Nai Bonet's bathing scene (as well as many of the other interiors of the Transylvanian castle) was shot inside a huge church in New York. The crew was careful not to let anyone from the church know that they were filming a nude scene. See more »
Nocturna? What sort of name is that?
It's an old Transylvanian name. It means, uh, "of the night."

I read all the reviews because I wanted to find out WHY Nai Bonet wanted to make this film. I didn't get an answer, so I'll speculate. I think poor Nai must've been going through some mid-life crisis. This was shot in 1978, and she looked to be around 25 years old in the 1965 episode of the Beverly Hillbillies "The Sheik", so that makes her a late 30's MILF. Don't get me wrong, she's a great looking MILF, but she's still a MILF! I think she saw her beauty and youth fading away, lost her marbles, and made this thing. It's too bad she didn't make it in 1965 - she was gorgeous! Also, how the hell did she manage to raise the $350,000 to make this film (wink,wink...nod,nod... say no more)?
Anyway, this film is pretty bad and boring. Nai Bonet's acting is so stiff and wooden she makes a Sequoia look like a lump of play-dough. I was a teen when disco was popular and have NO desire to deal with that crap again. If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, you will hate this movie. Thank God for the remote! The old fart that plays the werewolf is horrendous and really annoying. Who is he, Nai Bonet's biggest contributor?
What are the things that make this watchable? Nai Bonet's nude bathroom scene definitely tops the list. She's a dancer and her body shows it. John Carradine's performance was delightful, especially the earlier scenes when we first see him. He definitely gives us the impression that he is a loving Grandfather that appreciates the way Nocturna cares for him. Yvonne DeCarlo was pretty good, but I wish she would've hammed it up a bit more, like she had done on the Munsters. Her performance was a bit too subdued for me.
