In Nude for Satan, director Luigi Batzella deftly combines weirdly stylised 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. 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. The doppelganger 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. --Sean Axmaker

3.0 out of 5 stars Daft for Satan 2 Nov 2007
After their cars collide an injured man & woman stagger to a nearby gothic mansion to seek help. The satanic master of the house puts the pair through a series of trials & tribulations. Are they in a state of shock? Hallucinating on the edge of death? Or dead already and in hell?
Ok, if you are into early 1970s Euro exploitation erotic horror then you have eccentric tastes in cinema, but then if you are reading this review you presumably share this guilty pleasure. Nude for Satan, despite its daft title, is a reasonably good example of the genre, the "plot" is quite clever (if derivative) & it's quite well made, apart from a few lapses - the master / satan character is decidedly underwhelming & don't even mention the ludicrous giant spider - but that type of ridiculousness is part of the absurd appeal. Like most Italian examples of the genre there is some silliness but fortunately little (intentional) comedy. Most importantly, many scenes have the dreamy & delirious quality that makes this type of film interesting. As horror the film fails completely but as erotic surrealism it just about succeeds - thanks in part to the central performance of the rather wonderful Rita Calderoni. If you like early 1970s Jess Franco & Jean Rollin then you'll probably enjoy this.
