"It was the voluptuous Butz (no pun intended) that really caught my fancy, however. Pretty much a nonentity for the first hour of the film, once her character is possessed by the Baroness she suddenly morphs into an arrestingly seductive vampire, virtually throbbing with feral carnality. ("Her! I want her!") I'm partial to brunettes anyway (Edwige Fenech and Caroline Munro — yowza!), and Ulrike's got the killer combo of a schoolgirl face and a sex kitten body... Needless to say I was quite smitten with this fetching young fraulein. I'm motivated to see more of her films, no matter how bad they might be."Brian Lindsey, Eccentric Cinema source
"ulrike butz war die talentreichste schauspielerin der 70er jahre leider war sie nur in erotikfilmen zu sehen diese haben durch sie aber eine relativ hohe qualität erreicht sie ist mindestens auf dem gleich hohen niveu anzusetzen wie eine ingrid steeger,auch wenn ihre brüste vieleicht eine nummer kleiner ware"
"Lots of nudity in the movie but Ulrike Butz is the one who gave me a stiffy. What a body! Her exposure isn't the longest but she's the best. Too bad her career was cut short by an overdose."

"Ulrike is maybe the peachiest of all 70s German softcore starlets, a dollfaced fraulein-next-door brunette with legs up to her ears and a ravishing body. She's easily 20# heavier than any current-day actress of her size and it looks terrific on her: respectable tits, big round ass, curves in places Kate Moss doesn't have places -- just a total babe."

Hold on there... an overdose? Really?
At one time she was indeed a drug addict, but she seemed to have kicked the habit in the early '80s. Then again, she wouldn't be the first junkie to relapse after a time of sobriety.
Her addiction could however explain the void in her filmography from 1974 to 1981, only to return as an extra in two flicks directed by Franz Marischka, who had worked with her in the early '70s. Was it a favor to Marischka, or was it perhaps the other way around? Why didn't she land any bigger roles during her come-back?
In any case, here's what's probably Ulrike's last image captured on celluloid:
