The blood that Queen Akasha has in her mouth is really cherry juice. See more »

Goofs

Before Lestat takes his 'first' drink from Marius, while the blood (or whatever makeup or drink they used) is dripping on his chin, Lestat opens his mouth. When he does this you can clearly see that his mouth is already full of blood (or juice). 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 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!
