Countess Dracula 1971 18

94 mins Great Britain Director. Peter Sasdy

Public decency is breached with laudable regularity in Hammer Horror's 1971 tale, based on the legend of Elizabeth Báthory. Ingrid Pitt plays the widowed countess rejuvenated by virgins' blood, and Nigel Green her accomplice and lover, Captain Dobi. Indignity is a theme and, for Pitt, a reality: her role was dubbed, and she never spoke to director Peter Sasdy again.
