 Amy Reviews THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Queen of the Damned’s plot, title notwithstanding, actually concentrates on Lestat (Stuart Townsend), a centuries-old vampire of musical inclinations who yearns for fame and public adulation and sees his path to fulfillment as attainable by revealing his true nature and using this sensational information to promote himself in the world of heavy-metal rock ‘n roll.
Due to the fortunate combination of talent and the phenomenal appeal of what most critics and media pundits believe to be a clever gimmick, Lestat (urging others of his kind to “come out wherever they are”), achieves superstardom and public notoriety that arouses the ire of the rest of his ilk.
Back in the present day, awakened from a kind of hibernation by the power of Lestat’s music, Queen Akasha senses that she can use this energy to achieve her long-held plans of world domination.
