Interview With The Vampire lusciously sinks its broody fangs into your mind.

Interview With The Vampire lusciously sinks its broody fangs into your mind. Having not read Rice's novel (and never will), I was expecting a straightforward vampire flick involving teeth biting, vaporisation by sunlight and plentiful scenes of smouldering. Whilst these are all included, the luxurious gothic horror period aesthetic appeal elevated the atmospheric narrative substantially, setting a rather high bar. Chronicling the immortal life of Louis who was turned into a vampire by the devilishly suave Lestat, where his new abilities are slowly viewed as a curse. The unconventional narrative structure is what truly differentiates this film, as the story is told through an interview-like narration. This naturally enables foreshadowing and finer details to be illustrated in a more contemporary method, and it works beautifully. Vampirism is positively viewed by Lestat who relishes in immortality and has come to terms with his curse. Conversely, Louis clings onto his humanity and despises the process of human feeding. The opposition and differing personalities allows drama, humour and tension to arise throughout the story, creating a well-rounded film. However underneath the regal costumes and grandiose musical score, are thematically powered elements that give life to this undead story. From an ambiguous relationship between Lestat and Louis to questioning existentialism and mortality. These strands thicken the blood-soaked narrative adequately. Casting was a surprise. Pitt carried the film with his broodiness and a young Dunst was exceptional. Yet it was Cruise that astonished me. I just didn't expect him in this role, and whilst it did take me a while to warm to him, I thought he was excellent. Arguably the first half is greater than the second half, with Rea and Banderas' characters feeling underdeveloped, and the concluding three minutes were far too convenient. But director Jordan has crafted a bloody divine adaptation filled with luscious authenticity and superb performances that I just want to sink my teeth into. Turn me now, Lestat!

Essential horror classic.
Verified purchase
Despite not being entirely faithful to the source material, this 1994 adaptation of Anne Rice's popular novel remains one of the greatest vampire movies of all time.

'Interview With The Vampire' is a highly entertaining gothic period drama, laced with blood, gore and black humour. Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are superb in the lead roles as the tortured Louis and the gleefully evil Lestat respectively, and are ably supported by Antonio Banderas as Armand and a young Kirsten Dunst, who is brilliant as the lovable, but deadly Claudia. Featuring excellent locations, sets, make-up and costumes, 'Interview...' is visually stunning and highly atmospheric, with the muted tones/colours giving it a genuinely archaic feel. The picture and sound quality of the Blu-ray disc are noticeably better than the DVD issue, with the striking imagery of the film really coming to the fore.

'Interview With the Vampire' is an absolute must-have for all horror movie fans. This Blu-ray issue is the best version currently available and is highly recommended.

Fantastic Film
Verified purchase
One of my favourite ever films, by far. I've seen it many times and i could easily go back and watch it again. The cast is excellent: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, Antonio Banderas, Kirsten Dunst, Stephen Rea, all in one film. They do a fantastic job of portraying the different emotions of the characters as Brad Pitt's 'Louis' takes us on a rollercoaster journey through his past, the sadness, the suffering, but there's also a few laughs in there too, especially from Tom Cruise's evil 'Lestat'. Also a memorable performance from a young Kirsten Dunst, who as a child actor herself, had to portray a suffering adult vampire trapped in a young child's body, incapable of ever growing old. Don't expect a run of the mill cheesy vampire flick from this film, because you aren't going to get it! Oh and the soundtrack - eerily beautiful, gives me goosebumps every time.

Evocative and sumptuous blood fest
Verified purchase
I dislike Tom Cruise immensely. Whilst girls at school swooned over him in Cocktail and Top Gun, i avidly avoided his films. Then came Interview with a Vampire and i was torn between my desire to see the film and to avoid it because of Cruise. I opted to swallow my dislike of Cruise to see the film. Cruise is a revelation, i hate to admit it but his portrayal of Lestat is impeccable, the embodiment of a Vampire relishing his bloodlust. Brad Pitt is equally as good as the tortured Louis and Kirsten Dunst, wow she can portray Evil that's for sure.
Fantastic film with stunning performances and cinematography.

Humans Pretending to be Vampires Pretending to be Humans ...
Verified purchase
I'm only giving it four stars for the nostalgia effect the geographical location has on me, otherwise it would struggle to make three. I lived in San Francisco all through the 1980s, so I was actually there, somewhere in that city when the camera panned over it at the end. Bittersweet memories, as it used to be dark and exciting all those years ago, but it hasn't aged well.
And neither has this film, I'm afraid. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt - I mean, really? They do a decent job, I suppose, but it's a bit like saying that a dog does a decent job of looking like a cat, when really it looks more like a fox. Ultimately a depressing ride down memory lane.

“I’m flesh and blood, but not human....” [Louis]
Verified purchase
This 1994 drama with a horror base starts with reporter Daniel Molloy [Christian Slater] interviewing Louis de Pointe du Lac [Brad Pitt], who claims to be a vampire. Louis quickly convinces Daniel his claim is true and begins to tell his tale of how he was ‘turned’ by the callous Lestat [Tom Cruise] but what do you do when you run out of chickens?
Long in the tooth [couldn’t resist that!] this may be it still has some decent special effects, while the photography and sets are quite superb, but the short introduction to the film is annoying and while not a plot spoiler as such, does ruin the suspense of some scenes. The dark and dry humour is always present and Kirsten Dunst is brilliant as the young, demanding, spoilt, malicious and manipulative murderous Claudia.
The single disc features play, scene selection, languages [german or English with subtitles in most European + some other languages] and special features [cast & crew, making of, and trailer].
Slow paced it may be, but there are enough jumps and scares to keep you awake until you get drawn into the riveting story. Animal lovers may want to look away at certain points, Ah rats, you either love ‘em or hate them. I doubt this would be rated 18 now but it does have violence, but nothing that hasn’t been done in a 15 but there is some nudity.

Interview
Verified purchase
awesome film adaptation of the same titled book by anne rice. i felt it kept pretty close to book and i love vampire/mythical type films so i'm a little biased but it is a great film. tom cruise plays the role of lestat de Lioncourt fantastically (tho at first after seeing a few of his other films i wouldnt have thought he'd be best person for it), being all flamboyant and living upto the vampiric nature and then becoming moody and rejected.

you have brad pitt playing the role of louis de Pointe du Lac, who lestat turns. again doing the role justice, louis has just lost his wife and child when lestat approaches him and offers him immortality. louis takes it and finds his new life enjoyable up until the point where drinking human blood is involved. he detests that part of his nature and soon runs away feeding of rats and then he finds a young kirsten as Claudia whom he tries to turn and then asks lestat to finish the conversion. they become on big happy family for the time. other main cast members include:

* Antonio Banderas playing the role of Armand brilliantly
* Christian Slater as Daniel Malloy, the interviewer of louis who claims to bea vampire in the "modern day san francisco"
* Stephen Rea as Santiago, one of men under Armand doing the theater etc

Supremely silly and slick at the same time. Embarrassing, crass and at moments disgusting. My copy goes straight to the charity shop.
