More of a cinematic curiosity than true blockbuster material, despite its scale.
Audience Reviews for Bathory
An interesting view of the life of Countess Ezsebet Bathory "The Countess of Blood" who is most known as the most notorious female serial killer of all-time (rumored to have killed thousands of women during her reign to bathe in their blood to maintain her youth. This version of the countesses life is more balanced and yet nonetheless speculation as to what was real concerning the rumors of murders. Anna Friel gives an impressive performance of the imbalanced countess and the movie though grand in scale is unable to really be more than an average yet interesting take on one of history largest mass murderess.
It may not be what you think it is about, but that's okay because I like that it's an opinionated scam of a historical film that tries to be good.
Plays out more like a Monty Python comedy than a serious drama, with a subplot involving roller-skating friar-detectives that makes this already turgid 140-minute bore seem a whole lot longer.
