If, on Saturday, you heard what you thought was the sound of a thousand queer humans shouting and then crashing to the floor as they fainted away like a bunch of goats, you were correct. That’s exactly what you heard. The noise came from Canada, where Toronto FanExpo was in full swing, and the source of the ecstasy and agony was the release of teaser for The Carmilla Movie, which stars your queer favorites, Elise Bauman and Natasha Negovanlis.
It is … surprising! All in good ways! For starters, it’s bizarre and delightful to see a camera moving around these characters instead of sitting stationary like the webcam format of the web series. The production values are much higher than I expected. Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp!) is everywhere. And lord, the nostalgia. The series hasn’t been gone long enough for the movie trailer to set my heart on fire like this, but here we are! Also, apparently, TIME TRAVEL. It’s sexy and weird and sexy and pretty and sexy and sexy.
The Carmilla Movie lands on October 26, just in time for Halloween!
