The episode was written by playwright Ray Canale (his only one for NIGHTFALL) and featured veteran stage and screen actress Kate Reid (photo left) as Countess Báthory. Canale said to me, in a 2004 telephone interview, that he had written the story with Kate Reid in mind, but was told that it would be impossible to get her. Undaunted, he drove to her Toronto home one night and left the script on her doorstep. After reading it, she contacted Bill Howell and asked to play the part.

Two episodes of the 1980s Canadian horror serial "Nightfall".

NIGHTFALL The Blood Countess. by Ray Canale Read by a Full Cast. Bill Howell, one of Canada’s best radio dramatists, produced the Nightfall series shortly after entering the CBC’s radio drama department in the early ‘80’s. Based on the true story of a sadistic noblewoman, The Blood Countess typifies the program’s sound-excellent actors chewing the scenery in turgid scripts full of horror and devoid of both subtlety and taste

Nightfall was a radio drama series produced and aired by CBC Radio from July 1980 to June 1983. While primarily a supernatural/horror series, Nightfall featured some episodes in other genres, such as science fiction, mystery, fantasy, and human drama.

this is another superb production in the Nightfall series. I have to say Next to the Star Wars audio dramas this audiobook comes a close second. the acting is excellent and really brings the story to life. this book deals with what Bram Stoker must have come across while doing his research for Dracula. It tells the story of Countess Elizabeth Battaorey a noble in the 17th century in Hungary. Upon learning that her beloved husband the Lord Battorey has been killed in a battle away from his land she goes mad and seeks out a way to bring him back to her. Her servent introduces her to a witch and together these three undertake a grizzly trip into torture, vamprism and satan worship. Young girl after young girl is brought to Castle battorey only to be drained of blood and mutalated. Under the guidence of the witch Darvoulla the countess sinks ever more deeper and deeper into horror and mayhem until her kingdom can no longer deny the truth. this story would be shocking enough if it was only fiction but this is in fact a true story and all the events narrated did actually happen. Highly recommended if you love audio horror you will devour this production in no time.
"Nightfall" was a radio drama series by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the early 1980's. The stories were generally horror or suspense, and tended to be of very high quality in production, writing and acting - don't believe the Audiofile review on that count. You can't put on a quality series without coming out with the odd clinker, though, and that is where the two episodes that form the story of "The Blood Countess" come in.
Although this is one story, the story of Elizabeth Bathory, it was done over two 1/2 hour episodes of the "Nightfall" series. Unfortunately, the additional time taken for the story really doesn't seem justified - it comes off as a series of unfocussed episodes that are loosely connected. The acting goes over the top too many times, and the entire story is just plain unsatisfying.
If you are a fan of "Nightfall", you might want to hear this one to help you appreciate how good most of the rest of the shows were. If you are new to "Nightfall", don't let this story be the first one you hear, or, if you do, don't judge the entire series by it.
