BLOOD BATH is a horror film, from 1966, about an artist whose work features naked female corpses.

Nudity

Sexualised nudity in various paintings showing topless dead women. These are not strongly detailed.

Violence

Moderate violence as a vampire attacks several women, biting their necks. There is also the killing of a woman with an axe; there is no sight of the axe touching her, and her nudity is only implied as her dead body lies on the floor with a large pool of blood spreading from it. The woman's implied nudity, and the film's focus on the paintings of naked female corpses, adds the suggestion of a sexual motive to the killings.

There is also some mild horror as bodies, which have been coated in wax to make them look like statues, appear to come back to life and the wax flakes off as they move.
