Directed by prolific editor Anne Gourmand, Embrace of the Vampire revolves around chaste college student Charlotte (Alyssa Milano of Who’s The Boss? fame), whose dreams are being haunted by a vampire (Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet) intent on turning her away from her milquetoast boyfriend so she can provide a source of virginal blood to keep him alive for another hundred years.
While the erotica was scandalous at the time of its release, in retrospect, the scenes are filmed tastefully, with art-house sensibilities that only enhance the mystique that hangs on each frame.
Embrace of the Vampire, was one of the most popular direct-to-video films in the mid 90’s, largely due to Milano’s risqué sex scenes.
