Synapse to Release Ingrid Pitt’s Countess Dracula on Blu-ray

Countess Dracula Blu-raySynapse Films reps inform Shock that 1971's Countess Dracula, starring Ingrid Pitt, is arriving in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on May 6th.

Pitt stars as Elisabeth Nádasdy, 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 Elès), 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? Countess Dracula is based on the real-life Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a woman accused of torturing and murdering more than 600 girls.
