Embrace of the Vampire

 (1995)

Embrace of the Vampire Blu-ray features poor video and decent audio in this poor Blu-ray release

In the tradition of Poison Ivy, Alyssa Milano, (Charmed, Poison Ivy 2: Lily) plays Charlotte, a sensuous but innocent college freshman who is being seduced by an obsessive lover. A lover, (Martin Kemp, The Krays) who comes to her only in dreams - a dark, handsome vampire who touches her in forbidden places and will stop at nothing to arouse her passion. As she is drawn deeper and deeper into the vampire's erotic world of carnal pleasure, Charlotte is forced to make a choice between her college boyfriend and her nighttime lover, between sweet romance and uncontrollable lust, between the forces of light and the power of darkness, between true love...and eternal possession.

For more about Embrace of the Vampire and the Embrace of the Vampire Blu-ray release, see Embrace of the Vampire Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Alyssa Milano, Martin Kemp (I), Jordan Ladd, Rachel True, Charlotte Lewis, Jennifer Tilly

Embrace of the Vampire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Embrace of the Vampire features a troubled Blu-ray transfer. The image often looks severely processed, very flat, and lacking firm textures and natural colors. Things begin rather poorly with a wobbly opening title sequence that's accompanied by a hint of artificial sharpening and numerous pops and speckles, all of which remain throughout the picture. Things hardly improve from there. Black levels fluctuate from crushing dark to a dark purple shade. The early flashback scenes push a bronze shade and a natural softness (seemingly by design) but it's so soft that there's hardly any definition beyond basic shapes. Flash forward and find campus buildings that lack the sort of rough, realistic textures they require. Skin details are soft and lacking. The image appears hopelessly flat and the color palette lacks even a hint of vibrancy. The image additionally suffers from some occasionally jagged edges. One of the most offending scenes appears when Charlotte finds Chris in her bed in the first act. The entire sequence has the look of shady standard definition, packed with compression issues to the point that it seems always on the verge of a digital collapse. At its best, the image offers dull colors and basic definition within a fairly soft frame, which, in the film's defense, does seem to be its natural state. Nevertheless, there's enough wrong here that fans will likely be disappointed with this release.


Embrace of the Vampire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Embrace of the Vampire features a serviceable Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Musical delivery fails to offer a tight, realistic, robust presence, though spacing is fine and there's a pronounced surround support element. Cracks of thunder and other heavier ambient effects fill the stage nicely enough and play with sufficient clarity while still lacking that lifelike dynamic found on the best tracks. background ambience, at a bar, for example, often comes across as muddled and absent a more refined precision. Dialogue, for the most part, enjoys solid front-center presence and clarity but also occasionally finds itself a bit more shallow than expected. This is a fairly straightforward sort of track. It handles the basic dynamics well enough but won't ascend to the top of the catalogue lossless heap.
