This very cool Hammer film tells the story of Countess Elizabeth Bathory in grand fashion, although the Countess here sports a different last name. You all know the story, countess wants eternal beauty and bathes in virgin's blood among other atrocities. Real life is always worse than most fiction, but Hammer pulls this off with style, blood, and sex appeal. Things get a bit kinky in this one as the Countess here assumes her own daughters identity and takes her man. Strange stuff made even better with the presence of Nigel Green and Ingrid Pitt. It's twisted, if you get the R or unrated version you get some nudity, and there's a good story to keep you awake, unlike most of the vampire crap being made today.
