Hell Light

Elizabeth Báthory haunts me in part because I am Hungarian, but also because over the centuries her legend has transformed the horror genre. She is in equal measure scary and erotic. Rendering her artistically demands an element of subtlety.

Lady Ophelia, around whose image the animation running above centers, is Hungarian, scary, deeply erotic, and she possesses the sensibility wherefrom to channel the light within the Queen of Hell.
