Trivia

For the scenes of Lestat's concert in Death Valley, over 3000 goths were recruited from Melbourne nightclubs and on the internet, then driven on a fleet of buses to a quarry in Werribee to act as extras. See more »

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

[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.

My condolences to Anne Rice
1 August 2002 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

First of all, I would like to give major credits for the music contributed to this movie. Excellent! This is why I gave it 2.

If you've read the book by Anne Rice, and preferably the trilogy(Interview with a Vampire, Vampire Lestat and Queen of the damned), you will probably get sick by watching this movie. It misses all the major points of the book, and is even missing major characters from the original story. I won't say much more than the fact that it sucked.

Don't watch this movie! Read the book instead!
