It's been a long time since we've heard any word on the Sharon Hinnendael-starring remake of the ground-breaking 1995 Alyssa Milano-starring erotic vamp tale EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE, with our last word on the flick coming more than a year ago. Now comes word that Anchor Bay will be releasing both the remake and the infamous original film on Blu-Ray this October.
Anchor Bay has announced the home entertainment debut of the erotic horror film EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE, starring uber-hottie Sharon Hinnendael (RITES OF PASSAGE, "Look"), Tiio Horn ("Hemlock Grove"), C.C. Sheffield (“True Blood”), Chelsey Marie Reist and Victor Webster. The film will be available on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD October 15th. The film is a reimagining of the 1995 cult classic version starring Alyssa Milano, which will also be made available on Blu-ray for the very first time on October 15th.
EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE stars Sharon Hintnendael 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.
When we first reported on the remake, it was being described to us as a 'supernatural 50 Shades of Grey', which led us to believe that the female viewers would be eating this one up. But seeing as it is a remake of the film that made many guys who grew up watching "Who's the Boss?" very, very happy indeed, I'm sure there will be plenty for the fellas to enjoy here as well.
