Man, I’m really getting into the whole Julie Delpy as Countess Bathory concept, because I just caught the newest trailer released for this one, and frankly, it’s nothing short of awesome.
The movie itself is a sort of retelling of the classic Countess Bathory story, as a woman who loved, lost, loaned a metric ton of cash to a sitting king and eventually went so insane that she began bathing in the blood of virgins in an attempt to retain her youthful looks. This may well be the freakiest kind of horror flick—the kind that might well have happened. See, I can believe there was some fourteenth century chick who said, man, I’ve got some wicked crows feet—but how do I solve them? I know—I’ll soak in virgin blood! My mother used to do something similar except she’d do it with rats.
See what I mean? HUGELY plausible. And between that and the sweet trailer, well, I’m looking forward to this one, even if there’s no word on release dates. I’ll keep you posted though, so keep it here.
