Lucretia Love is an Italian film actress. She is often credited under the name Lucrezia Love and has appeared in thirty-six films. Her first professional film work was the 1965 Italian romantic comedy, appropriately titled Love Italian Style.

Lucretia's first work in the horror genre was the 1966 low-budget Michael Reeves film She Beast, in which she played the niece of another character named Groper. In 1967 she played a character named Janet in Colt in the Hand of the Devil, but this was a western and really had nothing to do with the Devil at all.

In 1968, Lucretia played Mike Shevlove in the Ruggero Deodato sci-fi/superhero film Phenomenal and the Treasure of Tutankamen. The movie featured characters attempting to plunder an Egyptian tomb, which is actually a common theme in many Universal Pictures films of the 1940s, in particular, the Mummy films.

In 1971, Lucretia appeared in another film with the word "Devil" in the title, Osvaldo Civirani's The Devil Has Seven Faces, which was actually a drama. 1974 saw another "Devil" themed film, this one though actually is a horror movie; Enter the Devil by Mario Gariazzo, which in Italy was titled L'ossessa. Lucretia received third billing in the film playing a character named Luisa.

Lucretia's final film work was the 1980 horror/comedy Dr. Heckyl and Mr. Hype written and directed by Charles B. Griffith and starring Oliver Reed. Lucretia played the role of Debra Kate.
