It never gets too corny, unlike most modern vampire stories, and it's both darkly dramatic and comical.

Adapted from Anne Rice's long running novel series, director Neil Jordan lets the blood and gore run rampant as much as the lusty sensuality and lush scenery. Tom Cruise is off as ageless vampire Lestat but he's not slouching. Brad Pitt fares a tad better as the newly minted vampire Louis who is torn over the tremendous moral implications with killing people to feed on their blood. The standout is a young Kirsten Dunst as the wily and bratty vampire child Claudia. Its ott style is not always as effective as it aims for this timeless epic tone. But it's not holding anything back for an R rated Gothic horror film and that's always worth seeing.

A good vampire film featuring "The" A-list talent of the time, Slater, Pitt, Cruise...Quite an interesting take on the vampire myth. I'm not sure I like the liberties taken by Anne Rice, slightly changing the rules for killing a vampire, basically, you can't, unless you burn them or expose them to sunlight. The sets are fantastic, (Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo were nominated for Best Art Direction and Set Decoration at the Academy Awards), as is the cinematography. Really a interesting film that keeps you entertained throughout.

A vampire from born in New Orleans in the 18th century tells the tale of his life to an incredulous reporter. Anne Rice's own adaptation of her novel is quite literary which tempers the melodrama to give it quite a theatrical feel, added to by a good supporting cast; Tom Cruise actually gives one of his more characterful performances and is clearly enjoying himself as the rakish Lestat. It's obviously mainly about the eye candy and gothic romanticism for the benefit of the ladies, but there is also some great period detail and interesting themes running through it; particularly the eternal child and links between voyeurism and violence. A VERY young Kirsten Dunst gives a mature performance as Louie's unwilling child/love although I felt Banderas' character was underused. It's brooding, …

Way back when there were the Twilight franchise the Hollywood A list hunks ruled the vampire scene. You have Christian Slater (the reporter Daniel Molloy), Brad Pitt (the gorgeous Louis de Pointe du Lac), Tom Cruise (the wise vampire) and Kirsten Dunst (Claudia the vampire daughter) as the talented main cast delivers. Antonio Banderas as Armand also shines. Cinematography was grandiose to accentuate the beautiful 18th century era, an elegant score with a wonderful screenplay based on the popular novel created by Anne Rice. The set pieces were majestic and the pace of the picture was not disappointing. Some memorable lines: Armand - "The world changes, we do not; therein lies the irony that finally kills us." Lestat - "Don't be afraid. I'm going to give you the choice I never …

Interview with the vampire, is an exquisite, very stylish film, that at times is boring, and repellent. But the acting is so good, that you have to wonder why these people did not get Oscars for their work. The Story: A vampire who has lived for 200 years, tells Christian Slater his life story, first of how he became what he is, what he's done of what he is, and what he plans to do next. Tom Cruise plays the lead vampire, who turned Brad Pitt into a vampire. Brad Pitt plays the vampire who is telling the life story to Christian Slater. Kirsten Dunst (Jumangi, Small Soldiers) plays the young girl, who the both male vampires turns into a vampire. Therefore she is cursed and will stay a young girl the rest of her life, till someone kills her. The film itself is a fine one, and if you watch …
