I thought Monika did an amazing job playing Elizabeth Bathory!, her eyes scare you shitless, she is very beautiful, and she really brought so much to the character even though all she did was kill Heather Mazzarato’s character Lorna…
Bathory ……. bath?!
I love the story of Elizabeth Bathory…I really want to see he movie…
If your interested in this subject, watch the movie ‘stay alive’. It’s about Elizabeth basically ‘coming back’. It’s interesting enough
dude how can someone do that ok the movie stay alive which has the story of Elizabeth Bathory killing people but how could she?
If you’re interested in the true story, read the new book, “Infamous Lady: The True Story of Countess Erzsebet Bathory,” by Kimberly Craft. It has new and complete translations of all of the original documents. Fascinating, terrifying and unbelievable to find out what really happened. It’s on Amazon right now and I heard in bookstores by spring.
Unfortunately, while engaging, these movies aren’t very accurate, historically. If you want more truth than fiction, check out Tony Thorn’s book and Kimberly Craft’s “Infamous Lady” book on Countess Bathory.
I agree with Christian and William. “Infamous Lady” is probably the best book available right now on Lady Bathory. If you’re tired of fictional crap, get ready for the real thing: it is graphic and intense, and the legal authorities of her time spared no expense describing the horrors of what she did.
Bathory got away with her killings and abuse as long as she tormented peasants. The authorities went after her only when she turned her sights on girls from the nobility. (I agree. “Infamous Lady” was a great read.)
ALL CRIMES SHOULD BE TREASURED IF THEY BRING PLEASURE SOMEHOW!!!!!!!!
That is well-said..most of us play puppets to a false sense of self-righteousness in a land bound by law…these same people given more power would indulge in an abundance of crimes, promiscuity and lust.
How is it wrong to accept all of this for what they are? how was lady Bathory wrong? and how do we know that the countless victims who go missing in the 21st century are not used up for serving the pleasures of the members of plutocracy?..
I totally fail to understand, which religion, if there ever was one could deny pleasure to our lustful souls?..what is society anyways..if not men & women longing for being primeval in their real selves in their secret closet lives?…
While I agree, ‘Infamous Lady’ is a great read, once more these documents are mainly written by the men who had much to gain from Bathory’s conviction. Which brings to question: how truthful are these documents? I know we will probably never know the real truth, but in my mind, Erzsebet Bathory was not a serial killer by any extreme. I feel it is quite an insult to point a finger in this direction. She was not evil by any means, she was simply a woman of her time, she treated her servants no different then any other noble of this period, be it male or female. It all boiled down to greed, she was a widow, a woman and had absolute power in her domain. This could not be tolerated, plus it also helped her conviction released the King from his debt to her family.
Elizabeth Bathory…a great real horror story that sadly has inspired lame movies… even gore…but lame. I meant it really has potential… Wish she could have her Robert Bloch.
LOL Why do people keep on recommending the movie “stay alive” when it is a film full of bull crap. How would you know the character of Erzsebet Bathory through that movie if the movie is about the countess haunting stupid teenagers through video games LMAO!! if you want a good movie inspired of Erzsebet, try “Bathory” or “The Countess” although both movies are mixed with fictitious add ons, like in “Bathory” where Erzsebet had an affair with the Italian painter Merisi Carvaggio. But at least it’s better than finding her character through a movie wherein she haunts through a video game. WTF I would recommend “Bathory.”
