| A New Twist at an Old Tale.
In this Southern Gothic retelling of Sheridan Le Fanu's vampire story 'Carmilla,' a young drifter (Christen Orr) arrives in a rural town seeking the whereabouts of the mother she never knew. When she becomes sexually involved with an emotionally fragile waitress (Hannah Fierman), she exposes the secret of her mother's disappearance and incites the wrath of the girl's overprotective father (William Katt).

William Katt was a nice catch. He has been thrilling audiences for decades, and obviously has the horror credibility with "Carrie" and "House". (More people should also see "Big Wednesday".) The quality of the film is good, even if the acting at times is only mid-level. For what is probably a very low budget film, one should not expect so much. What may be a draw for some are the lesbians aspects. Far more than earlier versions of "Carmilla", this film makes that stuff explicit. Not gratuitous or pornographic, but certainly no secret.
