Films: Blood and Black Lace (1964)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Would you believe that this woman's blood rage was all because of a diary? Probably not, but it happened, and she had a bit of help as well...for all the good that did in the end.
History: Countess Christina Como is in trouble. The beauty salon she and her lover Max Marian run has been the source of controversy for some time, and there's a diary going about featuring every detail. In order to keep it all a secret from the masses, Christina is willing to get her hands VERY dirty, donning a skin-tight mask and suit in order to kill anyone in on the secrets.
Notable Kills: In an attempt to get the diary, Christina interrogates a victim, then burns her to death with a furnace.
Final Fate: In an attempt to escape the authorities, Christina goes down a faulty drain pipe, which breaks due to a devious Max. A damaged Christina manages to shoot Max before succumbing to her injuries.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Call her motives petty, but there's no doubt that she was a dedicated assassin. The means of killing her victims were varied, and never failed to make us wince.
