Based on a True Story

They should have put that in the game description. Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian; 7 August 1560 – 21 August 1614) was a real person. She was accused of torturing & killing hundreds of people but her family had enough wealth & power that the case never went to trial. She was placed under House Arrest & had to live the last 4 years of her life in a set of rooms in the family castle.

Do a Search for "Elizabeth Bathory" & check it out. She was a real Psycho.

There is a 2009 film that also covers the controversial Bathory family, entitled "The Countess." [Removed by Moderator]

Julie Delpy wrote, directed & starred in this movie. And, the movie's take is similar to the plot line of this game.

Of additional interest: there is sufficient historical evidence for a conspiracy theory, based on religious, political & financial motives. The theory indicates that the Countess was innocent and framed. [Removed by Moderator]

Hi Everyone,

It's great that you're to discuss the main character of Bathory: The Bloody Countess, but I did want to stop by with a reminder of the Forum Rules, especially:
