Critic Reviews for Countess Dracula
Basics are covered well by Sasdy, who delivers an interesting take on this devil's pact plot, wisely emphasizing Pitt's allure, his cinematic weapon that gives Countess Dracula the bite it deserves.
There's barely enough material here to fill a 22-minute episode of The Twilight Zone, let alone a full-length movie.
Audience Reviews for Countess Dracula
Hammer films compelling period piece horror drama concerning the aging Countess Elisabeth Nádasdy, played brilliantly by the late great Ingrid Pitt, who after the death of her husband is left in sole possession of her great estate. No longer able to seduce young men, the old woman grows jealous and discontented; until she accidentally discovers that she can restore her youth and beauty by bathing in the blood of virgin girls. The effect is only temporary, and regular blood baths are required to stay in her youthful state, it begins to require ever more young victims and the trail or bloodless corpses is beginning to arouse suspicion. Fine direction by Peter Sasdy, with solid supporting performances from Nigel Green, Sandor Eles, Maurice Denham, Lesley-Anne Down, Patience Collier, and Peter Jeffrey. Ornate and exquisitely detailed costumes and settings; contributing to a rich-looking production that totally disguises the film's low-budget. A captivating motion picture. Highly Recommended.
Gave it a spin off the To-Watch Pile and I can happily say, it was well worth the wait. Ingrid Pitt is gorgeous and the period setting is well-realized, I loved it from start to finish. Well worth a rental.
A very poor version of Countess Elizabeth Bethory.
