Miss Christina is the dramatization of a 1936 novella written by the famous Romanian author and historian of religions, Mircea Eliade. The film tells the love story between a human and the vampire-like character of a gorgeous young woman who died a violent death. Known in Romanian as a ?”moroi” ?or a “?strigoi”, Miss Christina comes back from the grave to seduce her niece’s fiancé, Egor (Tudor ?Istodor), during his first visit to the countryside family mansion. The lady of the house (Maia Morgenstern) worships her dead sister’s memory, even to the detriment of her own daughter’s sanity and safety. When Egor realizes that his fiancée’s life is endangered by his unexplainable lust for Miss Christina, he decides to fight the ?”moroi”.?
