Malpertuis (1971)

Brief Nudity

Top Scene


Based on a classic fantasy novel by Belgian author Jean Ray, Malpertuis (1971) spins a stylish web of gothic weirdness and high Euro-’70s sensuality via filmmaker Harry Kümel—who also helmed the lesbian vampire classic Daughters of Darkness the very same year. As spectacularly wealthy Quentin Cassavius (Orson Welles) lies dying, he summons a gaggle of relatives to Malpertuis, the mansion of the title. He then announces that each will receive an equal cut of his fortune, just as long as they never leave the grounds. Beyond that, the last male and female heirs to survive must marry. Added to the mix is Jan (Mathieu Carrière), a drunken sailor who comes to in the midst of these oddball characters. Each time someone tries to flee, a ghastly fate awaits them. Ultimately Jan unlocks the secrets of Malpertuis, and what he finds is mind-blowing on a pre-Biblical scale. Packing even more wallop is Susan Hampshire, who bares boobs and bush.
