SYNOPSIS: Margot Etting (Jillanne Smith) is leading a
group of vampire hunters to killer a pack of lethal blood-
suckers. She has only one night to do this. One of the
vampires is a double agent, taking most of his orders from
the head vampire, Garring (Richard Cutler).
Margot's attack begins with success, but soon backfires.

Andreiev as Silver Night.
Night was distributed by Joseph Green, who directed the

He follows her one night only to learn that she is a 200 year old
vampire that dines on bikers.
PRODUCTION FACTS The screenplay was based on a
Hindu vampire legend about a prince who marries a shy
peasant girl who never eats. He kills her when he discovers
she's a vampire. I figured my film concerned an intelligent
modern couple, who would try to cope with vampirism in a

The distributor suggested replacing the film's working title,
Angela with the more marketable Vampire's Embrace. As a
sign as to what was required in 80's horror films, the distributor
demanded several scenes be re-shot with nudity.
