After watching Let the Right One In and The Only Lovers Left Alive as far as vampire films go, meh. Loved the costumes of two male characters. I thought the acting was strained, except for Dunst who was scary, and I felt really bad for her. It was a neat story.

British director Neil Jordan tried to do a different vampire movie, but the result was not particularly spectacular. It has a gay theme, and a young child actor playing the role of a young vampire. However, collectively as a film it is just OK.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Not as dated as I was expecting, yet unlike today's films and movies. It was kind of dreamy and historical, more documentary than horror (documentaries never have a plot either). Good-looking vampires, and the little girl actress was terrific (not so much in later movies!).

I saw this in the theater when it first came out, eighteen years ago. It was big, then. The first person viewpoint on life as a vampire hadn't been done before, as far as I know, so it was fairly unique. Cruise commands attention as Lestat; Pitt draws on sympathy for his affliction; and twelve year old Dunst admirably holds her own pretty well against the big boys, for a little runt. Credit is definitely due to Anne Rice for her creation of these bloodsuckers, naturally, but director Neil Jordan should not be without mention, either. I must admit the pace seemed to drag a bit for my taste, though.

Neil Jordan's adaptation of the Anne Rice novel works fairly well. It follows a melancholy vampire (Pitt) telling his story to a reporter in the present day, recounting the tale of the vampire who made him, the girl he had a hand in turning to a vampire, and the others he has met in his travels. Pitt is sympathetic in the lead, with Kirsten Dunst holding her own as the vampire in an eternal girl's body. Antonio Banderas and Stephen Rea do very different turns as vampires. Despite getting the top billing, Tom Cruise is a supporting player as Lestat, and unfortunately is the only weak part of the cast, as usual playing himself. The man is incapable of disappearing into a character.

Out of the two film adaptations of this series by Anne Rice, this is, by far, the better one of the two. It stuck to the story and produced a great visual version of the amazing work by Anne Rice. I do reccommend you read the book before seeing the movie, however.

My favorite movie and one of my favorite books. I have this entire film memorized word for word.
A very fantastic film which chronicles the life of one of the main characters of Anne Rice's stories. It begins with the beginning of his life as a human to a vampire. How he deals with trying to keep his humanity, while embracing the life of a vampire.

Unexpected, which made it interesting to watch. Some parts made absolutely no sense, though. My favourite character would have to be Lestat; Tom Cruise played it well.

Claudia: "...I came to make peace with you, even though you are the father of lies. I want things to be as they were." Lestat: "Stop pestering me, then." Claudia: "Oh, Lestat. I must do more than that. I've brought a present for you." Lestat: "Oh... then I hope it's a... beautiful woman... with endowments... you'll never possess!"

Claudia: "Where's ma-ma?" Lestat: "Ma-ma... Ma-ma's... gone to Heaven, cherie, like that sweet lady, right there. They all go to Heaven!" Louis: "All but us."

Lestat: "Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are, none so like him as ourselves."
