Warner Bros. was already into its last year of owning motion picture rights to the first three Vampire Chronicles books which would then have transferred back to author 'Anne Rice', who could then sell the rights to another company of her choosing.

I think those who like hard rock, a little bit of romance and a "small" touch of the super natural will like this movie. I suggest seeing this movie and judging it for yourself though.
