Having never read Ann Rice's novel I cannot comment on the accuracy of the film. What I will say is that, on its own strengths, this film is essential viewing. Those seeking thrills and frights should turn away now, those interested in depth and character development should buy this instantly. Tom Cruise turns in a great performance as the lonely, malicious vampire Lestat, with Brad Pitt as his brooding, conscience-stricken protege. Despite the fact that the leads are all vampires and drink blood, at times quite graphically, you cannot help but feel sympathy for them as prisoners of eternal darkness. This is partly because of the phenomenal acting on offer and partly because of the screenplay. Some very intense issues are dealt with in the course of the film, Louis struggles with his morality over killing people for a large chunk of the film until eventually he resigns himself to his fate, biting a young girl (Kirsten Dunst). The scope of the film expands from just Lestat and Louis in America to a whole secret society in Paris, along the way revealing some of the vampire laws and customs. The plot also spans a huge time period, ending in the modern day with Louis telling his tale to a journalist (Christian Slater). After watching this film I remember thinking to myself "yeah... if vampires existed I could see them being exactly like that," Rice's vampires are still human, they just become resigned to the fact that they have to drink blood to survive.
My advice is if you like the sound of my review go out and buy the film. If you are not sure definitely rent it, you never know, it might surprise you.

Good solid film - but disappointing blu ray transfer. That said, this is a dark film - as in it's mostly set in a dark environment - and it was never what you'd call a pretty film to look at to start with. It's a little frustrating that people compare it to, say The Dark Knight, in terms of transfer quality. This is a much older film. That a film is 'grainy' is often the intended look of the film by the director and not necessarily a slight on the transfer itself. That said, even by the blu ray standard set for some older films where there is an obvious and sometimes considerable improvement; this is by contrast little better than it's DVD counterpart. Those expecting a pristine, re mastered version of this film will be very disappointed. My advice is buy only if you don't already own this on DVD. Simply put, not worth the upgrade as good as the film may otherwise be. The Star Rating reflects the blu ray quality rather than the film, which is easily worthy of 4 stars.

When you normally read that a film is being made of a book you like, your thinking of all the things they won't be able to show or what will be cut out or changed. Although slightly varying from the original book by Anne Rice, this first film adaptation of the first of Rice's Vampire Chronicles, Interview is quite good! Tom Cruise isn't who most would say best characterises the character of Lestat but as you watch he really gets across what Lestat was like. Interview centres around Louis, played by Brad Pitt, a vampire made by Lestat, "whining" Louis tells us of his life shortly before he was given the blood. Louis and Lestat, joined later by a young Kirsten Dunst as Claudia (based on Anne Rices own deceased child) travel and hunt together in America ... Some funny moments in the film like the draining of the rat's blood into a goblet scene (Cruise and Pitt trying in vain not to smirk!).
I won't tell you all the story - most already know from the book but with appearances of Stephen Rea, Antonio Banderas (great in his role - wouldn't mind him biting my neck!) and some fantastic music you will be drawn to it if you love the genre. Not a terror inducing film but a dark gothic feeling movie all the same. It's a pity the original cast did not continue with the chronicles - Queen of the Damned should never have been made - was a poor attempt at Rice's work. Love watching this film every now and then.

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.
