Oh Hammer, is there anything you can't make entertaining? This is based around the story of Countess Erzsebet who apparently killed many females gruesomely for her own youth to bath in the blood. This time around we meet an ugly aged Countess Bathory who has to keep killing busty young ladies in order to change into a young girl and pass herself off as the daughter she banished (because when her husband died her husband only left half of her estate to her and half to the daughter). It gets especially taxing when she has a handsome young suitor who she has to keep her secret from, when her face starts to age during their wedding things take a real downhill turn. Pretending to be your own daughter can really only get you so far! This was made with wit and well it's extremely easy to watch, and interesting kill for youth spin and with all of the gothic sets and everything it's really impressive as per usual what they were able to turn out. Hammer fans should definitely enjoy this one (especially if you like busty lasses)!
