When Countess Erzsebet Bathory (Lucia Bosé) is accidentally splattered with some blood drops of one of her nubile maidservants, the Countess finds out that the blood can preserve her skin young and beautiful. Compelled to kill innocent young girls to use their blood, the Countess is helped by her husband Karl (Espartaco Santoni), who fakes his own death and pretends to be a vampire to fool the superstitious villagers about the source of the exsanguinations. In the meantime Karl finds himself attracted to Marina (Ewa Aulin), the young daughter of a local innkeeper, perhaps another victim for the Countess.
Believed one of the best adaptation of Elizabeth Báthory’s legend, this is one of the most disturbing and chilling movie from Spanish horror cult director Jorge Grau (Let Sleeping Corpses Lie). The Legend of Blood Castle in presented with its original full Spanish edit. Deleted and alternate (more explicit) scenes are included as extra contents.
