Carmilla – think “Dracula with lesbians”

So what I first started this blog, I wrote reviews and other things that weren’t just my ramblings. Going back to basics, I thought I’d recommend a new series for you all to watch. So far there are 45 episodes (the latest coming out just 15 minutes ago) but have no fear – they’re between 3 and 8 minutes long! It’s a YouTube series called Carmilla. Basic summary is Laura’s roommate goes missing after a night out and Laura uses her video blog to keep the rest of Silas University up to date on the search for the missing Betty. However, the university does nothing to help and allocates Laura a new roommate – Carmilla. Without giving too much away, this show is basically Vampires and Lesbians. It is a modern take on the novella Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu. I’ve decided this shall be one of my holiday reads so I’ll let you know how it goes. 

Two of my friends at uni introduced me to this series and now every Tuesday and Thursday I eagerly await 22:30 GMT even to see the 3 minute clip of my new favourite show. It even tops 24! Now on its second season, Carmilla is introducing yet more characters and its fanbase is growing daily. Give it a try! It mightn’t be your cup of tea but I’d definitely say give it a few episodes before you rule it out. Natasha Negovanlis is stunning even before you see her in leather trousers. Add into it the beautiful Elise Bauman and you really can’t fault it. Or maybe that’s just me… But feel free to let me know! 🙂 or if you have any other suggestions, please comment below! I’d love for you to get to know me better so feel free to suggest any topics or questions you would like me to answer 🙂
Thanks once again to anyone who’s made it this far!
