Interview with the Vampire (1994)
"So you want me to tell you the story of my life."
My favourite vampire movie in the world. Blade etc have shit on this.
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are perfect for the roles and Kirsten Dunst has Claudia down to a t. I feel like this film was a brilliant adaptation of the book and it did it a lot of justice. The soundtrack is so seductive and inviting which is exactly what a vampire is supposed to be like to a mortal soul.
It’s dark and every character has enough screentime for the viewer to really get a grasp of them, even the ones which don’t hog the screen for more than a few scenes throughout the film. I find this to be an achievement cause some films can’t make their main characters have any depth after around 2 fucking hours. There seemed to have been a lot of women around those times also who liked to get their legs open pretty quickly, probably why I felt no sympathy for them when they started being drained by either of the two gorgeous lead characters.
Vampires are my favourite when it comes to horror, maybe it’s the fangs which I looooove in this, not too over the top. I love how the vampires in this also dismiss the superstitions of crucifixes and the usual anti vampire shite because it makes Louis and Lestat feel more like part of the human world, just like us. Especially when he’s sat in a room in the middle of the city doing an interview about his life as a vampire with no fucks given.
If you love vampires and haven’t seen this movie then you are a twat.
