31 Days of Horror: Embrace of the Vampire (1995)

31 Days of Horror, Robert Forto

Every year we have a tradition in the Forto house where we celebrate the greatest month of the year, October, with scare your socks off, hide under the covers, turn on all the lights, sleep with one eye open, fright fest, movie marathon every night of the month! We call it 31 Days of Horror.

Day 13 Movie: Embrace of the Vampire (1995)

Need I say anything more than Alyssa Milano. I have been an Alyssa fan since she played Sam in the Tony Danza saga Who’s the Boss. Being only about nine months older than she, she was my first “crush” (blush) on TV. She really blossomed in Poison Ivy 2: Lilly, almost stealing the house that Drew (Barrymore) built. What am I saying? I have had a bigger crush on Drew since I was a kid and I still can’t wait to see her next film (50 First Dates, E.T, Firestarter, Poison Ivy, Never Been Kissed,  Ever After–my wife’s favorite movie, The Wedding Singer, Charlie’s Angels, Going the Distance—later this year and Everybody Loves Whales in 2012).

Betcha you didn’t know Alyssa played on Melrose Place opposite of Heather Locklear did you? Yep, played Jennifer Mancini but left after only seven episodes to star in Charmed.

It’s okay, it’s okay, my wife, Michele, says its okay to have a favorite actress or two. Heck ,they both give the greats like Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Denzel, et al a run for their money on the silver screen don’t they (sarcasm at its finest)?

Plot (taken directly from the Netflix cover): Vampirism and gothic eroticism together on a modern university campus, resulting in this cult favorite… Virginal freshman Charlotte (Milano) is haunted by dreams of a mysterious and handsome lover, who’s actually a vampire. Could Charlotte be the reincarnation of the vampire’s lost love?…

Aren’t all the vampire/Dracula movies same?

Hardly!
