EXSANGUINATA, the new film from SABBATH ASSEMBLY and director GRETCHEN HEINEL, asks: Wherefore the quest for eternal life? To what lengths would any of us go to stave off the inexorable rite of aging, sickness, and finally… death.
The story reveals a noblewoman and her devotees perpetuating their power by preying upon her subjects. With each young victim, the rite of adolescence becomes a rite of death. And for the noblewoman – the COUNTESS BATHORY – the rite of death becomes a rite of adolescence. Roles reversed through blood sacrifice.
