Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Read the book instead.
10 August 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was a good book turned into a brain dead vampire movie aimed at teenagers. First of all it's based on half the story (the book before it in the series "The Vampire Lestat" ended with the beginning of "Queen of the Damned") They left out main characters, omitted the histories, and even changed how Lestat became a vampire, what was left out of "Interview With The Vampire" felt like they just needed to fit into some time constraints, what they did with "Queen of the Damned" was a hack and slash job. Even taking it separately from the book, it was at best mediocre. The characters were two dimensional, and bland, and the plot was boring and unconnected. This movie's only redeeming qualities were the mood the lighting and the sets added, and the costumes, which both were wonderful, but besides that, read the book instead.
