Embrace Of The Vampire

"Weak"

Embrace Of The Vampire Review


You have to wonder what Alyssa Milano was thinking when she opted to take the lead role in the cheapie, borderline-sexploitation flick Embrace of the Vampire. Who's the Boss? had wrapped in 1992, and a few TV movies (including a turn as Amy Fisher in '93) didn't kick-start her film career at all. Embrace took her into the realm of B-movies and hard. She's topless for about half the film, though her character is supposed to be a virgin being seduced by a vampire for unknown ends on the eve of her 18th birthday. (Mind you, Milano already had a tattoo above her crotch, kind of ruining the "innocent" effect.) It's a miracle she came out of the funk, landing a cushy role in Charmed and a spokesperson job for 1-800-COLLECT. Way to go, Alyssa.

The story here is a non-starter, just one big update of the Dracula legend, but lacking any sophistication, pacing, or even much logic. This isn't a tragic love story, just an excuse for a lot of sex parties and shots of Milano's breasts. So if that's what floats your boat, give it a rental.
