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

Entertaining little horror romance comedy
1 October 2003 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I just saw this picture and quite frankly, even if not a masterpiece, it is quite entertaining. Has great characters, some are realistic, some are cartoonish, all are entertaining.

Special kudos to Isabelle Cyr, who is really charming as Karmina. Great sets and atmosphere, great puns, all in all, a solid 7.
