Im Versteck der Verdammten ("In the Hideout of the Damned") is the 272nd issue of Spuk Geschichten ("Haunted Stories"), a German comic anthology series primarily following the exploits of the 17th century demon hunter Arsat.
In the eponymous main story, Carmilla has been hypnotised and several attempts on both her life (getting shoved into a lagoon and dragged down by water snakes) and kidnapping her are made until she escapes Arsat, still under the influence of hypnosis. Arsat finds a person involved in it, a gypsy named Leon. Arsat confronts him and he plays innocent, sending Arsat and Gino into a trap on the graveyard where they are attacked by the undead. They manage to find Leon´s real hidehous where he intends to sacrifice Carmilla. They arrive just in time to stop the ritual which causes Leon, who was a dying demon in human guise, to perish. It turns out that sacrificing Carmilla would have allowed him to continue his existence.
The story is identical to Issue 483, with only a slight variation in the coloring, the other stories in the issue are different.
