A telling of the classic novel, adaptation of the 19th century gothic novella “Carmilla”, by Irish writer Joseph

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 of power.
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.
