StarringAnna FrielKarel RodenVincent Regan 

Directed byJuraj Jakubisko

Year: 2008

Plot: The story of a young, innocent countess with a very bad haircut, who became known as serial killer Erzsébet Bathory, told through the lens of sixteenth century Hungarian military might.

Pros: Sheer joy of seeing such rarefied piece of completely disjointed filmmaking.

Cons: The narrator in a gravelly voice-over explains at times the painfully obvious, at times awkwardly clunky turning points of the plot. The whole thing never rises above the level of a provincial theater production, complete with horrid makeup, which is still better than the acting.
