Die nackten Vampire: Directed by Jean Rollin. With Caroline Cartier, Olivier Rollin, Maurice Lemaître, Bernard Musson. A young man falls in love with a beautiful woman being chased by sinister masked figures at night. He tries to track her down, and learns she’s being held captive by his father and colleagues who believe she’s a vampire.

“With no dialogue for about the first 8 1/2 minutes, The Nude Vampire begins with a woman being pursued by a bunch of masked cult members. Seeing that she is in distress, a young man tries to assist her with her escape, but to no avail. She is gunned down by a man in a deer mask and carried away. The man helping her flees up a train bridge (in fear for his life), but makes an attempt to follow the men carrying her away.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe young man turns out to be the son of some elite member of the cult. But despite warnings to steer clear…he canu0026#39;t resist.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHe tries to get in, but is denied without an invitation. So he mugs someone with an invitation and cons his way in. Now he can find out, first hand, what this odd sect of individuals are up to…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs soon as he gets in, a young woman seems to be randomly chosen…and willingly commits suicide. Bags are put over everyoneu0026#39;s heads. Another young woman comes down and drinks blood from the suicide victim.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLittle does he suspect that he is next to be chosen… He pretends to go with it, until they give him the gun. Then he kills the unmasked leader and attempts to flee. Luckily for him, some spies on the inside- who have a connection with his family- help him make it out alive and in one piece. After which he is told to report to his father, u0026quot;where more mysteries awaitu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTurns out that his father is running a cult based around this vampire chick- who can heal right away as along as her internal organs arenu0026#39;t damaged. His goal is to absorb her immortality for himself. But to do this he needs a vampire of the same blood type- so that he can breed them. In the meantime, he has organized a separate suicide cult in her honour…as means to keep her fed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere also seems to be another cult working against the boyu0026#39;s father…one trying to free the vampiress from her life of captivity. Other vampires perhaps? Whoever they are, they have chosen him (or he has been destined) to become an initiate. But perhaps not everything is as it seems…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film concludes on an incredibly philosophic note with a positive message…in another dimension!!! (haha) u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI absolutely loved this film! Itu0026#39;s certainly not your typical u0026quot;vampireu0026quot; story; and the whole cult angle makes it particularly intriguing. Everything is beautifully framed and shot. And, well, if you came here for the tits…thereu0026#39;s lots of those too.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, I enjoyed it most for the gnostic themes revealed in itu0026#39;s final twist.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAn underrated gem. Check this one out, especially if you are philosophically inclined.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e8.5 of 10”
