The film was a subject of controversy due to inspiring a real life murder shortly after the film's theatrical release.

i think that Queen of the Damned is the best film i have seen in ages. i love the way Stuart Townsend is portraide as Lestat, especially with him wearing tight pvc clothing. Even if you're not the vampire type, you have to go to see it because Stuart Townsend is soooo gorgeous in all that make-up, lush! overall i think it is a brilliant film and all the make-up, special effects and sets are fantastic! It all creates the atmosphere of danger and evil, once again, fantastic!
