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. But as I lay there, the world didn't sound like the place ...

After a one-hundred year hibernation, the lonely Lestat (Stuart Townsend) awakes and decides to be a rock and roll star, exposing that he is a vampire. Jesse (Marguerite Moreau), who works at an organization that studies paranormal phenomena, investigates the vampires in London and finds their coven. The president of the organization David Talbot (Paul McGann) tells that they should only observe and lends to her Lestat's journal. Jesse learns how Lestat turned into a vampire by his maker Marius (Vincent Perez) and his first contact with the powerful Queen Akasha (Aaliyah), who is the first vampire. Jesse becomes obsessed for Lestat ad travels to Los Angeles, where he will give a concert with his band. Meanwhile vampires from every part of the world travel to the concert to kill Lestat. What will happen in Los Angeles?
"Queen of the Damned" proceeds with the return of Lestat but is not a sequel of "Interview with the Vampire". Lestat is different and less evil in this film and Stuart Townsend is witty and funny. The inexpressive Marguerite Moreau begins and ends with the same pointless face. But the music score is great and the special effects are top- notch for a 2002 film. The death of Aaliyah in 2001 in plane crash is the sad part of this film. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Rainha dos Condenados" ("The Queen of the Damned")
