Movie Info

Sheridan Le Fanu's erotic horror tale -- the inspiration for Hammer Films' bosom-heaving "Karnstein Trilogy" and Roger Vadim's Blood and Roses -- is given a bit of whitewash in this tepid episode of Shelley Duvall's made-for-cable "Nightmare Classics" series. Inexplicably relocated to the American Deep South in the 19th century, this transposes the tale of a young woman (Ione Skye) who falls under the spell of the enigmatic and beautiful Carmilla (Meg Tilly), a lesbian vampire whose lust for women includes a hunger for female blood. Tame when compared to the blood-and-breasts quotient of Hammer's Lust for a Vampire, this Southern Gothic variant nevertheless contains a few shocking scenes, particularly one character's horrific "surprise" death.
