    Being a HUGE Hammer fan (and a fan of big breasted Euro women :D), I was just wondering which ones have nudity in them. I honestly believe Hammer studios had some of the best looking women in film history, and distinctly remember reading somewhere (official site maybe?) that they started the practice around 1970..is this true? There's still a few I haven't got around to seeing yet and would really appreciate any info.

    I have like 25 of them on DVD/video, but I've not watched near all of them.

    I do know Satanic Rites of Dracula and To the Devil... A Daughter each have nudity.

    TWINS OF EVIL boasts the Collinson twins periodically bare,the female lead in HANDS OF THE RIPPER has a discreet topless scene in a bathtub.VAMPIRE CIRCUS has some nudity from memory.

    Isn't this rather like saying "Hey, I'm a HUGE fan of slasher films. Which ones had nudity?" :D

    Hmm. I recently watched Twins, and while they were often scantily clad, there was only 1 bare breasted scene that I recall..

    To the Devil a Daughter is something extra special in the annals of nudity in horror movies because it features the full frontal nudity of a 17 (possibly 16) year old Natassja Kinski. That would be illegal by today's standards.

    edit: I'm now guessing that she was most likely 16 at the time of shooting. According to imdb, she turned 17 in Jan 24, 1976. To the Devil was released little more than a later to UK theatres on March 4th.

    If I saw that quote on a movie... any movie, I'd just have to buy it!

    Just imagine:

    "Two thumbs up"
    Ebert & Roeper

    "Chock full of beefy tits"
    McChrist

    :lol:

    Its' been a long time since I saw it,so you may well be right on that regard,though it seems to me there are two cuts of that one,one might have just a bit more skin in it.The more obvious ones(VAMPIRE LOVERS ,LUST FOR A VAMPIRE) had already been mentioned,so I went a bit more obscure.

    I believe I read somewhere that it's a body double in this scene instead of Valerie Leon. Or maybe it said it on the dvd, can't quite seem to remember. Anyway just thought I would share that.

    Sold! I actually ordered that DVD yesterday just for that quote. :D

    I plan to eventually own the entire Hammer collection (even the one's without tits and ass). For anyone who cares here's what I've got so far:

    Appreciate all the replies, BTW.

    Damn, too bad you didn't get the Taste the Blood of Dracula/Curse of Frankenstein DF, woulda saved you some cheddar. There's also a tv series from them, not sure if there's tits in it, though.

    Some episodes of THE HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR do indeed contain nudity,WITCHING TIME comes to mind.

    I'm trying to do the same.

    http://www.dvdaficionado.com/dvds.html?cat=1&sub=Hammer&id=damed

    The only addition I have that's not on that list is an R4 box set that contains "Vampire Circus" "Twins of Evil" and "Hands of the Ripper"

    Lust For A Vampire is awesome, there is some full frontal in there if I remember correctly. Great film too.
