A film by Emily Harris

The List





"Carmilla is actively feminine and feminist...

This film alone should be a poster child for allowing women to make films about women... it makes all the difference in the world"

Miranda Riddle, Horror Buzz


"flirts with vampiric blood lust but is most satisfying when it delves into the superstition and repression that squeeze the breath out of life for young women"

Wendy Ide, The Observer 


“Sensual, poetic, dark, and gothic... 

It's about the allure of the unknown, the forbidden, about discovering yourself and finding a strange solace in the danger." 

Film Threat


"Carmilla... a complex, enchanting mystery which draws you in and leaves you obsessing over every last detail."  




“A beautiful and essential addition to the list of Carmilla adaptations, Harris proves again that some passions can transcend death itself.”

Alexandra Meller-Nicolas, Alliance of Women in Film Journalists


“A stunningly beautiful film...the first comparison that comes to mind is Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire.”


Sarah Boslaugh, The Arts STL


“When it comes to the telling of the story, I am smitten. It’s sensual without being gratuitous. It’s subtle but powerful. It’s a masterpiece.”

Ali Chappel, Women in Horror
