Elizabeth is an embittered widow who discovers by accident
that the blood of young women can make her appear youthful
again. Enlisting the help of her devoted servant she kidnaps
a number of women in order to keep her looking young. She
falls in love with a young officer and must keep killing in
order to ensure her youthful appearance...
very loosely on the true story of Countess Elizabeth Bathory,
a 16th century noble woman who had a fondness for bathing
in the blood of virgins, Countess Dracula is not a
bad movie, but the plot is so badly stretched over the duration
of the film that if you are still awake by the end then count
Robinson's soundtrack is probably the best thing about this
movie - and it is a very emotive piece of work. Shame the
trailer tells the same story in under three minutes.
pair of beautiful female orphaned twins leave Vienna to stay
with their aunt and Uncle in the small village of Karnstein.
Their uncle is a fanatical Puritan who has been leading a
witch hunt to try and find the demon who has been draining
the blood of innocent victims...

Peter Cushing as the girls' uncle who burns first and asks
questions later. This is pure sexploitation from beginning
to end. From the minute we are introduced to the twins we

you want them to die says a lot about this movie.
these three movies together under a "vampire collection"
themed release was a mistake. Watching all three movies back
