The Nude Vampire (Vampire nue, La) (1974)
French director Jean Rollin's erotic and surreal vampire yarn stars Olivier Martin as Pierre Radamante, a wealthy hedonist who learns that his scientist father, Georges (Maurice Lemaître), is carrying out experiments to unlock the secret of immortality. And that's not all: It seems that Georges is in league with a ritualistic society involving vampires and evil alien mutants! Caroline Cartier and Catherine Castel also star.

... a strange work of conspiracy, family rebellion, and innocence imprisoned, both a vampire film and a strange science fiction fantasy of shadowy old men performing secret experiments.
Audience Reviews for The Nude Vampire (Vampire nue, La)
A wealthy young man discovers his father is part of a group holding a vampire captive, trying to determine the secret of immortality. This is one weird, and sometimes very bad, vampire flick; it's hard to predict how you'll react to it, since it's too arty for "bad movie" fans and too raw and amateur for arthouse fans. In the interest of truth in advertising, it should have been titled "The Vampire in the See-through Nightie."More
This is a strange movie, and very barely about vampires if I remember correctly. It's okay, but not good.More
I may not be able to tell you straight away who I think is the most creative filmmaker, or the most intellectual filmmaker, or the most symbolic filmmaker, but I have an immediate answer if you want to know the most boring filmmaker: Jean Rollin. His static takes, long scenes, minimal dialogue, and complete absence of suspense and drama delivered by a cast of lousy somnambulating actors would test a chess fan's patience. Hell, the guy even found a way to make nudity dull. This gets one star because it is slightly better (read: has a sort-of plot) than another of his disasterpieces I've seen.More
