Super Bitch was released in Italy on 3 May 1973 where it was distributed by Medusa. It grossed a total of 353,341,000 lire on its theatrical run in Italy. It was initially released in the United Kingdom under the title Blue Movie Blackmail where it was distributed by Hemdale. The English-language version of the film gave more emphasis to Stephanie Beachams' nude scenes than the thriller plot.
In a contemporary review, the Monthly Film Bulletin described the film as "a competently, impersonally handled thriller fantasy" and "mere competence can do little to unify this kind of mongrel co-production, or to pump much life into its derivative synthetics"
