You know, there’s just something about Tilda Swinton that totally freaks me out and attracts me at the same time. She’s got this weird sort of Clockwork Orange-type vibe (especially in this shoot) that makes her androgynous, ethereal, and frankly, compelling to look at. Her recent W spread is definitely not an exception, either.
One of Swinton’s latest films in production is Die Blutgräfin, in which she plays the Countess Elizabeth Báthory, the woman who was accused of slaughtering countless young girls and also allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins to retain her youthful visage.
Making a movie about Elizabeth Báthory is definitely an interesting move, and I think it’s going to be creepy as hell. As far as the selection of Tilda in the lead role? Well. Need I say that she definitely fits the part quite well.
