Tilda Swinton the Latest Elizabeth Bathory in ‘The Blood Countess’

According to Director Ulrike Ottinger’s website, Tilda Swinton (Constantine, The Chronicles of Narnia) will be the latest actress to star as the psychotic (yet lovely) Countess Elizabeth (Erzsebeth) Bathory in The Blood Countess (Die Blutgrafin). She’ll star alongside Isabelle Huppert, Udo Kier (Suspiria), Sophie Rois, Udo Samel, Irm Hermann, and Nicholas Ofczarek. You’ll find the full synopsis below, alongside a look at Swinton and Huppert meeting the producers at last year’s Cannes market.
Impatiently awaiting the arrival of her devoted maid Hermine, the countess Erzsébeth Báthory, also known as La Comtesse Sanglante, a tigress in human disguise, ascends into the open daylight. At breathtaking speed, the two women race through a Vienna of ghoulish beauty.

Their entourage: Báthorys nephew Bubi, a vegetarian vampire who refuses to follow family traditions, his therapist, two wacky vampirologists, some members of the duelling fraternity “Vampiria”, an all-female music ensemble, and many more. “Wiener Blut”, Viennese blood is shed by the buckets while the hearts of the present Habsburgians and Viennese beat high. This is a cracked journey to the roots of a myth that has lost nothing of its appeal: to the Vampyre Empire! Naturally, the showdown takes place at Vienna
