"Blood Odyssey", a journey through some of the most atrocious atrocities that homo homini lupus may have committed over the centuries. The 'journey' starts with a long exploration of Transylvania and the castles in which Vlad III Tepes lived, the Impaler, a character who was inspired by the Irish novelist Bram Stoker for his immortal 'Dracula'. Continues in the castle of Csejthe where the 'Bloody Countess' Erzsébet Bathory murdered dozens of innocent girls to bathe in their red vital fluid in search of an eternity that instead led her to be walled alive. Then we will go to the forest where he lived and performed bloody slaughter Elly Kedward, the 'Blair Witch'. 'Vampira' actually lived at the end of the 18th century. Does the name of Gilles de Rais tell you nothing? His crazy deeds, his violence on innocent children performed in castles in which he also celebrated 'satanic' ceremonies inspired Perrault for the writing of the famous 'Bluebeard' fable. But your 'journey' certainly does not end here, as other 'blood odyssey', some interesting experiment on the subject and a 'skeptically psychological' interpretation of human folly await you...
