Nude In Dracula's Castle (2009)
Secret Key | Buy at Amazon | Review by Doug Waltz

Okay, read that title one more time. NUDE IN DRACULA'S CASTLE. Isn't that a great title? Yeah, too bad it's not the name of an actual movie. Instead it's one of over five hours of old nudie loops. Shot in 8mm with women who are probably now old enough to be your grandmother, these are tame little short films with no sound except for a music track. The shorts show girls in various states of undress walking around, writhing around and doing it all in their birthday suits. "Quaint" is the first word that comes to mind when viewing these loops.

Produced by Secret Key Motion Pictures which is a division of Pop Cinema which used to be EI Cinema which also makes Seduction Cinema movies, Retro-Seduction Movies, Shock-O-Rama Movies... well, you get the idea... NUDE IN DRACULA'S CASTLE is a treasure trove of classic soft-core pornography that would have otherwise never seen the light of day. I have respect for Pop Cinema president Michael Raso in his never-ending search for things like this that would never have been conceived for a DVD release.

In addition to two, jam-packed DVDs we also get an informative little booklet that gives a brief history of the 8mm loops and the impossibility of collecting the damned things as well as a little description for every single loop in the set! That is quite an accomplishment for something like this.

That being said, this is really a great background disc. Play it while friends are hanging out and drinking beer, during a party; just don't attempt to watch them all in one sitting like a movie. While they are quaint and fun, five hours of nudie cutie loops can become mind-numbingly dull.

The first loop that also lends its name to the collection is the best of the bunch. I would love to know who the woman that stars in this film is because she is magnificent. A gorgeous creature from a bygone age that probably never did anything more than this. If anyone gets this set and knows who this is, please contact me and let me know. She is stunning!
