Feature follow-up to YouTube vampire series Carmilla is now filming

First announced last October, the feature follow-up to the lesbian vampire YouTube series CARMILLA is currently filming on location in Toronto.

Inspired by the Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu novella Carmilla, the YouTube series ran for three seasons and was set 

at a fictional modern-day university. The story starts when college student Laura discovers that her original roommate has disappeared — replaced by the mysterious Carmilla, who turns out to be a vampire. 

Series stars Elise Bauman and Natasha Negovanlis are reprising the roles of Laura and Carmilla for the film, which picks up five years after 

Laura and Carmilla vanquished the apocalypse and Carmilla became a bonafide mortal human. They have settled in to a cozy apartment in downtown Toronto; Laura continues to hone her journalism skills while Carmilla adjusts to a non-vampire lifestyle. Their domestic bliss is suddenly ruptured when Carmilla begins to show signs of “re-vamping” – from a fondness for bloody treats to accidental biting – while Laura has started having bizarre, ghostly dreams. The couple must now enlist their old friends from Silas University to uncover the unknown supernatural threat and save humanity – including Carmilla’s.

Annie Briggs, Kaitlyn Alexander, Nicole Stamp, and Matt O’Connor are also back in their series roles, with the returning cast being joined by CARMILLA newcomers Cara Gee, Grace Lynn Kung, and Dominique Provost-Chalkley (pictured above). 

CARMILLA: THE MOVIE is expected to be released sometime this fall. The feature can already be pre-ordered through VHX.tv, and if you want to catch up on the series first, all three seasons can be viewed on the KindaTV YouTube channel. I hadn't heard of the Kotex-sponsored series before the movie announcement, so I need to do some catching up myself.
