The beautiful Ingrid Pitt (The Wicker Man, Where Eagles Dare) stars as Elisabeth Nadasdy, an aging Hungarian Countess who discovers she can reverse her aging by bathing in the blood of young women. While in her youthful state, the Countess falls for the handsome Lt. Imre Toth (Sandor Eles), and impersonates her own daughter to win his affections. Soon, girls in the village go missing... kidnapped and murdered by the Countess and her steward, Julie (Patience Collier) to satiate her horrifying bloodlust. Can Elisabeth live a life of deception with her grotesque lust for blood to stay eternally young, or will her ghoulish secret finally be revealed? Co-starring Nigel Green (Jason and the Argonauts, Zulu). Considered as one of the more underrated films from the latter days of the Hammer Films dynasty' (Donald Guarisco, Allmovie.com), Countess Dracula is based on the real-life Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a woman accused of torturing and murdering more than 600 girls.

Not only do you get the movie, but you get these special features:
Countess Dracula Still Gallery with moving pictures and music
Immortal Countess: The Cinematic Life of Ingrid Pitt (although this is a nice bio featurette, it mainly focuses on her few major movie roles "The Vampire Lovers", "Countess Dracula", "The House That Dripped Blood", "Where Eagles Dare", "The Wicker Man" and talks about her very first appearance in the "Sound of Horror")
Archival Audio Interview with Ingrid Pitt, which is just wonderful.
The movie is DTS HD 2.0 original mono soundtrack or Audio Commentary with Actress Ingrid Pitt, Director Peter Sasdy, screenwriter Jeremy Paul, and author Jonathan Sothcott
Ingrid Pitt shines in this movie, as she transforms from a frumpy old countess into a beautiful young, voluptuous woman with the help of virgins' blood! Quite eery, but so well done in this film. Unfortunately, Ingrid is not with us today, but her talents are so visible in this well-written, well-directed film. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this movie to lovers of vampire movies, or for those who wish to watch a well-written, well-acted horror movie. This one WON'T DISAPPOINT!!
