History remembers Countess Bathory as the most sadistic murderess who ever lived, a monstrous killer of more than 650 innocent lives, who delighted in the torture of her victims, tearing the flesh from their bodies with her bare teeth and bathing in their still warm blood in an unholy quest for immortality. Challenging the traditional story, this epic and award winning portrayal of the Countess explores the woman behind the legend. A vivid representation of a 17th Century Hungary, torn apart by a devastating civil war, depicts a volatile world in which life is cheap, loyalties are questionable and blood will be spilt.
