Storyline

Translation of the above: Karmina, a young vampire (only 140 years old) flees her Translylvanian castle where she must marry the horrible Vlad to please her father, the mean Baron, and her mother, the eccentric Baronness. Karmina finds refuge in Quebec at the home of her aunt Esméralda, an older vampire who lives among humans thanks to a potion that temporarily transforms a vampire into one of them. Under the effect of the potion, Karmina falls in love with Phillipe, a charming church organist. But Vlad, the Baron and the Baronness soon show up in pursuit of her and turn a poor customs officer, Ghislain Chabot, into a vampire to aid them in retrieving her. Esméralda must become the great vampire of yesteryear to fly to the aid of the lovers. Written by Anonymous

This film is great!
4 October 2003 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like this film when I watched it. I don't know what it is about the movie, but I want to watch it again. I'm not usually into low budget, or Canadian films, and almost missed watching Karmina. I'm glad I did, it has humor that I like, and some of you may think I'm crazy for liking it. The effects aren't grande but the actors are funny. I really liked the character Vlad, his attitude and actions were hillarious. I've seen it twice, but I want to see it again. If anyone knows where I can find it, I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me. It's not a film for everyone, and having it dubbed in English is kind of annoying, but once you look past it all, it's rather enjoyable.
