English A very enjoyable Hammer adaptation of Le Fanu's classic in all respects. It’s charming in the acting, and straightforward in design. The subtle lesbian touch sometimes turns very explicit. The peculiar marriage with the original text is also priceless. As a result, it is possible to accept the change of location and the imperfectly-applied historical narrative. The Karnstein Trilogy started so promisingly... It's just hard to choose whether Ingrid Pitt was more suited to Carmilla or Bathory. ()
