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.

WOW!!! I waited 2 years for something and I finaly got it!!
8 April 2002 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so it wasn't what I expected, but I still thought it rocked. I've read the book several times and the movie is no contest, but I think the Movie would have sucked if it had been a direct interpritation from the book. 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.
