Francis (Camden Toy) and his daughter Anna (Melanie Robel) hold seminars on eternal youth for the rich and depraved, seminars that include eating human flesh, bathing in blood and the occasional flogging of innocent girls (Kaylee Williams, Emerald Smith) for entertainment purposes.

One such rich and depraved person is Madison (Mindy Robinson), a former model who had do end her career due to a scar across her chest, administered by her serialkiller husband (Chris Losicco) and is now hoping for a second career as a writer. Now she really enjoys the depravity going on, and it inspires her, too - plus a few times hopping into virgin blood really takes care of her scar ... but then she finds something a little more likeable than a bathtube full of blood and human flesh as main course, and that's a really old, really valuable coin - actually from the 16th century, a time when Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory (Debra Lamb), allegedly an ancestor of Francis and Anna, has ruled the land.

Madison just nicks the coin, but after her "treatment" is done, and to her full satisfaction, too, she hooks up with fellow guest Carter (Mark Hanson) for a heist on the place, as where there's one coin, and lying around, too, there ought to be more ... right? And as a back-up they bring in master burglar Gerry the Jaw (Robert Z'Dar), and all of them posing as guests of the establishment and Madison and Carter already familiar with the lay of the land, what could go wrong, right? Well, for one that Francis and Anna are not exactly distant descendants of Countess Bathory but her husband and daughter (hey, they deal in eternal youth, so why not being eally old themselves?), and they need special blood to after centuries revive the Countess herself - Madison's blood, actually ...

Director Joe Hollow plays Carter's best friend and underworld contact, genre fave Linnea Quigley Hollow's incestuous wife.

 

A Blood Story sure as heck puts a new spin on the Bathory myth: Sure, the main story still holds enough bloody and sexy bits to live up to expectations, but the main story is actually much more of a heist story with macabre elements, a story that's well structured, featuring likeable but fallible characters, and it tells its on second thought very straight story in many an interesting plot twist. Now add to this a subtle directorial effort that stays away from too much spectacle without seeming "tame" and a really capable ensemble cast, and you've got a pretty cool, original movie!
