** ''Film/TheCarmillaMovie'': [[BigBad Elle Sheridan]] was a noble woman who, discovering her lover Carmilla was a vampire, betrayed Carmilla to her mother before her death. Unable to cross into the afterlife with the other souls of the sacrifice victims, Elle grew to [[DrivenByEnvy resent Carmilla and Laura's life together]]. Elle began to torment Laura with nightmares, luring her, Carmilla, and her friends to her mansion. Gathering the souls, Elle manipulated them into preparing a ritual that would help them move on to the afterlife, with Carmilla willingly giving up her human life. Unbeknownst to them, Elle plans on stealing Carmilla's life for her own, and condemning the rest of the spirits back into the hell dimension forever. [[FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse Despite her past]], it's pointed out she wasn't the only sacrifice and the others never turned evil, with Elle admitting to her jealous and [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] motives, with disdain and indifference to everyone else. Elle picks off Carmilla, Laura and their friends, trapping them in their nightmarish hell; Carmilla's in particular reliving Elle's betrayal over and over again. When Laura rescues her friends and the other ghosts to prepare the ritual, Elle makes one final attempt to disrupt them, holding a knife to Carmilla's throat. Originally seen as a tragic figure of Carmilla's past and even a benevolent force in the first season, Elle ended up becoming a dark far cry of her previous self.

** When Carmilla recounts her backstory from the novel to Laura in episode 16, she frequently interjects with hokey asides using sock puppets. Sure it's silly, but it does serve to take the edge out of the trap of many monologues for being too serious. As it is, it provides a few laughs while Natasha Negovanlis' [[HeReallyCanAct genuinely engaging acting]] sells the scene. Thankfully, Laura herself stops the act when she realizes how serious she's being.

* HeReallyCanAct: Not that Annie Briggs didn't get praise for her performance as Perry before, of course, but her performance as the Dean is ''stunning''.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: In the outtakes for season three, we find out what, exactly, the Dean said during her capture [[TakeOurWordForIt that was apparently bad enough to make Laura spit out her food in disgust]]. Annie Briggs was simply instructed to say "something gross," so what was the first thing she came up with? [[spoiler:"I gave Lola Perry a venereal disease."]] Elise Bauman just about chokes on her food, and everyone either cracks up or lets out a CollectiveGroan.
-->'''Annie:''' Too much?


* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Baron Vordenberg]] from season 2 is an [[EvilOldFolks elderly]] Austrian [[AristocratsAreEvil baron]] who is a member of the Silas Board of Directors. When he is first introduced, he [[FauxAffablyEvil seems to be a kind and friendly man]], despite [[FantasticRacism his apparent disdain for vampires]]. Once Laura gets him voted as the Chairman of the Board, he immediately shows his [[ANaziByAnyOtherName true colors]] by ordering a detainment of all vampires and anything supernatural in Silas University. He has some of the students, including Laura's friend Danny--to whom he lies that he will stop after arresting Carmilla and Mattie--recruited into his militia , and preaches anti-vampire propaganda. It is discovered that, despite the potential consequences, he intends to kill Lophiiformes, [[ItsAllAboutMe all to make a name for himself]]. After killing Lophiiformes, he intends to execute Carmilla and Mattie, along with any students protecting vampires; the attempted arrest indirectly leads to [[spoiler:Mattie's death]]. After he almost callously shoots one of his men, Laura starts a resistance against him. In the battle, he has his henchman Theo betray them and kill [[spoiler:Danny]]. In the finale, he has the other board members shot over the announcements and prepares to behead Carmilla, in front of Laura and their friends, taunting them all to their faces while doing so. Despite his seemingly [[ObfuscatingDisability doddering]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity demeanor]], Vordenberg is far more dangerous than meets the eye, his claims of heroism being lies he tells to fuel his ego, not caring who he has to kill to live out his fantasies of personal glory.

* [[{{ScaryBlackMan}} Scary Dark Woman]]: Mel is dark-skinned and AxCrazy.

Added DiffLines:

* IncestYayShipping: There is a following for Mattie/Carmilla. They're NotBloodSiblings, but they consider themselves sisters, and they were sired by the same vampire "mother," so it still counts as incest by most people's standards.


Added DiffLines:

** Perry/Mattie: Permonde
** Mattie/Carmilla: Belstein (Yes, it exists.)

Added DiffLines:

* SpoiledByTheFormat: Any tension that might have been felt regarding [[spoiler: Laura's apparent death]] in the Season 3 finale was instantly banished by the fact the Carmilla Movie trailer had already been released, [[spoiler: showing her alive and well.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Even more so between those who liked [[spoiler:the dean making Carmilla human again]] and those who didn't.

** Mel became this after being {{rescued|FromTheScrappyHeap}}. It helps that she's one of the few characters that's ''not'' constantly blinded by love, panic, or thirst for power, and is one of the only people in the Pit trying to ''do'' something about the Dean's plans.
