Hellboy and his team face off against a new supernatural threat while Professor Bruttenholm must investigate the possible reemergence of a vampire he had slain decades prior.
The villainess is based on Countess Erzsébet Báthory (Elizabeth Bathory in English) of Transylvania, who reportedly had three hundred young serving women put to death, in a human sacrifice cult in the early 1600s.
The years have not been kind to you.
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: Nor you.
Erzsebet Ondrushko: So frail. Time has turned you to glass. I pity you.
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: And I you. Growing old is not the worst fate that can befall a person... but you ceased to a be a person long ago.
The goddess Hecate can be pronounced either 'heck-a-tee' or 'heck-ate'. The latter is used here. It probably originated among actors performing William Shakespeare plays (which often listed the Roman deities), when they saw the word in print and used their own judgment when speaking it. These mispronunciations then became standard Shakespearean theater convention, and have crossed from pop culture to the common language whenever ancient figures are discussed. Honored Shakespearean performers continue to pronounce Jacques and Marseilles as "Jakies" and "Marsellus" in the context of the play, and use the "ay" sound (rather than the classical "ah") for the a's in Cleopatra and Coriolanus, the latter being especially giggle-worthy.
After the credits you hear Tom Manning's voice briefing on a certain creature, then you see a figure firing several shots.
