MeatWrangler: Dracula wasn't a cocksucker. So what exactly is the point here?

I like how when people trace their ancestry they somehow are always related to the most popular person from the country their ancestors come from. It is like when people recount their past lives and are always someone famous.

In my past lives I was a king, a pope, a world famous explorer, and president of the United States. I am taking a break right know and living a pretty average life.


D'oh!

Honestly, two of my coworkers are taking next Wednesday off to see the new Twilight movie, leaving me and two other ladies who AREN'T obsessive 18-year old girl wannabes to pick up the slack.

rogue_L_chick: Lampmonster: ASlyLittleFox: Lampmonster: Somebody should make a movie about the Blood Countess. Great sotry.

Stay Alive(^). And no, it isn't.

I can't watch the trailer, but are you saying the original true story isn't interesting?

Is it true though, all of it? I just wonder sometimes...they had bad press/rumor mills back then as well and I am curious to know if we today would understand the difference between a medevial 'tabloid' and a 'true account', verified by multiple parties?? As a countess with holdings, she would have had some enemies. Gossip is still gossip, whether it be in dusty tomes or a glossy rag.

I have no idea which is true. I just think it deserves some thought.


Well, we know that her little clan was convicted of 80 murders, although she was not due to her being royalty in a time when royals were pretty much imune to the law. Although we do know that they did put her in a cell and brick the damn thing closed, leaving her in there for four years until she died. That's not something you do on a whim. She was accused of over 600 murders by someone who in her household, althoug as stated above, they didn't charge her or her friends with that many. So I would say, was everything as bad as made out? Probably not. Was she a crazy ass killer with way to much power. I'd bet on it. In the end though, it doesn't really matter if it's all true, it would still be a great movie.

She was the one with the badihabit of taking baths in the blood of virgins? IIRC the human body has about 1 gallon of blood circulating, and even a small 1 person tub is going to hold 20-30 Gallons , so 600 is not a ridiculous figure

verbaltoxin: I thought Robert Pattinson was related to Pattin's son, considering that's his farking last name.

Everyone wants to be related to money. Too bad though, if your last name is Fuller, you're related to the guy who stomped sheep's wool in pee to make it soft. If you're a Tanner, your ancestors rubbed poop on animal skin to make it stretchable. And I think you Bakers, Smiths, Shoemakers, Masons, Carpenters, Farmers, Millers, and Coopers know where your family trees start.

/Last name is Pryor
//Ancestor was a guy who worked for an abbot


Yeah. I have one of those Old English trade surnames but the Great Grandfather I get it from wasn't married to that Great Grandmother and may have been Slovenian and changed his name.

I know a lot more about my mom's side of the family. This (new window)is one of my great-great grandfathers on my mom's side.

She should have hired Sam Raimi to produce the victims. Each one could have filled a tub, and quickly at high pressure as well.

Heh. The really sick thing about the story is that due to the mind boggling differences in the classes at that time, nobody raised an eyebrow when she started killing peasants. It only got anyone's attention when she decided that common blood wasn't powerful enough to keep her youth any longer and she started killing highborn girls. This is probably also why they were charged with so few. Why bother charging them for killing a nobody?

I lean that way myself, I seriously doubt she was ever charged with the murders of any common folk. She was alive at a time in history when someone could murder thousands of people as long as they made sure they weren't related to anyone who cared.

Well, they do both suck. And incidentally, they are working on a biopic of Bathory, "The Countess."

And Alexander the Great was Macedonian, not Greek. Technically they are different.

It wasn't that she decided that the blood of commoners wasn't enough. She ran out of peasant girls and started working on the lower levels of the nobility.

It is downright scary how much this guy looks like my son. I keep telling him to not bathe or shave for a couple days, roll outta bed, throw on some sparkly make-up and go sulk around at the mall. He could make a fortune on fake autographs.

The story of Elizabeth Bathory would make classic telling. You could start with when she is condemned to death, but the punishment is changed to being immured. Show her having flashbacks to going psycho over her first gray hair or wrinkle or sag, and killing a housemaid. Then her in her dungeon, pleading with the guards who are under orders not to speak outside her small cell. Flashback to more of her career, her degenerate practices with her lovers, then back to the cell. Her examining her drawn face in the bowl of water she gets every day, seeing her hair falling out, her teeth loosening and coming out from the ravages of scurvy from her bread and water diet, holding up her fingertips staring in shock at the fresh blood from her gums, remembering sharing a tub of blood with her perverted young lover...I suggest Scarlett Johannsen. The CGI could do great stuff with the aging/decay bit.
