ our heads, and he does so to perfection here. If you enjoy surrealist-horror movies like LISA AND THE DEVIL, along w/ copious nudity, then NUDE FOR SATAN should be a treat. Others, especially those expecting a straight, gothic horror film, will probably get a headache from this one... P.S.- The frolicking, fleshy finale is as ridiculous as it is mesmerizing!...
