Bathory is based on the legends surrounding the life and deeds of Countess Elizabeth Bathory known as the greatest murderess in the history of mankind. Contrary to popular belief, Elizabeth Bathory was a modern Renaissance woman who ultimately fell victim to mens aspirations for power and wealth.
movies made of books are often not as good as the book was, and this a perfect example!! The book was brilliant! The movie was horrible!! I stayed up late to watch this last night, and was more than disappointed..
they use the same names, but left some characters out, and changed the entire thing around. Claire met James while she was a waitress... and then they got married, and he left her on the day their baby, Kate, was born - so she fled back to ireland, to live at her parents house with her folks and 2 sisters... and she has 2 other sisters that don't live @ home.. all great characters.. (in the movie she has one BORING sister) and she goes out with a friend of one of the sister, Adam, and falls for him..
i wont give away any of the rest - the book is fab!
ignore the movie.. read the book!!
