Trivia

Alyssa Milano's first on-screen nude scene, though she had posed totally nude for magazines before making this film. She said the nude appearances taught her to begin requiring a nudity clause in her contracts giving her "full control" over all her nude scenes. In a 1995 interview, she explained her motivation for some explicit scenes in Embrace of the Vampire: "I'm not going to say that I was manipulated into doing things that I didn't want to do. I did it because it was a woman director and I felt protected. And I learned a lot as far as knowing where the camera is and what coverage they need so that it's not all explicit." See more »

Quotes

Charlotte: [Changing clothes and standing naked, her butt and the side of her breast are shown] You know, she didn't have a choice
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.
Chris: You know, I can't help wishing you had inherited a little bit of his promiscuity.
Charlotte: [Buttoning up the shirt, still naked from the waist down with her butt visible] Yeah, but look where it...

Would-be Rip-off of "Interview with a Vampire"
18 November 2000 | by aesgaard41See all my reviews

What has happened to vampire movies in the last twenty years? This is a dreadful movie that belongs in that nameless back room in the back of the local video store. Not that I'm complaining,I think Alyssa Milano is a great actress with an incredible figure, but I think she only took this movie to prove she is not a little girl anymore, as if anyone remembers that she was the daughter on "Who's The Boss." Around the same time as this picture, she also did a similar role as a succubus on an episode of the "Outer Limits" who also seemed to get off on nudity. This movie may not be pure pornography, but the soft porn in it seems to be the only reason guys and frat houses are renting it from video shelves.The vampire story in this takes third stage as Alyssa seems to shed her clothes every ten to twenty minutes. Hello, where's the vampire? He is supposed to be the star of the picture, but we only get to see him whenever he's complaining or grousing that he can't bite Alyssa. Dracula, Lestat or Barnabus Collins could knock the stuffing out of him and not think twice about it. I can't believe a woman created this; I would have at least liked to have seen this movie about Alyssa playing a vampire haunting a college who shed her all black clothing before seducing and then killing her own victims, at least that's the way I would like to go (I know that sounds tasteless, but I've seen fair movies out of tasteless ideas). Rachel True from "The Craft" also stars in this farce in a nearly forgotten role, but then, why would she want to remember doing this ?
