Embrace of the Vampire (1995)
Review by Michael Mahoney

5 / 10
Last year, I saw a film called Embrace the Darkness, from 1999. It was a slow-moving, softcore erotic vampire seduction flick. If I had to guess, I would say that it ripped off this movie, which has most of the same elements, to my lamentation.

A vampire must seduce an innocent and virginal girl in three days or his long lifespan will finally be at an end. Personally, I can't imagine this plot being done in an engaging way. The nudity throughout the film, from a party orgy to a lesbian seduction scene (complete with some 90's R&B tunes), doesn't make up for the fact that the movie is so damn sluggish. The few kills we do get aren't overly impressive, and really, aside from the nudity, I can't imagine why anyone would go out of their way to see this.

Admittedly, it does has Jennifer Tilly, who is appropriately attractive here. And while I don't know either of them, the main character, played by Alyssa Milano, and Charlotte Lewis, were both pretty cute, and their nude scenes didn't go amiss. But long-winded sensual seduction sequences don't make for that enthralling a film, so the performance of Martin Kemp doesn't do much for me (especially his over-dramatic dialogue).

The one plus this has over Embrace the Darkness is the fact that this is just about an hour and a half, instead of an hour and forty-five minutes. But it still drags, and while the story might be competently done, and the nudity itself was welcomed, I just couldn't get into it at all, and wouldn't much recommend it.
