Storyline

While driving through the countryside late at night, Dr. Benson finds a crashed car with a young woman hanging out of it. The doctor puts the girl in his car and drives for help to the nearest house, which turns out to be a mysterious castle. He is greeted at the door by a woman who looks exactly like the woman from the car, and she invites them both to stay for the night. The doctor soon discovers that his host is not the only one in the castle, and that this beautiful woman is concealing a terrifying secret. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

In the opening scene, before the credits, Susan/Evelyn is running nearly naked through the woods. As she is bouncing up and down just after emerging through the trees, you can clearly see that she is wearing panties. In the next cut (when either the camera is tilted 90º or she is running down a wall), she is clearly not. See more »

Unforgettable 1970s Italian trash! Don't miss it!
30 October 2001 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Several times while watching 'Nude For Satan' I had to pinch myself. Am I REALLY watching this or has someone spiked my drink?! Dario Argento fans often claim that his PLOTS aren't the most important things in his movies, rather it's his ability to manipulate mood and atmosphere, and his films are best approached as dreams, or better yet, nightmares. Luigi Batzella obviously feels the same way, but comparing him to Argento is over-doing it. Argento meets Ray Dennis Steckler is more like it! 'Nude For Satan' is CHEAP, it doesn't make much sense if you analyse it too much, but it is jam-packed with nudity and bargain-basement surrealism, and to my mind, is classic horror-trash that works on so many levels that your mind will boggle!

Leave your brain at the door (but not your libido!), enter Batzella's house of fun, you're in for an unforgettable time! Be careful of the doppelgangers, spooky paintings that come to life, and a TERRIFYING (well...) giant spider, and maybe you too will end up 'Nuda per Satana'!
