Horror fans have come to expect a few things from awesome genre installments: blood, guts, a menacing antagonist, and of course, the all famous nude scene. Mix this combination and you’re eyeing a fine recipe for success.
Have your doubts? Then check out ten wildly memorable nude scenes, and note the fact that most of these flicks just so happen to be awesome! Coincidence? Hmm. . .
Mathilda May (Lifeforce): It’s impossible to forget this nude scene. A gorgeous 20-year old Mathilda May strolling around with not a shred of clothing to cover her natural goodies sounds like a blast to me. It’s no wonder I own this film!
Elisabeth Brooks (The Howling): This gorgeous brunette put it all on full display in the immensely enjoyable werewolf flick, The Howling. Seeing her all tangled up in feral lust with Christopher Stone still stands out in my memory today.
Debi Sue Voorhees (Friday the 13th Part V): This one is all too perfect for the teenage boy. A sultry face, huge knockers and a libido worthy of the adult industry, I’d say Debi Sue Voorhees is a winner; and hell, her last name is even Voorhees!
Kelly Nichols (Toolbox Murders): Holy crap, if you want to talk about gratuitous nude scenes, this one is a front runner to steal the show. Let’s just say things go from solo fun to nightmarish kink, quickly. If you haven’t had the chance to see this one, seek it out!
Anna Falchi (Cemetery Man): I don’t know what to say about this selection. Anna Falchi is so absolutely stunning that the best thing you can do right now is leave this site and hit google; you’ll thank me later.
Britt Ekland (The Wicker Man): Anytime you can effectively combine sensual with creepy, you win big points in my book. If you’ve never seen this film (which boasts a ton of nudity), you’ve missed one of the most memorable clothing-free scenes in the genre’s history. The beautiful Britt Ekland is golden dancing to the creepy “Willow's Song”, but you really need to see it to fully appreciate it!
Nancy Allen (Carrie): Nancy Allen redefines natural beauty, and thanks to Brian De Palma, we get to see that beauty in all its fine glory during the opening credits of the legendary, Carrie. Yes, I said the opening credits; talk about a shocker!
Linnea Quigley (The Return of the Living Dead): This flick is alive in my memory, but I’m not certain whether it’s the silly sequence that showcases Ms. Quigley in all her bare beauty, or the fact that rumors have been alive for years that Linnea wore some form of pelvic cover during the shoot. Either way, it’s worth watching, if for no other reason than to try and validate or invalidate the rumors.
Lia Beldam (The Shining): You must have seen this pick coming! While something seems amiss with the hot broad in the bath tub, I just can’t seem to wrap my arms around it!
Betsy Rue (My Bloody Valentine 3D): This here earns a place on the list due to the extremely awkward nature of the scene. Betsy Rue basically spends a few minutes running around in a panic, completely naked, and completely… unsexy, as amazing as that sounds. She’s an insanely gorgeous woman, but there’s something about the entire trucker sequence that feels more spectacle than stimulant.
