Editorial Reviews

Sharon Hinnendael ("Look") stars as Charlotte, a timid and sheltered teen who has just left an all-girls Catholic school for a new life at a co-ed university. But an ancient evil has followed her here, tormenting her with disturbing nightmares and tempting her with forbidden desires. It is a hunger that can only be satiated by sensual pleasures of the flesh...and a thirst for blood. It's a battle for her soul...and one she's losing. But Charlotte is a fighter. The chaos and torment threatens to unleash her own inner beast, and anyone even close to her may find themselves embracing their own horrific fate.

Format: DVD
The film opens with a 1735 Bulgarian vampire scene, then switches to modern times. Charlotte (Sharon Hinnendael) attends North Summit University. She hails from an all girl Catholic school. She is pale, virginal, has a blood disease, and is socially inept. She is despised by the fencing team captain (Olivia Cheng), but is loved by Chris (Ryan Kennedy) Sarah (Chelsey Reist) and her fencing instructor (Victor Webster) who all want in her pants. Charlotte is clearly our dysfunctional Buffy who also suffers from hallucinations, bad dreams, and a gypsy (Keegan Connor Tracy) who needs to talk to her.

The vampire aspect is small. We don't find out who the vampire is until an hour into the film. Most of the film centers around Charlotte, her job, her hazing, and her locker room discussions. The film has gratuitous nudity which includes a stripping/drinking hazing scene as well as some girl/girl action that would be classified as soft core porn.

Perv Guide: F-bomb, sex, blond girl/blond girl action, nudity (Sharon Hinnendael, Kaniehtiio Horn, C.C. Sheffield, Chelsey Reist + others) 3 stars for the nudity.

It's a chick flick!!! The vampire shows up in the end of the movie, it's all drama, drama, drama, about the main character which I really didn't care much about and the story drags a lot. Some scenes had me wondering why, really just why, I don't need action all the time but at least give me some good dialog. On the up side film work is great, visually a pleasing movie, good effects

For those who have seen the original, the only similarities this "remake" has is the main character is named Charlotte, there is a vampire who wants her, and Charlotte comes from a Catholic school to attend college. Otherwise, this is a totally different movie. There is a lot of nudity and sex in this, which some of it seemed pointless. It seemed more like a "if we flash boobs, more people will watch" type of thing. The acting wasn't bad but I wouldn't consider it great. And I didn't really like the vampires either. I never understand why vampire movies have the vampire rip off flesh and let blood go everywhere. What is the point of that?
The movie was shot really well though, which is mostly why I'm rating this a three. The cinematography was beautiful. All in all, though, the plot was weak and the ending seemed abrupt, were as the beginning and middle took waaaayyyy to long to get to the point. Just an average movie, nothing spectacular.

I have read a lot of negative reviews of this film and don't agree with most. No, the film does not mirror or match the story or eroticism of the original, which I frankly had some problems with as well. Forgetting that and taken on its own, it is a good entertaining vampire flick. It could have used a little more background to help build the story, such as why Sharon Hinnendael has the dreams and visions that pop up out of nowhere. The end leaves you hanging (you will have to add your own) but all in all I found it entertaining and well done.

This reboot is in a whole different league than the Embrace of the Vampire (EV95) that came out two decades ago, and not just because contemporary film has a number of advantages. In case you missed EV95 (I wish I had), it featured a vampire who was on an inexplicable 3-day deadline, and of course the real reason most people watched: television star Alyssa Milano's implants exposed. As I never have or never will care about Alyssa Milano, the best thing that can be said of EV95 is that it dared to do at least a couple of things I had never seen in a vamp film: [1] a neck bite done thru a net (I think it was a soccer net) and [2] a vampire licking a door for about a half-minute (granted, the door had blood on it, but it was still one the most ridiculous things I have ever witnessed in a film that was not intended to be absurd).

PROs
✔ Actors. Don't be surprised if you recognize some of the faces. Victor Webster: Carlos on Continuum. Kaniehtiio Horn: Rynn on Defiance, also Destiny Rumancek on Hemlock Grove. Ryan Kennedy: Josef on Defiance, Odin Sinclair on Caprica. Chelsey Reist: Harper on The 100. Most of the actors have been in numerous TV shows.

Overall, the remake is not as erotic as the 1995 original with Alyssa Milano & Charlotte Lewis. However, the Charlotte/Sarah love scene in the remake is far more sexually explicit than anything from the original. In fact, it's far more explicit than any girl-on-girl love scene I've ever seen in a mainstream movie (with the possible exceptions of "Bound" & "Femme Fatale").
