#62 Embrace the Darkness II!

Oct 3, 2019134 minutes


Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 62 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

Vampire-mania continues at Get Soft, which actually seems appropriate now that we’re into October. Last episode, we looked at Kelley Cauthen’s 1999 erotic horror Embrace the Darkness. This episode, it’s Robert Kubilos’ 2002 sequel, Embrace the Darkness II! You can probably guess what we’re doing on episode 63. None of the original cast return for this sequel - in fact, the story only sort of lines up with what happened in the first one. But, it’s written by the incomparable duo of Ed Gorsuch and April White, and it swaps gothic warehouse loft chic for sci-fi sex rooms, goth clubs and Matrix-inspired fashion. Not to spoil our feelings on the matter, but these things are very hard to resist for much of the cast, with the exception of our guest Jimmy Ether, who is frankly as hard to please as he is easy to love.

Softcore Spotlight-wise, we look at Catalina Larrañaga, who plays the vampire Lizzie. She had a short but impactful career in softcore, starring in stuff like Corporate Fantasy - which she also co-wrote! - and Loveblind. But she stopped acting in 2006, and became a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and a Master Herbalist. None of those are real things, but it hasn’t stopped her from having a very successful career as Kitty Martone, the Healthy Gut Girl, battling leaky gut syndrome (also not a real thing) and vaccine-induced autism (definitely not a real thing). So, uh, our general veneer of congenial and encouraging politeness slips briefly on this one, shall we say.
