Blood Countess: The Monster of Blood

We all love a good horror movie and it is a surprise that the story of Countess Bathory has not been made in to a film countless times. Perhaps that is because it is real. The story of this evil and pernicious woman is astonishing even though we have become partly inured, living as we do in the age of the serial killer. Have a look at her story - and don't have nightmares!

From the article:-

claimed more than 600 lives. What drove this woman to murder without shame, without conscience? Could it have been years of incestuous relations within the family that created such a monster? Or was it her lust for blood that made her such a cankerous wretch on Slovakian society?
