Virginal 17-year-old Charlotte (Alyssa Milano) finds it a bit hard to adjust to college life, especially since she has been brought up by nuns (with all the implications) while everyone else seems to be rather promiscuous. Especially her boyfriend Chris (Harrison Pruett) grows quite impatient about her intentions to remain a virgin, at least until she turns 18 ... which is a mere 3 days away.

But if Charlotte is so virginal, then why has she erotic dreams about a vampire (Martin Kemp) all the time ?

The dreams irritate Charlotte, to say the least, & so does a nude photoshoot with Sarah (Charlotte Lewis) that almost turns nto steamy lesbian sex ...

The vampire is of course real, & has waited 200 years for his Princess to be reborn - in Charlotte - & now has (for whatever reason) 3 days to make her love him, & so the vampire does whatever is in his power - giving her erotic dreams about him, giving her dreams of Chris cheating on her, planting doubts in Chris ... & of course killing a few of her friends.

On the eve of her 18th birthday the vampire seems to have almost succeeded, she refuses to meet up with Chris, almost breaks up with him, & has turned from the college virgin into a very sexy vamp ...

Then though, when the vampire tries to seduce her, Chris, still worried about her, barges in, & while the vampire has no trouble restraining Chris, he can't suppres her love to him, & ultimately has to give her up & disappears ... & it seems as if Charlotte & Chris would celebrate her 18th birthday right where they are doing you-know-what ...


For years, Alyssa Milano has built up her image as clean all-American girl in the sitcom Who's the Boss, with virtually all of America watching her grow up to a lovely young woman. Now what better way to break with such an image than to star in an erotic horror film & showing quite a bit of skin ?

The role of the virgin in turmoil who can just as easily turn into a vamp was of course tailormade for her (even if she was in real life a tad older - 21 - than her movie-role - & not quite as innocent either I presume) & she looks great in it.

The movie itself though is rather weak, a vampire story that wasn't really thought through & thus seems to go nowhere, with its horror theme rather underplayed, virtually no directorial effort put into atmosphere, & the finale is underwhelming, to put it nicely.

There are actually only 2 reasons to see the movie, I call htem Thelma & Louise, but I'm sure Alyssa calls her boobs by diffferent names.
