Chris: [Notices Charlotte naked and smiles] Let's just put the knives in your father's back where they belong.
Charlotte: [Putting on a shirt, her right breast and butt are visible] Yeah, that might be more appropriate.

Alyssa Gits Nekkid!! : But, There's Nuthin' Else... :=8/
3 December 1999 | by MooCowMoSee all my reviews

Ok. If the only reason yer interested in seeing this phoney-baloney Vampire claptrap is to ogle Alyssa Milano, the nubile tv cutie from "Who'se the Boss", and moore recently, "Charmed", then yer in luck. Because she does git nekkid, quite a lot actually. Does it add anything to the film? Yes again, since the rest of the film is a big, fat ZERO. :=8P

Well. There's this annoying no-named guy who used to be human(Martin Kemp,"EastEnders" tv show) , until 3 bare-breasted bimbos snack on him while he was sleeping outdoors in the forest on a rock. Now he's a greasy vampire, and decides to fixate on Alyssa Milano, blabbering about how he is "her destiny", even though he is a hundred years older than her, and they've never met. He puts the whammy on her, which consists of him whining and obsessing endlessly about her from afar, and throwing his voice so that Alyssa can hear him whine. In an obvious plot device, no-name vamp guy says he has to "have her" in 3 days or go to sleep. The audience does not get the benefit of waiting 3 days. Alyssa is the "prudish virgin" on a campus loaded with jerks, sluts, and date rapists - a real American college! She has a bland boyfriend who insists that he needs sex from her NOW, but he's the only semi-nice human in the area. Charlotte Lewis("The Golden Child") is there as well, playing a slutty, sleazy, lesbian photographer who feels up Alyssa in the 1st 5 minutes that they meet. Annoyed that others desire Alyssa's bod, no-name vamp guy starts to chew up all of Alyssa's semi-friends, until they're all dead apart from the bland-boy. In the end, Alyssa becomes a tramp, no-name vamp guy goes to sleep, bland boy gets zapped by some blue vampire lightning (I'm not making this up...), and everyone else is dead. Director Anne Goursaud has made similar piffle before ("Poison Ivy 2", "8 1/2 Weeks 2"), only not as obnoxiously pretentious. The MooCow says sher, ya git yer shirtless Alyssa Milano quota, but the price you pay is a bland, silly, cowtrived film that is about as exciting to watch as foot fungus. If yer willing to pay the price, then maybe this "Embrace" is fer you; udderwise, stick with Alyssa's Celebrity Skin pictures. :=8P
