The Horror Of...Halloween Night, Carmilla (Web Series)

After posting on Frankenstein MD, I was a Tumblr post showing this:

Carmilla? There's a Carmilla web series?! Tell me more!

Or, show me.

Well, here's a trailer for the web series.

So it looks like they are playing some with story. In the past I have looked at this tale. So I understand the impulse to tweak it. A lot of the story is static (useful for a web series budget), but it's setting could use updating from the old castle where the young woman is living with her father.

A new roommate is an amusing way to introduce Carmilla. But it is clear they will be playing loosely with much of the story. Still it is fun to see how they call back to the original tale, and to other works of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. And it is clear they are approaching the story with a sense of humor.

Here's the YouTube playlist for the series. And the first four episodes.
