Carmilla
12 September 2014 | by snickzSee all my reviews

Carmilla is a short story written by Sheridan LeFanu which helped influence Bram Stoker to write Dracula.

The characters are good, but Meg Tilley is especially convincing as the beautiful, mysterious, yet evil Carmilla, who befriends a lonely, and overprotected Marie, played by Ione Skye, who soon finds herself under Carmilla's spell. After a series of grisly murders reveals Carmilla as a bloodthirsty vampire, it's a race against time for Marie's father, and a local inspector to try to save Marie against Carmilla's power. If you come across this hard to find Showtime Classic, you owe it to yourself, to give it a try.
