Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Horror motifs are mixed with eroticism and surrealism in The Nude Vampire, the second feature from the innovative French auteur Jean Rollin.
The Nude Vampire is centred on a doctor s obsessive
desire to find immortality by experimenting with
the blood of a female vampire he is holding captive.
However, the doctor s besotted son conspires to
free the incarcerated bloodsucker with disastrous
results. The Nude Vampire offers the viewer an array of voyeuristic images in a beautiful mix of the surreal and the bizarre. A must have for anyone who likes their blood red and preferably from someone else's
vein.

Review

The Nude Vampire was Jean Rollin s second feature film and his first film in color. Visually Rollin s use of color is striking especially red never takes away from the films baroque and picturesque compositions. What I find most stratifying about Rollin s use of color for the first time is how many of shots despite being shot in color have a black & white quality to them.
One of Jean Rollin's more experimental films gets a good release. --10K Bullets

Redemption Films release a number of European erotic and horror films, and they ve done a great job on THE NUDE VAMPIRE much the same way they ve done with the other Rollin films they ve released. This new US edition features the film in English only while the previous Redemption Pal release was French with English subtitles (or English language on an unlisted audio track) with print quality slightly better than the import edition. An interview with Rollin has not been ported over from the Pal version, but this US release features Rollin s rare short, Les Amours Jaunes which was previously available on the 3-disc Pal version of LEVRES DE SANG released by Encore Entertainment.
Jean Rollin is one of the most gifted directors to work in horror, but unfortunately he s not very well known in the US when compared to other directors like Jess Franco. Anyone who enjoys a blend of eroticism, horror, and art will be hugely impressed by THE NUDE VAMPIRE as well as the rest of Rollin s body of films. You ll wonder why it took you so long to find out about him. --Film Fan Addict

The lighting is flat, compositions plain.
Producer
Aside from an occasional flash of skin the vampire lady is not exactly nude.
William R. Smith
There is only one word for this movie...awful.

This year, I discovered the films of Jean Rollin and have generally enjoyed them. I was a bit reluctant about The Nude Vampire as the reviews on Amazon ran from mixed to negative. Still, I was able to find my copy at a good price and decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did. I would not recommend this film to someone new to Rollin; such a viewer would be going "what the heck is this supposed to be?" It is an early effort, the story does have gaps of logic, and yet there is something charming about it. It starts with a young woman undergoing experimentation by hooded scientists. She makes an escape, is pursued by people in bizarre animal masks, and meets a young man. Both are obviously smitten with each other. The young man gets away when the woman is captured and he soon learns that she is somehow connected to an outfit run by his father. He sneaks into one of their meetings and finds the object of his affection. However, she seems to be a vampire. Father finally tells him the woman has a condition that grants immortality and he wants the secret. Father is aided by twin nymphets and a ruthless hit woman as well as two financial backers. They all make their way to a chateau where there is a fellow who has an agenda of his own concerning the young woman. The ending is interesting; without giving much away, I think it may be the only Rollin film I've seen that has a happy ending instead of the usual bittersweet or sad one. Yes, it could be confusing trying to figure out what's going on, but I like the ambiguity of Rollin's films. The young lady has a sweetness that would cause most people to toss away their wooden stakes.Read more ›

I don't use superlatives too often, but this was the worst movie I have ever seen. Oh, it was bad. And not in the it-was-so-bad-it-was-good way, either.

It is not about vampires. I have no idea what the hell it was about, but it wasn't about those. As for nudity, that just means not-so-attractive women remove their tops in situations where there's no apparent reason for them to do so. But even for those obsessed with boobs, I'm afraid the unremittingly boring nature of the film will cause them to lose consciousness and miss the breast shots anyway.

My attention span is good, but after the first unending half hour of cringe-worthy dialogue (when there was any), and painfully bad acting (come on, an actress does a scene where she shoots herself in the head and doesn't even bother to twitch her head to the side, but gracefully faints instead?), and complete lack of sense, plot, beauty, eroticism or anything, I ended up putting the player on fast-forward. Even then, the extended scenes of people walking went on and on... and on. There were many of such scenes. People walking. I suppose it was meant to be artistic. It failed. I'd like to say that the sheer bad-ness of this film made it funny. Sadly, it's not so. I only got one laugh, brought on, no doubt, by boredom-induced derision. This from a scene where a woman tumbled down a set of stairs, supposedly unconscious, but managed to slowwwwly tumble down each step, obviously bracing and positioning and turning herself throughout the slowwww descent until she hit the bottom. Finally, she decided to let her head slowwwwly thunk to the floor and it made a sound just like a coconut. Perfect!

Other than that, the most fun I got from this movie was writing this review.

As subtle as the title is, my boyfriend and I just had to try this one out if only to appease our curiosity. I think we made it almost 30 minutes before turning it off. We thought our expectations were suitably low and we would be able to get some laughs out of it, but...wow...terrible... just...terrible. According to my boyfriend: not even the nudity can salvage this into being watchable.
Furthermore, we turned it off at a point where there was a black actress doing some kind of dance/tease kind of thing; the look on that poor girl's face kinda freaked us out. We're pretty sure she was supposed to be going for sexy but she actually looked a bit nervous and scared, like maybe the filmmakers were taking advantage of her. I know that seems like a stretch, but the rest of the movie was odd enough that it didn't seem out of the realm of possibility. At that point it didn't even feel right to be watching it just to make fun of it.

One of the heralded cinematic experiences of my lifetime, and certainly of this generation.

French with subtitles, not really a vampire movie. Nudity, yes- it appeared that there was some attempt at making the nudity artful, but the extreme closeup of boobs and erect nipples kind of shot that down, as well as the poor (and really odd) attempt at making some of it appear erotic. Don't think that it is chock full of nudity, though, regardless of what I have written so far. In any case, it IS an interesting take on the subject of evolution, and although the characters seems very lackluster in many places, it is not a terrible story, and if you have some time to kill, watch it. Just don't expect an actual vampire flick.
