Worthy remake
6 April 2014 | by (US) – See all my reviews

In the 1700s in Eastern Europe a woman arrives at a house where a screaming girl is being held on a table. The woman cuts the girl's arm, pronounces some spell and drips some blood from a vial in the girl's wound. She then places a necklace on her in time when a female vampire attacks and bites a man who's also in the house to protect the girl.

In the present, Charlotte arrives at college. She's very shy, reserved, downright repressed. She's there on a fencing scholarship and has to perform or else she's out. Her parents are dead. She inherited a blood disorder that killed her mom and also has creepy visions. Her roommate is nice to her, but her friend hates Charlotte, who starts working at a coffee shop where the owner develops feelings for her. Some type of psychic also notices Charlotte. And a creepy administrator also takes an interest in her.

Charlotte is taking a literature class that is dealing with mythology-- monsters and the like. The male professor for some reason is also the coach for the female fencing team. While Charlotte tries to stay out of trouble one night she's taken out for the fencing team rookie hazing, where she's made to drink. She's never had alcohol before. That night she also sleeps with another girl. Now her life goes into chaos. She can't fence right, her visions intensify and become more terrifying, she rejects the help from her friends. When she finally visits the psychic lady, things are revealed to her. She's from a line of vampire hunters, as was the girl on the table in the intro. The lady on the other hand is a descendant from the woman who was treating the girl. Charlotte even inherited the necklace from the intro. And it's burning into her skin which means a vampire is near. Charlotte will have to accept her destiny and face the vampire, a vampire who seeks to become human if he only can get ahold of a virgin--like Charlotte.

Embrace of the Vampire has an attractive cast that shows plenty of skin. The location of the college is stunning. The direction is excellent. The story perhaps could have used some work. But at the same time it's not predictable. It's not the usual simplistic evil vampire against some innocent victims story until some hero appears. For a while the story just focuses on on Charlotte and sets the vampire aspect aside, so we could have used some more vampire action. The ending is sudden and strange. But it sets up things for a sequel which I'm looking forward to.
