Production on the creepshow starts this week in, appropriately, Transylvania with rookie helmer Andrei Konst. Lady Of Csejte follows the murderous doings of Hungary’s Elizabeth Bathory, the sadistic 16th century “Blood Countess” remembered as history’s most prolific female serial killer. Svetlana Khodchenkova and Isabelle Allen star in the pic, which is being produced by Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) as the first of a new four-picture producing deal he signed with Glacier Films. Schneider and Glacier – which launched at Cannes last year — also teamed on the horror comedy Cooties, which premieres at Sundance next week. Tove Christensen, Sarik Andreasyan, Gevond Andreasyan, Georgy Malkov and Vladimir Poliakov also produce Lady Of Csejte, which was penned by Matthew Jacobs. Wendy Rhoads and Glacier’s Hayden Christensen are exec producing.
