The Blood Countess

Julie Delphy’s second film as writer/director/actress is released in Europe this month. The subject is 16th century Hungarian/Transylvanian countess Erzsébet Bàthory, known for murdering young girls to bathe in their blood and considered by some the first female serial killer.  Judging from the trailer, Delphy’s film doesn’t appear to equal earlier visions of the Bloody Countess (French Surrealist Valentine Penrose’s hallucinatory biography, for example, or Terry Gilliam’s Mirror Queen (Monica Bellucci) in The Brothers Grimm).
