We all love Halloween and can appreciate the gore and horror that time of the year brings.
From scary movies to haunted houses, there is no shortage of horror during Halloween.
Scary movies are known for their gore, from the Saw series to the Final Destination series.
These movies feature a large amount of gore, making them almost comical in their depiction.
Imagine, though, if you had to experience this gore firsthand, watching a woman burn to death, having a limb cut off, and so much more.
Elizabeth Bathory’s castle became during her reign of terror, causing her castle to become an actual House of Horrors.
10 /10 Beginning Of Elizabeth's Reign Of Terror
After her husband died on January 4th, 1604, Ferenc entrusted his heirs and widow to Gyorgy Thurzo.
From 1602 to 1604, she was accused of crimes against female servants and minor noblewomen, who came to her for training and education. Most of her crimes occurred after her husband’s death.
Some of her victims were covered with honey and left outside for insects to eat them. In colder weather, they were stripped naked and forced into deadly ice baths.
She also liked to torture girls by putting needles into their fingers, cutting their nose or lips, or whipping them.
She would also bite her victims on the shoulder and breast, along with burning their flesh, including their genitals. This suggested some of the attacks were sexually motivated, but this remains unclear.

Rumors of her crimes spread throughout the kingdom, and Lutheran minister Istvan Magyari made complaints against her, prompting King Matthias II to assign Count Gyorgy Thurzo.
Thurzo came to her castle on December 29th, 1610. He came to investigate her supposed crimes against women of noble birth.
He was not concerned about the mistreatment of servants, but he surprised her in the middle of torturing a victim. He immediately had her imprisoned in her home.
