A beautiful "vampire" woman becomes involved with a playboy whose father is experimenting with artificial youth. As it turns out, a group of vampires is trying to save her from aliens from outer space! This is indeed a very unique erotic Euro-horror film with a thought-provoking story. Rated R for nudity. Recommended. Color, scope, 35mm.

Only watched a few minutes.
Linda K.
It was an interesting however strange little movie, almost a waste of time to watch but not really.

I suppose it was meant to be artistic.

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.

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.

There is only one word for this movie...awful. It is very drawn out is places that it doesn't need to be. For example, if someone is walking across a court, they cover every boring step. I certainly don't know anything about making a movie but I think that even I could have done a better job. Again, just awful!

There are cult classic exploitation and exploratory films, but this is not one of them. The low production value is obvious, but that is not what holds this film back. Normally the campy horror genre has something like over-the-top humor or violence which captures the audience despite the low quality. This film lacks that, and also falls short or the noir-like feel that it is trying to create.

This flick was so bad that it gave "B" movies a bad name if that is possible. The best thing that could happen to this flick is that they remake it in a French and use subtitles so I would not have to ever watch it again.
