Carmilla, the Homecoming
Carmilla, the Homecoming is a modern day coming of age story of a teen-aged female
vampire and her chilling tale of revenge. Carmilla's return to her homeland not only unravels the
dark mysteries of the family's legacy, it triggers a series of events that will lead to a confrontation
When the beautiful, cheeky young vampir-ess, Carmilla, returns after hundreds of years in exile
to seek cold revenge on the man who stole her family legacy, she finds herself opening her heart
when she least expects it. On the eve of the first blue moon on All Soul’s Day since 1698, Carmilla
Karnstein returns to her native land to take back her family legacy and title from Lukas Kaiser, a
cruel and evil vampire who seized power from her family.
Upon her return, Carmilla meets her brother, Alex, who has been Lukas’ puppet throughout the
centuries and kept hostage inside the Karnstein mansion. Together they must plot revenge on
Lukas, who will use the power of the blue moon to bring darkness into the world if they don’t stop
him. Unexpectedly, however, Carmilla also meets Kurt, a handsome young artist with whom she
falls madly in love. At the same time, Detective Decker Vordenberg, is summoned by his brother,
the local priest, Father Stephan, to investigate a series of gruesome murders in the same home
town. Although he has no interest in returning home, Decker is lured by the fact that the son of
Angelika – Decker’s childhood sweetheart – is the primary suspect in the case. Cynical by nature,
Decker’s eyes are gradually opened to the fact that the town is about to be overrun by vampires,
and the unbelievable realization that both he and Stephan come from a historic line of vampire
slayers. They must work fast to try to stop the evil Lukas from executing his plan, but in the end
it is up to Carmilla – who wants nothing more than to be human and free to love without
restriction – who must make the most difficult choice of her life.
