Goofs

Marius cuts his arm so that Lestat will drink his blood. Clearly, there is blood dripping from Marius' arm as Lestat drinks. When Marius pulls his arm away Lestat does not have blood on his face but he should have. Moments later Lestat has a small trace of blood under his chin. See more »

Quotes

Lestat: [voiceover] There comes a time for every vampire when the idea of eternity becomes momentarily unbearable. Living in the shadows, feeding in the darkness with only your own company to keep, rots into a solitary, hollow existence. Immortality seems like a good idea, until you realize you're going to spend it alone. So I went to sleep, hoping that the sounds of the passing eras would fade out, and a sort of death might happen.

Fantastic!
17 April 2002 | by (laguna,Philippines) – See all my reviews

When I heard about the movie,I thought-Great,another movie about blood and gore! But when I watched it I was pleasantly surprised.The film was wonderful.Not just goths or vampire and horror/thriller fans will be able to appreciate the movie.It has something for all of us.Its not just blood and gore, although it has some of that.It has a story for one.Also,it speaks of loneliness, what some of us will do to overcome it and what it means to be truly alone...and I think all of us can understand that sentiment.
