Editorial Reviews

CHARLOTTE HAWTHORN (Sharon Hinnendael) arrives at college a timid and repressed freshman. Scarred by a life of foster homes and violent girls' schools, Charlotte is plagued by night terrors. A fencing scholarship got her into college, but she relies on prescription medication just to get through the day. With this fresh start, she's hoping to leave her tormented past behind her - but Charlotte will learn that her future and her past are linked forever by a dark and bloody secret.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh just Eh November 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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

1.0 out of 5 stars Black Swan, anyone? October 17, 2013
I've read a few reviews saying that this remake is more like, "Black Swan" than the 1995 original starring Alyssa Milano. The only similarities between the two are: the title, that it takes place on a college campus and a vampire. That's basically it. Another reviewer wrote that this movie plays so much like, "Black Swan" that there should be a drinking game. Instead of ballerinas, you get fencing and vampires.

Sharon Hinnendael, who plays the lead role of Charlotte Hawthorne, practically sleepwalks through it like a f------ zombie! I'm sorry, but I just could not get interested in her or the overall movie. It seems to take a good long while before we actually get to the vampire or any kind of vampirism. The cover of the movie looks more like the cover of a novel which is VERY MISLEADING! Don't let it fool you.

Yes, for all you guys out there, there is sex and nudity in it, but it's all hardly exciting or noteworthy. There's even a lesbian sex scene, ala "Black Swan" once again. But it comes rather quick and unconvincingly and it isn't even worth talking about. One girl goes down on another, so there's that which was stupid, boring, uninteresting, unnecessary and if you listen closely to the music it even resembles the music from, "Black Swan" and up pops a vampire. Was it a dream or wasn't it? WHO GIVES A S---?!

The guy basically playing the Vincent Cassell character (with fangs) is Victor Webster who plays both, Professor Brendan Cole and an earlier character named, Stefan. Why are so many vampires named, Stefan? Anyway, the whole time I was watching this guy, it felt like I was watching Billy Zane. Victor doesn't looke like Billy, but he sure does sound like him.

I'm sorry I bought this STUPID, WASTE of a movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars SLAY OR BE SLAYED October 27, 2013
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really a remake November 7, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a Vampire movie, not scary at all~ October 18, 2013
By johnnyb
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The original movie was much better than this. A very weak plot, the Vampire is not in many scenes and He seems to be tossed in the mix. The dialogue between actors was boring, contrived, and not delivered well at all. There was some nudity and one lesbian sex scene, however there was no real sense of relationship between the young female actors, just thrown together scenes that were not interesting at all. It seemed like every actor just appeared suddenly and read their lines, no edge, intrigue, passion etc. A really boring ending as well, nothing we have not seen 100 times before in countless other movies.

It's hard to believe anyone could like this film. It was like watching soap actors (no acting experience necessary). A waste of film.

Embrace of the vampire was a good movie. The actors were excellent, smart and into their roles. They need a part 2 for this. I wonder what happen after.
