Based on the true story of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, perhaps one of the greatest mass murderers of all time. She was a woman who tortured and killed over 600 young women for their blood.
Too noble to be executed, in 1610 the 'Bloody Lady of Cachtice' was bricked up in a set of rooms in her own castle in Slovakia. Why then should the young and beautiful Katya be at the castle door attracting the close attention of the gaoler and wanting a job looking after Countess? Is it revenge or some more ghostly visit from Bathory's past? And if she should help her escape....
Pull on your headphones and Horror-fi yourself. 'Revolutionise' is an often overused word; however, this is what Horror-Fi achieve with their new recording technology/process for recording audio drama. Horror-fi’s highly innovative production technique allows you the listener to immerse your aural senses in the very heart of the drama. Listen through head phones and experience the ultra vivid world the 3D Audio recording technique creates inside your mind.
Beautiful horrific voice acting for this 3D horror fi audio book, the dripping of water as they travel in the castle and the foot prints echoing as they enter deeper into the depths of shadows.
I loved this experience and story, the only little problem I had was the audio levels of the characters, in order to hear someone I turnt it up, to then be blasted in the ears by someone else nearer to the viewers view point. Or to hear the added sounds and atmosphere you need it all the way up to be blasted from both sides when things get heated.
Overall I loved it, but this volume levels are the only factor preventing this book from getting a 5 outta 5.
Great story, really well acted....and the delivery - wow! If you want to get totally absorbed in a story this is the future. Ideal for the horror genre, the atmosphere created through the binaural recording puts you at the heart of the action - you are simply 'in' the story and makes for a brilliant listening experience.
