Carmilla is a web series based on Sheridan Le Fanu's novella of the same name.The story takes place at Silas University in Styria, Austria. Laura, a 19 year old student realizes that strange things are happening there. Students start disappearing, including her own roommate who is replaced by Carmilla, who appears mysterious and broody. As Laura and her friends Perry, LaFontaine, and Danny investigate the strange disappearances, they realize that Carmilla might be involved.
The series became popular due to it being filmed "vlog" style and usage of transmedia (3 characters have their 'in character twitter and tumblr accounts which fans can interact with). It is also praised for its near all-female cast as well as representation of various queer and non-binary characters. This story has it all, drama, well written dialogue, love problems and hilarious jokes.
The series won AfterEllen Visibility Awards for Favorite Web Series and was nominated for Shorty Awards for Favorite W
