Watch an exclusive clip from ‘Carmilla’ from writer/ director Emily Harris

Check out the film in cinemas now.

“I didn’t want to make a period film,” says filmmaker Emily Harris about her new film Carmilla. “I wanted to make a film that was set in a period. That’s something quite different.”

Set in late 18th Century rural England, Carmilla is a tender and tragic love story between two young girls. Based on a seminal work of gothic literature, this tale of blossoming adolescent sexuality takes place at a time when religion, repression, fear and superstition ruled society. To celebrate film’s release in cinemas from Friday 16th October, and then its  VOD release on Monday 19th October, we have an exclusive clip to share.

An atmospheric, coming-of-age love story steeped in eerie mystery; a reimagining of Sheridan Le Fanu’s 19th century novella of the same name.  15-year-old Lara (Hannah Rae) lives with her father (Greg Wise) and her strict governess, Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine), in total isolation and is struggling to find an outlet for her curiosity and burgeoning sexuality. When a carriage crash nearby brings a young girl into the family home to recuperate, Lara is enchanted by the eponymous Carmilla (Devrim Lingnau).
