Nude For Satan (AKA Nuda per Satana - 1974)

Last night, after suffering through the Kids Choice Awards, I decided to venture back a few years for something different to watch. In my search, I stumbled upon a few interesting foreign exploitation flicks. What better than a combination of blood, boobs and Satan for an evening of entertainment?  Nothing, right… The flick is Nude for Satan or Nuda per Satana from 1974.

Plot/ Italian Gothic horror that tells the tale of a man who stops at a remote castle hoping to get medical help for an injured woman, only to find the inhabitants mirror the darker sides of the woman and himself.

It had bee a while since I sat down and watched a classic Italian exploitation film, and that is exactly what this one is (although there is a lot of gothic horror elements). That being said, the plot is uneven, although, the idea was there and decently interesting. Yes, it had a bunch of nude women frolicking about, but that played secondary to a tremendous atmosphere and typical Italian stylization throughout. Sure, the acting was rigid, and there was a lot of poorly dubbed audio, but for a 1970s exploitation flick, it all worked. If you love cult flicks, Italian gothic horror, boobs, or exploitation flicks, this one is definitely for you! Check it out!
