The Bloody Countess: The Atrocities of Erzsebet Bathory

The Bloody Countess is Valentine Penrose’s disturbing case history of a female psychopath, a chillingly lyrical account beautifully translated by Alexander Trocchi author of Cain’s Bookwhich has an unequalled power to evoke the decadent melancholy of doomed, delinquent aristocracy in a dark age of superstition.

By middle age, she had regressed to a mirror-fixated state of pathological necro-sadism involving witchcraft, torture, blood-drinking, cannibalism and, inevitably, wholesale slaughter.
