Hammer Horror starring Ingrid Pitt in her defining role as the Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory - who is reported to have murdered over 600 young girls.
Bathory discovers that bathing in the blood of virgins keeps her looking youthful and arranges for the kidnapping of her own daughter, Ilona (Lesley-Anne Down), in order to use her blood.
She takes on Ilona's identity and seduces a young man but the supply of blood needs constant topping up otherwise Bathory will age vigorously.
