Critical reception

Hal Erickson in Allmovie called it a "lurid British potboiler",[4] while in The Spinning Image, Graeme Clarke wrote, "Strip Tease Murder had a title which promised far more lurid thrills than the censorship of the day would have allowed them to deliver on, although as far as the nudity went it was still going further than most of its contemporaries. Yet you could see as much in such higher profile fare as Expresso Bongo, and probably be more entertained by a better standard of production to appearing whimsically old-fashioned, Strip Tease Murder was unlikely to find an enduring reception outside of vintage exploitation fans."[5]
