Embrace of the Vampire (2013)
More Stefan, please
Simply put: Less T&A and more Stefan. Victor Webster plays a fang-tactic vamp, but I wish he was in the story more. It would've been nice to see him shirtless to make up for the T&A heavy movie.
This remake is not quite as erotic as the original. It's actually borderline softcore porn at times. If I recall the original, there were plenty of dream sequences between Alyssa Milano and Martin Kemp, which helped build anticipation. This film, on the contrary, didn't build that anticipation enough. There was hardly any chemistry between Stefan and Charlotte. Also, Charlotte's constant delusions and/or flashbacks took too much time from the movie.
The scenery, although beautiful, seems heavily influenced by the Twilight films -- rain, dense forests and mountains minus a pack of wolves.
It's a decent effort compared to many recent vampire flicks( Kiss of the Damned might be the best one released in the last decade). Victor Webster made this film enjoyable, but barely.
