Vampire Secrets. Part 3 . Elizabeth Bathory

Part 2 of the documentary about vampires continues with more about the noble Elizabeth Bathory and her torturing, biting and killing young virgins, drinking their blood. Is possible the Bram Stoker was inspired also by Bathory when writing his novel. Her obsession for blood is a then reloaded in Dracula.

The rituals involving blood are in fact common in many cultures and blood is associated with power, but in European tradition drinking blood, especially human is considered a deadly sin.
