Having fled religious persecution in France,
Carmilla is traveling down the Mississippi River
with one of the early French expeditions of
the "new continent". She entertains her fellow
voyageurs and followers with ancient stories
of pagan goddesses and warrior women.
When a priest overhears Carmilla's
stories he condemns her as a heretic
and has her buried alive. Over three
centuries later Carmilla rises from her
grave in Northern Iowa and seeks
revenge on a small rural community.

Inspired by Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
