First of all, I would like to give major credits for the music contributed to this movie. Excellent! This is why I gave it 2.
If you've read the book by Anne Rice, and preferably the trilogy(Interview with a Vampire, Vampire Lestat and Queen of the damned), you will probably get sick by watching this movie.
