Leo (Brad Scott) is a painter who, to make ends meet, started painting classes involving nude models. One day he bumps into a friend of his, Peter (Jack Lowe), a photographer who is full of talent and great ideas ... but doesn't have a penny to his name. So Leo suggests he should photograph his nude models, and sell the photographs to men's magazines which are always on the lookout for good nude pictures. Peter is hesitant at first, but soon jumps into it, and he soon develops a relaxed attitude about shooting girls in the nude, so all the girls want to work with him. However, every time Peter sees the colour red, he almost freaks out ...

One day, Peter takes his latest model, Linda, to Central Park, to do some pics of her out in the open, but she cuts her finger, and when she sees his reaction to her blood, she teases Peter for a bit ... enough for him to - strangle her to death.

The next day, Linda's roommate stops by Peter's place, worried because she hasn't come home last night, and Peter might be the last person who has seen her. He evades her questions ... and then she urges him to take nude pictures of her. Peter declines, and when she won't take no for an answer, he slaps her face, which causes her nose to bleed, which causes Peter to go bonkers and strangle her to death.

Later Leo and his wife find the body of the dead girl in the wardrobe of the studio they share with Peter, and they find Peter, totally out of it, and threatening them with a wife. They manage to escape the studio and lock him in ... and in a case of utter lunacy, Peter kills himself.

 

Basically, a nudie from the weird side of the spectrum. For the longest time, you see nothing but a handful of models posing in the nude (but carefully seeing to it that their primary sex organs don't show on screen), while Brad Scott, offscreen, goes on and on about art and nude photography and stuff, but then, only in the last quarter, the whole thing turns into a thriller pretty much out of nowhere (though it had been suggested Peter doesn't like red too much [he inexplicably tends to wear a red sweater himself though]). Weird as it may be, The Beautiful, the Bloody, and the Bare is not a very fascinating movie, for the most part it's just an excuse to show as many bare breasts as possible, using it's pseudo-artistic narration as a very feeble excuse, and Jack Lowe's performance as the man slowly slipping into insanity is ridiculous rather than threatening ... but at least the girls all look pretty good, and Lowe's failed performance does cause a few mild chuckles.
