SERVANTS OF BLOOD
Servants of Blood is a haunting look at the legend of Elizabeth Bathory, the 16th century Countess who brutally tortured, raped and murdered more than 650 of her own servant girls to bath in their blood. The series is told through the eyes of the terrorized people in a small Hungarian village under the control of the evil and mysterious Countess. Local girls are being taken to the castle by the dozens and made servants to Countess Bathory and very few ever heard from again. Amongst the town, whispers of mysterious happenings float through the air but very few helpless peasants have dared to speak out. Inside the castle, a group of servant girls lead by Louisa, a teenage peasant stripped of her nobility, plot to escape the horrors of Bathory’s obsession with blood and its eternal power. Louisa soon realizes that escape from the castle may be possible but escape from Bathory’s reign over the town is not. Her only choice to truly save her sister from violent death is to bring down Countess Bathory.
Power and beauty come at a cost.
