Great horror film about The Blood Countess Erzebet Bathory., 29 March 2006
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

"Countess Dracula" concerns itself with the mysterious events that slowly unfold around the time of the ascension of the witch-like Countess Elisabeth(Ingrid Pitt),a corrupt and mysterious woman who discovers that by bathing in the blood of virgins,she can restore some of her former beauty.Attempting to not only reap the more favorable parts of her husband's will,but also marry the young Lt. Toth(Sandor Eles),she manipulates the love-struck Captain Dobi(Nigel Green)into doing her dirty work."Countess Dracula" by Peter Sasdy deals with Erzebet Bathory who bathed in the blood of young virgins to maintain her vitality.The film is well-directed and superbly acted and offers a little bit of nudity.Ingrit Pitt is excellent and she brings a lot of mystery to the role of the near-dead,rotting Countess who discovers the sanguine curative powers of life liquid.Give this Hammer classic a look.8 out of 10.
