I haven’t seen the original, but the remake of Embrace Of The Vampire seems to definitely be coming entirely from the cash money perspective. Though some are mourning the loss of original star Alyssa Milano, I say we just acknowledge the existence of this and move on with our day. Maybe her replacement Sharon Hinnendael is up to the task of filling those shoes!
Per Variety, “Alan Mruvka’s Filmology Labs Entertainment is teaming with Grobman-Campbell Films to produce a remake of ‘Embrace of the Vampire,’ the 1994 cult pic starring Alyssa Milano that was produced by Mruvka. Erotic thriller is being financed by Lisa Hansen and Paul Herzberg of Cinetel Films along with Anchor Bay Entertainment, which is a division of Starz Media. Like a supernatural “Fifty Shades of Grey,” story follows a virginal college student who is introduced to a dark world of carnal desires after being seduced by a handsome vampire.”
It’s pretty telling that the “50 Shades Of Grey” phenomenon has been mentioned in conjunction with this “erotic thriller.” “There’s been a lot of interest lately to do a remake,” said Mruvka. I imagine so! Embrace Of The Vampire has already started production in Vancouver.
