The Countess DVD

I bought this today at a closing video store. The cover shows Erzebet looking up, covered, of course in blood. The description from the IMDB database is about as fair minded:

A 17th century Hungarian countess embarks on a murderous undertaking, with the belief that bathing in the blood of virgins will preserve her beauty.

Director: Julie Delpy
Writer: Julie Delpy
Stars:Julie Delpy, Daniel Brühl and William Hurt

I can't wait to see William Hurt in this. Also looking for information on the 2008 Bathory, but have not found much, though it is quite a hit in The Slovak Republic where the ruins of her final castle/prison are located.

Andre Codrescu, if you are out there, I'd love to hear from you.

I read "For Erzebet/The Blood Countess" yesterday; it got a good reception. I'm also rereading Dracula was a Woman; though called Erzebet's biggist apologist, McNally delights in sensationalism and his eyewitness facts can be questioned. I question the 650 names of alleged victims written in her "blood." What was the population of the village that this many single teenaged girls were around? Hm.
