Anchor Bay has announced that their remake of Embrace of the Vampire will be released to Blu-ray and DVD this October. They’ll also be releasing the original movie on Blu-ray for the first time:
“Anchor Bay Films is proud to announce the home entertainment debut of the erotic horror film, EMBRACE OF THE VAMPIRE, starring Sharon Hinnendael (Rites of Passage, “Look”), Tiio Horn (Defiance, Hemlock Grove), C.C. Sheffield (“True Blood”), Chelsey Marie Reist (12 Rounds: Reloaded) and Victor Webster (Continuum) 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 (2013) stars Sharon Hinnendael (Rites of Passage, “Look”) 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.
Also separately available on Blu-ray™ for the first time and DVD on the Anchor Bay Entertainment label is the ground-breaking 1995 infamous erotic version starring former “Who’s The Boss?” child star and “Charmed” vixen Alyssa Milano. Milano stars as Charlotte, a shy, sexually inexperienced college freshman stalked by a handsome British vampire (Martin Kemp of The Krays) who believes her to be the reincarnation of his long-dead lover. But with only three days to seduce the teen virgin, he’ll tempt Charlotte with forbidden passions that include sensual dreams, a beautiful lesbian (Charlotte Lewis of The Golden Child), torrid threesomes, scorching orgies and beyond. Jordan Ladd (Club Dread), Rachel True (The Craft) and Jennifer Tilly (Bound) co-star in the sizzling supernatural classic Mr. Skin calls ‘the sexiest horror movie of all time!’”
