"Bathory Malarkey"

Films: Countess Dracula (1971)

Alias: Countess Dracula, Devil Woman

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: No, there is no Count Dracula in this film, stop asking. But there is lots of immortality and blood involved, so there.

History: Countess Elizabeth Nadasdy was not the greatest saint in 17th century Hungary. She found that if one were to bathe in the blood of young virgin girls, one could regain her beauty. Elizabeth jumped at the opportunity, and enlisted her lover and maid to help her get victims.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Eventually, she is confronted by Ilona, her abandoned daughter. Due to her interference, she is found out by the public, and she and her subordinates are sentenced to death by hanging.

Powers/Abilities: Regains youthful looks through bathing in young blood.

Weakness: Youth effects can and will run out.

Scariness Factor: 3-Beware of those who feign beauty. Chances are that they use this false glamour to hunt you down and strengthen it. Elizabeth may have had no ties to Dracula, but she had the help and evil to do the things she did.

Trivia: -Elizabeth is based on the alleged Hungarian serial killer Erzsebet Bathory, who was said to have killed over 600 women and bathed in their blood. Though some say that it never was her, and she was the scapegoat of politics at the time.

-The countess was played by Ingrid Pitt, who had previously played as Carmilla in other vampire movies.

Trust me, she's not the Pre-Marceline this poster depicts her as. She much more shallow...and murderous.

Accurate summation, there.

You brought this upon yourself.

I'd suggest inventing the crematorium in order to rid yourself of that pile.

How many mor lives will you end just to get laid? I ask you.

Nah, that depiction to the right isn't very subtle.
