Bathory: Countess of Blood is a slightly sympathetic take on the character and points towards the allegations having their source in politics and other noblemen wanting to take over her vast wealth and property.
Erzsébet is sticking with her Tudor style now. I was a movie buff back then and it was kinda compulsory, with all the hype about it being a new Juraj Jakubisko film and a big budget production aimed at European market to boot. Which is main problem of the whole film. Anyway, it pisses off her sons-in-law. Also, holding a modern riding crop.
Sorry for being so negativistic, I may not disagree with you in this case when it comes to quality of the movie, not the historical and costume accuracy , but I am still a fan. Bathory: Countess of Blood is a film released in and directed by. György creeps on her in the dark. But the provenance is weak, and to 1620s-1650s portraits of her descendants. Erzsébet takes her kids and her artist pal to a nearby Transylvanian principality, where she argues with a dude named György Thurzó who both has the hots for her and kind of hates her. Especially when compared with The Countess, which I watched after you reviewed it here, and really enjoyed! This is where the crazy hits the fan.

However, I love your costume analysis. The length of the thing actually made the comic relief scenes with monks quite refreshing. A few notes about the costumes of the period. Thats what I must like about Cranach, Velazquez and Peter Lely…they all seem to paint imaginary clothes and the same exact clothes on every subject! Three Wishes for Cinderella has nice renaissance-ish costumes and feisty Cinderella that can ride a horse and shoot from crossbow better than the prince. Hell, they could have worn them with ruffs for all I care, I also love cranach lol and the necklaces which are clearly made up for his 16th century glamour portraits!

I am assuming the main issue with the costumes came from budget, I am guessing alot of this stuff was rented except obviously the ruffs, both black and white and maybe the portrait costume I am probably way off but the most historically accurate red and gold gown reminds me heavilly of the gown worn in the Brothers Grimm but I know it isnt Honestly, another way they could have just did it, is used another artist as inspiration instead of Velazquez. I, too, would wear the shit out of the black beaded whisk ruff.
György frames Erzsébet for some murders to get back at her I swear, he also did this 15 minutes ago. Try your luck with cheaper films. The end titles say rude things about him and nice-ish things about Erzsébet. Erzsébet Bathory lived from August 7,1560, to August 21, 1614, and no reliable portraits of her survive. Ferenc is wounded and staying in Sárvár, western Hungary, so Erzsébet heads there. György tries to come on to Erzsébet at the funeral, which gets him slapped down. This one just looks cracked-out.
