Based loosely upon the classic story by J. Sheridan Le Fanu, this updated vampire soap opera focuses on Laura, who arrives at an isolated town searching for answers to the mysterious death of Monique, her estranged sister. Upon discovering a hidden diary, she soon learns of Monique's dark affair with Carmilla, a mysterious beauty that seduces her into the life of a vampire.Written by
This abysmal 1999 effort should not be confused with the 1999 Carmilla starring Maria Pechukas as the title character. This film is actually titled "The Vampire Carmilla" and is just another gothic Vampire Soap Opera that owes more to Dark Shadows than J. Sheridan La Fanu. The plot, and I call it that in the loosest sense of the word since it's merely a rehash of poorly conceived soap opera themes, concerns a young woman's search for her missing sister and the vampire/lesbian affair that develops from that search, and, in flashback, the sisters affair with the titular vampiress. Do yourself a favor and avoid this mess. Opt for CARMILLA (1999) starring Maria Pechukas, Heather Warr, Andy Gorky (a girl) and H.Z. Boteler, produced by Evil Clown Productions and available from Draculina Cine`. You won't be sorry.
