Bathory - Countess of Blood DVD
Starring Anna Friel, Karel Roden, Vincent Regan, Hans Matheson, Deana Horvathova, Franco Nero, Antony Byrne, Bolek Polivka, Jiri Madl, Monika Hilmerova, Lucie Vondrackova, Jaromir Nosek
Directed by Juraj Jakubisko
Slovak filmmaker Juraj Jakubisko directs this English-language historical drama based on the legend of 16th-century Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory.
Bathory, who became famous for supposedly bathing in the blood of virgins in a bid to preserve her youth and beauty, has even been included in the Guinness Book of Records as being the most prolific mass murderer in history.
Jakubisko's film, however, offers a sympathetic portrayal of the Countess, showing her at the mercy of the scheming politicians and courtiers around her.
Anna Friel and Karel Roden star.
