The Horror Honeys: Murder Monday Jam - 'An Execution'

Murder Monday Jam - 'An Execution'

This is what she saw...
The unsuspecting horse was held fast to the ground 
Whilst some soldiers slit open its belly 
The guilty gypsy was shoved inside the horse's belly 
With only his head protruding from the dying 
Beast, another soldier, then sewed up the wound 
With the culprit inside, condemned to die, along 
With the putrifying animal, screaming
The young Countess looked up,
Barely restraining a giggle.

Even if you discount all the myths and legends about Countess Elizabeth Báthory, the fact remains: that was one crazy-ass ladybabe! Known as The Blood Countess, while her exact number of victims is unknown, it is believed to be in the hundreds, making Báthory the most prolific female serial killer in history. This creepy little dirge from Siouxsie and the Banshees recounts one of The Blood Countess's more horrifying acts of slaughter, and if it doesn't give you the chills... well, you're just not human! ~RH
