The infamous tale of the "Countess of Blood" is retold in this gruesome, sensual horror film about 17th-century Hungarian royal Erzebet Bathory (Anna Friel), reported to have bathed in the blood of murdered virgins in the attempt to remain young forever. This production emphasizes historical intrigues and romance as much as the infamous bloodletting, and offers its spin on the manner in which Bathory was consigned to her ultimate doom. Karel Roden, Vincent Regan also star. 141 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
