    1981 In Review - January 

    A teenage boy (Stefan Arngrim), an old woman (Elizabeth Hoffman) and a teenage girl (Kathleen Rowe McAllen) embody Lucifer and two angels sent to stop him.

    In 1830, forty years to the day since the last manifestation of their dreaded vampirism, the Karnstein heirs use the blood of an innocent to bring forth the evil that is the beautiful Mircalla - or as she was in 1710, Carmilla.
