I’m really happy to be covering Brigitte Kingsley naked today because I thought I would never get the chance. You see, the film we’re covering here, the rather loquaciously named Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy!, is not her nude debut. It’s her second and only other nude scene, which itself doesn’t seem like much of a milestone except for the fact that I can’t get my hands on the first. We first got to enjoy Brigitte Kingsley nude back in 2015 in another movie written and directed by her husband.
That film was Night Cries, which I’ve had a lot of trouble sourcing. It’s not on any of the streaming services ’round my parts – neither subscription nor up for sale individually. It’s also not for sale on blu ray anywhere I have access to. More than that, as far as I can tell, it was never released on blu ray. I normally feel quite inadequate when I can’t get a hold of a film I’m after, so when I heard that there was a new(ish) movie out in which we could see Brigitte Kingsley naked – and the first time for me – I was overjoyed. And so we arrive at Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! (The exclamation mark is part of the title; I’m not quite at that level of excitement and will likely only ever be when Natalie Dormer does a full frontal nude scene)
It’s funny, though, because for much of the movie, I thought my intel of a Brigitte Kingsley nude scene in Rocktapussy was duff. The first time we see the Canadian actress in Rocktapussy, she’s up on stage, dancing around a pole in a bikini. It is quickly confirmed that this is a strip club, and even though the narrative takes a different route, the opening is one that is clearly lewd but not nude. This theme recurs a few more times in the film, so I’m sure you can understand why someone would think that it would carry through to the end. But it doesn’t.
It takes until we’re more than an hour deep into the film, but we do eventually see Brigitte Kingsley topless. It happens in a few shorter flashes of some sort of ritual sacrifice scene in which she is chained to an altar. In a small portion of these shots, she’s not wearing a top, and her giant tits with their ornate nipple piercings are on show. In the same part of the film, we also see the Ontario native emerge from some pod completely naked and covered in blood (or ketchup). There technically are a pair of full frontal shots during this, but the high concentration of burger condiments over her crotch make it unclear as to whether she’s wearing any sort of modesty patch or not. Either way, though, we’ve got boobies, and if you’ve been struggling to get a hold of Night Cries like I have, you can now enjoy Brigitte Kingsley nude in Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy!
