  DVD Review - Interview With The Vampire   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
When, some years ago, I first read Anne Rice’s novel "Interview with the Vampire", I was impressed by the unique, romantic view she used to explore the vampire subject.
Vampires are now perceived in a totally different light than the horrible, blood-sucking monstrosities they were in the decades previous.
"Interview with the Vampire" is the story of the age-old, disillusioned vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise) searching the world for companionship in his time of solitude.

 Interview with the Vampire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Interview with the Vampire is a novel by Anne Rice about vampires written in 1973 and published in 1976 by Alfred A. Knopf.
The novel was set apart from its predecessors of the vampire genre by its confessional tone from the vampire's perspective, touching on existential despair and the sheer boredom of lifeless immortality.
Anne Rice wrote Interview with the Vampire after the death of her daughter, and Louis, as the main character, is portrayed as melancholic and depressive as a projection of Rice's own feelings at the time.

Interview with the vampire by Anne Rice tells the story of the life of a vampire from the point of him becoming a vampire until the present time of the telling of the story itself.
While vampires have been written about before, I don't think anyone ever did it quite as well as Anne rice did in her very first novel "Interview with the Vampire".
Interview is told from the perspective of Louis, a lone vampire who tells the story of his life to Daniel, a reporter (though you don't know the name of the 'boy' until the next book).

 SPLICEDwire | "Interview with the Vampire" review
Lestat is the vampire that "made" Louis one of his kind for the sake of having some company in 1700s New Orleans.
Claudia and Louis leave Lestat for Europe and find other vampires living in Paris who are actors that invite the pair to their play, in which they kill a young woman in front of the audience, making it look like part of their show.
In fact, "Interview with the Vampire" may live forever on video, but it will be a renter, not one for your permanent collection.

ollywood heartthrobs flex their corpuscles for naught in "Interview With the Vampire," the disappointing adaptation of Anne Rice's succulent 1976 novel.
He was grieving over the death of his wife and daughter (his saintly brother in the book) when he attracted the vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise), a world-weary immortal who sees Louis not only as dinner but as a potential companion.
Though they do not practice intercourse as such, they go for all types: A, B, AB or O. Interview With the Vampire, at area theaters, is rated R for violence and nudity.

 Vampire library of Darkness : Interview With the Vampire, Anne Rice
In the now-classic novel Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice refreshed the archetypal vampire myth for a late-20th-century audience.
Interview is one of those books that stays with you long after you've read it.
This is the story of a vampire and the never-ending cycle of becoming and living.

 DVD Verdict Review - Interview With The Vampire
Unlike most vampire films, this one comes from the point of view of the vampire himself, as he struggles with what he has become, the meaning of life, and the dichotomy of feeding from humans yet trying to remain one in spirit.
Louis has long struggled with what it is to be a vampire, and retains a level of humanity that keeps him in a state of emptiness and self-loathing at feeding off humans.
Most surprising were the 3 hour make-up jobs done to give the vampire's preternatural look, and the fact that so many digital effects were used in such a way as to be invisible and unnoticed; providing ambiance and depth to scenes rather than blow us away with special effects.

 Interview With the Vampire . Austin Chronicle . 11-02-98
The paradigm shift that occurred in vampire mythology with Rice's ensuing fame and series of sequels, "The Vampire Chronicles," was as marked as the difference between the classic 1931 fl and white version of Dracula starring Bela Lugosi and Francis Ford Coppola's stylized, psychedelicized Bram Stoker's Dracula in 1992.
Starring Catherine Deneuve as a centuries-old vampire who promises her converts everlasting life/love ("forever"), The Hunger betrays its debt to Rice by using the device unique to the Southern novelist's version of vampire lore: that a victim must first drink from his/her maker before becoming a creature of the night.
The always icy Deneuve as a stone-faced vampire doesn't seem like much of a stretch, but she is one of the better modern blood-suckers.

 AudioRevolution.com DVD Review of Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles
But Rice pulled her readers into a world of vampires; except for the character of the Interviewer (Christian Slater), everyone in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE is a vampire.
And vampires, being predators on human beings, reanimated corpses feeding on the living, are intrinsically evil; the character Louis (Brad Pitt) spends most of the story fighting this idea.
This power to shock does not come from the fact that the vampires win -- it derives instead mostly from the fact that there is no relief at all from the swirling, eternal world of violence, death and blood into which we're plunged for two hours.

 INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE
Lestat was made a vampire when he was 19-years-old.
In the novel, despite his impish sense of humor, Lestat is not a creature to be trifled with.
Instead of dying like he wished, Louis was made into a vampire, forced to feed on the blood of others by the vampire Lestat (Cruise), a creature far older than even he.

 Amazon.com: Interview with the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles, Bk. 1): Books: Anne Rice   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
With Interview With the Vampire, Anne Rice completely rejuvenated the genre which I feel to be horror's most important, primal, and soul-stirring, the legend of the vampire.
She accepts her vampire nature with some ease, being too young to really ever remember her human childhood, but the growth of Claudia the vampire woman inside the body of Claudia the child is a beautifully painful thing to watch.
When she manages to separate Louis and herself from Lestat to go searching for other vampires in Central Europe and eventually Paris, giving dramatic voice to both her love for and hatred of Louis, the door to the dungeons of utter tragedy are thrown asunder.

If one considers the lost boys to be the definitive vampire movie then you havent seen this,now i do love the lost boys but this is a film that is a journey,a film that portrays friendship,loyalty,honour and love perfectly,not to mention blood and gore,simply perfect ingredients in my opinion.
Based on the anne rice novel the film moves through various geneartions and is told in the form of an interview that vampire louie (pitt) affords to slater and flashbacks are a plenty.The film is witty at times and tragic in others,bloody when needed and moving as well as poignant.

  Interview with the Vampire Is the Real Pornography
Although we are told that vampires kill both men and women, the few male victims in the movie are dispatched quickly and unobtrusively, while the camera lingers on the killing of women.
Meanwhile, the vampires taunt their victims that their life has no meaning, that they are going to die anyway, and humiliate and torture them--in one case, before an appreciative on-screen audience.
But the actress whose major credential is that she was stripped, humiliated and then killed onstage in Interview was, by contrast, engaging in a lesser form of acting where any talent is subordinated to her physical attributes and where the performance consists of being an object.

The two vampires wander the cities of the world, with Lestat teaching his reluctant pupil the ways of vampirism.
Rice also dips into one of the best examples of literary vampirism ever: Louis becomes a vampire out of his grief, but once the grief fades, he is left with the soul of a human, and the bloodthirst of a vampire -- things that can't be reconciled.
Because he is a vampire, he is by his very nature a killer, yet the idea of murder is repulsive to him.

 AnneRice.Com: Interview With The Vampire
Louis recounts how he became a vampire at the hands of the radiant and sinister Lestat and how he became indoctrinated, unwillingly, into the vampire way of life.
His story ebbs and flows through the streets of New Orleans, defining crucial moments such as his discovery of the exquisite lost young child Claudia, wanting not to hurt but to comfort her with the last breaths of humanity he has inside.
Yet, he makes Claudia a vampire, trapping her womanly passion, will, and intelligence inside the body of a small child.

 Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
The film may not be 100% plot-hole-less (but neither is the Matrix, and many brilliant films), and the concept of Vampires might seem a little far-fetched (read on), but if you bear with the unavoidable facets of a movie dealing with vampires, this film is quite astounding.
The religious and Christian undertones are unavoidable, if not intended: Vampires are damned (by God?); they pass on their curse like a virus through their bloodstreams, both malignantly and benevolently.
Louis, the main character played by Brad Pitt, was a depressed man, a man with no purpose left to his life; then he is set upon by a creature he didn't even think existed: a vampire, the vampire Lestat.

As you may know, while the film IWTV was in production with David Geffen, the author of the book had no legitimate contact with him or with the studio or with anyone connected with the film.
He is utterly convincing as the interviewer and he made the story all the more powerful by his entirely understandable reactions to the tale.
On LIZ SMITH and her very frank and brave questions as to whether or not IWTV was a gay allegory, and her question as to why people just don't make a gay film, and why do gays have to be disguised as vampires -- Here's my answer.
