In 17th-century Hungary, elderly widow Countess Elisabeth Nádasdy maintains her misleading youthful appearance by bathing in the blood of virgins regularly supplied to her by faithful servant Captain Dobi.
Just over 9 minutes were cribbed from "Portrait in Terror." Jack Hill shot all the new scenes with William Campbell and most of the beatnik footage, while Stephanie Rothman added all the vampire footage. See more »
The television version of this film is called "Track of the Vampire" and restores approximately 11 minutes of footage (mostly outtakes) to the 69-minute theatrical-release version. The added footage includes an extended foot chase early in the film beween the vampire killer and one of his female victims, culminating in her death in the surf. Another addition is an impromptu and lengthy dance by leading lady Lori Saunders (here billed as Linda Saunders), performed on the beach. A third added sequence is a dialogue scene between actors William Campbell, Patrick Magee and an exotic dancer in a seaside nightclub. This sequence was lifted from the Yugoslavian thriller known as "Portrait of Terror" in its English-dubbed version; background footage from this film had already been liberally sprinkled throughout "Blood Bath".

This film (which I saw years ago) seems to be two (or maybe more) different movies edited together-- a contemporary psychological horror film with "flashbacks" to a character's ancestor who was a witch. The "flashbacks" are, I suspect, part of another film entirely-- perhaps a Mexican horror film. Whatever budget reasons led to this unconventional method of film-making, the result can best be described as unintentional surrealism. A unique experience, to say the least.
