ROXY BOURDILLON MEETS THE STARS OF YOUTUBE PHENOMENON TURNED FEATURE FILM, CARMILLA

I’m only five minutes into The Carmilla Movie and I’m already gripped. Laura’s tearing down an old-timey corridor, panting in a corseted gown, her heart hammering in her chest and causing mine to do the same, while her 300-year-old ex-vampire girlfriend Carm takes a dip in a literal bloodbath. What the Creampuff is going on?

“ The fact that our fans can see themselves reflected on screen as the heroes what makes the show really unique”

An hour and a half later, and I’m still buzzing. I’ve just watched a loved up, queer female couple on-screen and neither one was killed off. I’ve seen the LGBTQ gang of my #SquadGoals fantasies fight evil, while being hilarious and diverse. Heck, I’ve even marvelled at a masked ball attended exclusively by luscious ladyghosts and rejoiced at a romantic subplot between two queer women of colour (it’s about time smart-mouthed Mel got some action). From a two and a half minute webisode in 2014 to a full-on feature film in 2017, oh Carmilla, the little lesbian vampire “web series that could”, bloody bravo. As a fan of the show who has eagerly binged all three series, I can’t wait to jump on a three-way transatlantic call with its Canadian stars Natasha Negovanlis, who plays broody rock chick vampire Carmilla Karnstein, and her on-screen paramour, Elise Bauman, perhaps more familiar to you as crusading, well-meaning, if slightly tightly wound, reporter Laura Hollis.
