The infamous Countess Erzsebet Bathory, who is said to have maintained youth and beauty into her old age by bathing in the blood of virgins, has her life story told in a more balanced but still provocative manner in this grand-scale historical drama. Anna Friel delivers a sensational performance as Bathory, the Vampire Countess, in the chilling true story of one of history's most notorious tyrants. History remembers Countess Bathory as the most sadistic murderess who ever lived, a monstrous killer of more than 650 innocent lives, who delighted in the torture of her victims, tearing the flesh from their bodies with her bare teeth and bathing in their still warm blood in an unholy quest for immortality.
