    • Synopsis
    • Carmilla (Classic) presents a stylized adaptation of the classic 19th-century gothic novella "Carmilla" by Irish writer Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, the original female vampire in all her splendor, which inspired Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, Dracula, which is the prototype of an entire subgenre of vampire fiction. This film is a romantic, dramatic homage to the Countess, like Francis Ford Coppola's resurrection of the Count. Meanwhile, on the internet, Carmilla has millions of fans waiting for her resurrection.

      The film opens in Karnstein, Austria 1812 during lavish preparations for the ultimate royal wedding. Carmilla is a teenage bride coerced into a loveless marriage to an older General in order to unite powerful families. Before the ceremony begins, Carmilla sneaks away to meet her true love, one last time. Caught in their embrace, her handsome soldier is stabbed by her future husband. As he lies dying in her arms, the General signals his henchmen to annihilate her entire family. Carmilla escapes from the burning castle to see everything she knows and loves go up in flames. There, the devil appears and Carmilla makes a pact with him to avenge her entire murdered family. Open Credits.

      Throughout the rest of the movie, we see Carmilla come alive as the empowering vampiress traveling the countryside to the end of time seeking revenge.
