Product Details

Product Description


Two strangers who wreck their cars on a rural highway during a storm take refuge in a mansion. A doctor (James Harris), who has left an unconscious woman, Susan (the striking Rita Calderoni), in his car walks in to discover depravities behind every door when Susan suddenly appears, dressed in a flowing gown and acting as if they were old friends. The next morning, Susan wakes up in his car and enters the mansion to find a leering aristocrat, his snaggle-toothed servant, and the doctor dressed as a count and acting like a decadent dilettante. It's as if the two exist in parallel universes, confronted with ghost versions of one another in a portal to the past controlled by a devilish hedonist. Director Luigi Batzella deftly combines the weirdly stylized horror and out-and-out exploitation (scenes of bondage, torture, unmotivated sex, and an orgy are sprinkled throughout) for a film dripping in eerie mood and nightmare imagery. The doppleganger story of split psyches doesn't always make sense, and a few clumsily executed scenes are laughably silly (a hoary papier mâché and pipe-cleaner spider is the worst offender), but the handsome production is unexpectedly compelling and unsettling.

The DVD offers both original Italian and dubbed English soundtracks, with optional subtitles. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

A previously lost sleaze masterpiece, chock-a-block with lesbianism, whippings, black magic and dubious dubbing. This is Italian gothic with huge dollops of seventies style. A man who seeks help for an injured woman at a gothic castle finds it inhabited with his and her "darker" halves.

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.

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 Satanic Bliss May 12 2001
First off, the opening scene is that of a naked woman. This is a very good omen of things to come. Now I prefer the finger down the throat, herion addited woman, however, it is nice to see some real, as created women (naked of course).Wonderful bodies, errie plot, nice camera work, overall a well rounded erotic horror movie. I hate spiders,this I freely admitt, however if like myself you are an aracnicphobic, don't let the spider scene scare you off. It has apbout 25 legs so it's not really a spider. Satan could have been more evil (a better actor). Then again this is erotica.. It's well done, end of review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Italian Sex and Gothic Jan. 24 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"Nude for Satan" is a fairly entertaining exercise in the Italian Gothic style, somewhat reminiscent of "Castle of Terror", but with more explicit sexual content. Comparing it to the other Redemption videos I have seen, I would say it is not quite as good as "The Devil's Nightmare", but is considerably better than "The Reincarnation of Isabel". Certainly Rita Calderoni is used to better effect here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nude, Nude, Nude March 9 2003
By A Customer
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars What in the world? June 4 1999
By A Customer
After the Feature preview I thought I was in for a pretty good "b" movie......WRONG, after the well filmed preview it was obvious that this one minute segment cost alot more to make than the entire movie. Terrible translation for the captioning,horrid special effects and where were the vampires that the cover and preview suggest? Skip this one and move up ten steps to "ANY" other cheap "b" movie.

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.
