Every friend of stylish Gothic vampire stories should love this!
5 September 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

Although Neil Jordan's "Interview with the vampire: The Vampire chronicles" definitely has its own devoted fans (7.0 out of 10 can't be a bad average...) it's still unfortunately maybe a slightly underrated movie - at least among professional critics. I haven't read Anne Rice's famous novel but it doesn't seem like the most logical vampire book to start with since I still haven't read Bram Stoker's "Dracula" either.

I've seen this movie couple of times and I have to admit that I enjoyed it very, very much. And why not? Tom Cruise was quite excellent as his rather unusual role of Lestat de Lioncourt and Brad Pitt was just brilliant like he normally is as Louis de Pointe du Lac. Antonio Banderas and Christian Slater were good too, can't deny it either. The story was dark, peculiar and it had some really twisted humor.

This hasn't got much to do with the actual film but being a big Guns n' roses fan "Interview with the vampire: The Vampire chronicles" has a special place in my heart. The Rolling stones cover we hear during the end credits ("Sympathy for the devil") was the last single Gn'R released with its good old line-up. This movie is one of the best vampire flicks. Not the best, though. Nothing can beat Roman Polanski's "Fearless vampire killers". But like I said, one of the finest of this genre.
