Interview with the Vampire

Interview with the Vampire

Director Neil Jordan assembled a cast of serious A-list talent for the long-awaited adaptation of author Anne Rice‘s lush, goth pop-culture juggernaut INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, released in 1994. Set against the backdrop of modern, gloomy San Francisco, 18th-century-born Spanish Lord Louis de Pointe du Lac (Brad Pitt), a bicentennial vampire, relays his remarkable life story of love, betrayal, loneliness and dark hunger to an eager (if not skeptical) biographer (Christian Slater). Suicidal after the death of his family, he meets Lestat de Lioncourt (Tom Cruise), a vampire who persuades him to choose immortality over death and become his companion. Eventually, gentle Louis resolves to leave his violent maker, but Lestat guilts him into staying by turning a young girl (Kirsten Dunst) – whose addition to the “family” breeds even more conflict. With Antonio Banderas, Stephen Rea.

“Sumptuous, mesmerizing and imaginatively ghastly.” (The New York Times)

Christian Slater stars as Clarence, a comic-book… Continue Reading
