One of Hammer's most enduringly popular films and a benchmark for 1970s horror, Countess Dracula stars Ingrid Pitt in an iconic, career-defining role as the aged countess who must regularly bathe in virgins' blood to regain her fading youth. Genre stalwart Peter Sasdy directs arguably his best Hammer film, from a script by award-winning writer Jeremy Paul.
In medieval Hungary, Countess Elisabeth Nádasdy, an embittered, ageing widow, discovers by accident that virgin's blood causes her skin become youthful and smooth. Determined to retain her new youth at all costs, the Countess forces her lover to abduct a string of young virgins to keep her supplied with the blood she now craves to stay beautiful.
