Irritatingly conservative for a vampire softcore thriller.

Centuries after his rebirth as a member of the undead, a vampire discovers the soul of his beloved princess lover, who has been dead a long time, in the form of Charlotte Wells, an innocent virginal college student. With only three days to spare before his death approaches, the vampire attempts to seduce Charlotte & make her a vampire to save his soul.

This 1994 New Line production was one of two films that actress Alyssa Milano had appeared in right after her role in the family sitcom Who's the Boss had ended after eight years on the air, in an attempt for her to tackle more adult roles. Around the same time as this one, she also appeared in Poison Ivy II: Lily, which was a poor sequel to the Drew Barrymore cult hit that started the cable television erotica trend. Her director from Lily, Anne Goursaud, also directs this film.

Going into the film with the expectation of seeing Alyssa Milano naked & having hot vampire action, I found The Nosferatu Diaries: Embrace of the Vampire to be a very poor film. It is not entirely terrible – there are occasional moments of style & you mostly get what you asked for, with plenty of opportunities for Milano to take her clothes off (but only seeing her breasts & butt, nothing else) & to make out with both men & women (the scene were Milano visits a photography student friend's studio & volunteers for a saucy photo shoot, only to start a girl-on-girl session with the friend is probably the most hardcore the film gets) – but the problem with it is that it is not so much a vampire film than a vampire stalker film.

The biggest problem I had with the film is the same one I had with Poison Ivy II: Lily – its conservatism. Both films appear to have been made as a warning for viewers not to engage in sexual relationships outside of approved grounds – in both films, Milano plays a sweet, innocent thing who gets corrupted by an exterior force & becomes a sexpot who almost gets in over her head before sacrificing her trashy life & returning to the arms of her patient & extremely forgiving boyfriend. While the message is not particularly offensive if taken on its own, it is offensive when seen in what should have been a sexy erotic horror film. Anne Goursaud seems to be acting for the Catholic Church in some way by reversing the sexual revolution of the previous decades & advocating sexual abstinence for young people. What I really hate about the film is that on one hand it is preaching a message for women not to be sexually adventurous, yet on the other hand displaying gratuitous nudity & softcore couplings in an attempt to sell the film as erotica. This contradictory message is annoying & offensive for viewers who wanted an erotic thriller, not an anti-sex rant by what seems to be a proxy for the Catholic Church.

Apathetic Enactment

Formulaic plot: In olden times, boy loves girl, boy becomes vampire, boy loses girl, then finds her centuries later. She's now in love with someone else and... take it from there. This premise still makes sense, but when applied to the story that follows, it crumbles rapidly. The heroine is so vapidly naive, it's laughable. No one, even someone supposedly raised in a convent school as the heroine was, could be THAT unaware. There are nude sex scenes--lesbian, menage a quartre, orgy--making this soft-soft core but that's about all it has going for it.

There's little of the usual blood and gore of a vampire film--the vampires chews, rather than merely bites--and not much of anything else except the titillation of the nudity. Other than that it seems to have had a heavy dose of apathy.

A disappointment and a waste of talent and viewer time...but it did make me nod off so I saved on sedatives.

Alyssa gets them out for the lads.

According to IMDb's summary, Embrace of the Vampire is about an 18-year-old college freshman (Alyssa Milano) who is seduced by a handsome vampire lover (Martin Kemp) who introduces her to a dark world of carnal desires.

WRONG!

To cut a long story short, it's about getting its 22-year-old star Alyssa Milano to show her tits as often as possible! The weak, romantic (or should that be 'new romantic'?) Gothic horror plot merely serves as an excuse for the actress to bare her breasts (with the occasional shot of her ass). Not that I'm complaining of course—I just would have preferred a stronger story to go with the copious T&A from young Alyssa.

In addition to Milano's nudity, male viewers are also treated to Charlotte Lewis as a bisexual photographer who indulges in a spot of lesbian action with Alyssa; we also get a brief but welcome turn from Jennifer Tilly as a bar room slut, the actress offering no nudity but plenty of raunch as always. Martin Kemp and Harold Pruett are on hand for the ladies in the audience, the Spandau Ballet star playing the sappiest bloodsucker imaginable (he makes the sparkly vampires from Twilight seem positively terrifying by comparison), with Pruett his young love rival.

Flat direction, zero gore, a hilarious turn from Kemp (he's comedy gold, that much is true!), risible dialogue, and Alyssa's tits. 4/10.
