From Amazon.co.uk

Queen of the Damned combines the plot elements from the two disappointing novels Anne Rice cranked out as the sequels to Interview with the Vampire and contrives to be better than the book it is named after, but not by much. The vampire Lestat (a pale, pretty Stuart Townsend) awakens after a century-long nap and discovers flamboyant metal music, then irritates the vampire community by "coming out" and courting celebrities. His sub-Marilyn Manson songs interest paranormal-watching human librarian Jesse (Marguerite Moreau), who looks him up in a Mile End Goth club that caters for an undead clientele, but his tunes also awaken Akasha (Aaliyah), eponymous mother of all vampires, who makes him her number one disciple and sets about devastating the world, opposed by a cadre of conservative vampires who include Lestat's sire Marius (Vincent Perez) and Jesse's Aunt Maharet (Lena Olin).

The plot is of the "one-damn-thing-after-another" variety, zipping about the world from New Orleans to Glastonbury to a huge concert in Death Valley as broody characters exchange solemn but comical dialogue and indulge in fight scenes too swift for the camera to catch. Like Blade 2, it offers some spectacular vampire combustions, but its romance is strictly 15-certificate blood-nuzzling and it's hard to take Lestat himself seriously when Townsend plays him as such a feckless twit. --Kim Newman

This is a bit of a complicated one. If your a die hard Anne Rice fan and Interview with the vampire offended you DO NOT watch this film because you may choke on your own fury. Really this film should be watched as a stand alone vamp flick and NOT the sequel to Interview. Personally I really love Interview and if I knew that this film was the intended sequel and not just a 'based on' rip off I probably would have hated it. Saying that I watched it as a stand alone and thought it was pretty entertaining. Stuart Townsend plays the lucious Lestat who goes to sleep for a few hundred years but is then awakened by a new wave of metal music and a change in humans attitudes. Then decides to join a band and releases vampire secrets in his lyrics to p1ss all the other vamps off. In doing so he awakens Egyptian Queen Akasha(Aaliyah), the mother of all vampires who wants to make Lestat her new King and rule mankind. Aaliyah surprisingly does a pretty good job and Townsend does his best in this one even though hes obviously working with a script that is a bit daft 'Her blood is like liquid fire, MORE!' and he does comes off as a homosexual Bela Lugosi impersonator but if you watch this film with a bit of humour it can be pretty good. The soundtrack is really impressive and the featurettes on this dvd show the special effects, one about the music with Chester Bennington(Linkin park) and a tribute to Aaliyah which is quite touching. I would say give it a chance. It's not the best but it's a job well done for a genre of films that can go so wrong so easily and go and check out the soundtrack and the score which I can definetly say are totally awesome.

Queen of the Damned is the sequel to Interview with the Vampire, however it is very different in both pace and style. You might say that it is akin to an MTV movie video of a Vampire film, and indeed music does play a very important part in this film, however it is much more than that.
The story-line is fairly simple. Lonely Vampire (Stuart Townsend) is woken up by Rock Music. Lonely Vampire decides to become a rock musician and to challenge all the world's vampire's to reveal themselves. Meanwhile, Lonely Vampire's music inadvertently wakes Akasha, Queen of the Damned (Aaliyah)who sees human's as food. Lonely Vampire must decide whether he will rule the world with Akasha, throw himself to the mercy of the other vampires or spend eternity roaming the earth with the investigative librarian who's taken a shine to him.
Stuart Townsend and Aaliyah look amazing with both having all the sexy vampiric qualities you could want from an over-zealous bloodsucker. The sound track is fantastic... very Rock/Metal/New Punk-ish and dripping with sliding chords and waning metal guitar semi-tones (and definitely worth buying).
All in all, whilst this Vampire film isn't a classic, it does have all the things you'd want. Over-dressed long-haired, beautifully preserved young vampires. Plenty of blood sucking and spontaneous combustion. Tortured, mournful vampires who've grown very tired of their lonely existence and all this wrapped up in a stylish, musical montage.
Definitely worth having in your collection... just don't expect anything too intellectually challenging.

If you've read or plan on reading The Vampire Chronicles, on which this is based, do not bother with this film. It will leave you highly irritated and you will rant incessantly about it.

If however, you're not arsed about reading the books, give it a go and you'll probably enjoy it.

I have to say this is one of my favourite films,Aaliya was perfect as the title character & Stuart Townsend carried of everyones favourite brat prince flawlessly & not forgetting the really good supporting cast too!
I do have a few bad points to say although it is a good film and the character are true to the books (well mostly), The anchients play a very important rule in the book but are hardly if at all featured. Some of tose who appeared but didn't make it to the film were,are Mekare(Mharet's twin sistetr,they make a up a large amout of the 3rd book),Louis(interview's main character),Gabrielle(Lestat's mother and 1st fledgling),Daniel Malloy(the boy from interview),Magnus(Lestat's actual maker),Eric(Mharets companion),Baby Jenks,Azim &theres afew more but I dont want to bore you.
Although it wasn't really that true to the books it did work in its own right as a really enjoyable vampire flick and adds a more likable Anne Rice character to the big screen aposed to the evil version of Lestat in Interview with the Vampire. Also he makes a much more enjoyable hero to watch,then the ever depressed Louis.
Oh and how could the film also boasts an outstanding soundtrack featuring the likes of Chester Bennington(of Linkin Park), Marlin Manson,Wayne Static (of Static X),Jay Gorden(of Orgy) to name a few.
This film really is worth seeing. Enjoy!

A cult classic for a reason! The cast are amazing and it's a well written plot, leaving the viewer gripped. The characters are amazing.

Lestat has awoken & decides to become the closet thing to God on earth - a rock star! His music reawakens the queen of all vampires, who only wants destruction on earth. This is a must for all those who love the vampire genre
