Lee and Daniel are back this week to talk about yet another vampire film - well, it's vampire-like anyway. This week it's Hammer's "Countess Dracula" (1971), directed by Peter Sasdy and starring the lovely and, in a couple of instances, nude Ingrid Pitt. How close does this story, based on the real life "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Bathory, stick to the known facts? Does it go far enough? What's with all the romance stuff and funny hats? The hosts also talk about what they've watched as of late and discuss how they'd remake this film, and who they'd cast and hire as director. Drop your blood-sokaed sponges, towel off, and take a listen.
