Fans of the Canadian web series Carmilla can soon watch their favorite mortal-vampire couple in The Carmilla Movie.

The series, a romance-comedy based on Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu‘s 19th-century cult-classic gothic vampire novella, gets the big screen treatment in 30 cities across Canada on Thursday, October 26.

The rest of the world can watch The Carmilla Movie online that day by pre-ordering it on VHX for $9.99. Then, starting October 27, Fullscreen will be the movie’s exclusive streaming home.

The movie starts five years after Laura, played by Elise Bauman, and Carmilla, played by Natasha Negovanlis, have “vanquished the apocalypse.” Camilla, now “a bonafide mortal human,” and Laura “have settled into a cozy apartment in downtown Toronto.” Then “Carmilla begins to show signs of ‘re-vamping’” while Laura starts “having bizarre, ghostly dreams.” Laura and Carmilla are forced to call on “their old friends from Silas University to uncover the unknown supernatural threat and save humanity – including Carmilla’s.”

The movie’s cast includes Murdoch Mysteries’ Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Mary Kills People’s Grace Lynn Kung and The Expanse’s Cara Gee. They are joined by web series regulars including Luvvie’s Annie Briggs, Couple-ish’s Kaitlyn Alexander, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Nicole Stamp and Murdoch Mysteries’ Matt O’Connor.

The web series, shot from the single-frame perspective of Laura’s vlog’s, was written by Jordan Hall, and co-created by Hall, Jay Bennett, and Steph Ouaknine. It first launched in 2014 and has since won Streamy, Webby, Shorty and Canadian Screen awards.

Carmilla’s three seasons consist of three to seven-minute episodes. You can stream them for free on Youtube channel KindaTV.

You can also watch all of the first season, in one 150-minute compilation, right here:
