Over stylized, sexualized, and everything else-ized. Hello again, boredom.

Great music. I like how they used Jonathon Davis for the music "in" the film.

While I don't really get into the Ann Rice novels I did enjoy this movie. I just thought it was more creative then the usual run of the mill vampire movie that we see turn up every couple years. I thought the effects were very well done, and the music was great. I still listen to David Drainman's song forsaken. The story was also well thought out, and I like how it doesn't just jump into present day, or stay in the past too long. Overall I would recommend this to people that are looking for a different type of vampire movie.

"Queen Of The Damned" by Yojimbo

Another Anne Rice novel makes it to the big screen, complete with the usual frock-coated homo-eroticism and pseudo-gothic romanticism. It's the kind of film that probably really appeals to pubescent goth girls who get a kick out of watching shirtless, pouty, long-haired men spout poetry and wrestle with each other to a sub-standard Nine Inch Nails style soundtrack. None of these ingredients appeal to me however, and so I can view it with rather more objectivity. And the fact is, it's not very good. The plot is listless, there's little drama and as appealing as Aaliyah looks in her vampire queen garb, she has little to do save, well, look appealing. But by far the biggest flaw is in the direction, which is dreadfully amateurish; Rymer clearly has no idea how to direct action and it's full …

One of my all time favourites

There is something about this movie that make me just love it. I like everything about it. The story, the script, the charaters and vampires. Vampires are cool. This is one of those movies that I watch again on a regular basis when the details about it begin to become fuzzy, I have seen it at least 5 times over the years since it was released and I know that I will see it again. I must confess that I have not read Anne Rice novel that this movie is based on, but I couldn't care less if the book is better. I think that argument is flawed based on the simple fact that you can't compete with the images that you have created in your mind and a movie that someone else have made. Following that logic nothing will ever be good enough.

This movie has a catchy story, a good cast superb music …

Best Vampire Movie Ever!!!!

The famous Vampire Lestat is back in this movie that is not so much a sequel, but rather a whole new story. It is in a whole different class than Interview with the Vampire. Aaliyah portrays the Queen of the Damned, Akasha. She is a perfect combination of that sensual attraction and frightening power that makes the vampire. Stuart Townsend is absolutely amazing as Lestat! He has that perfect sex appeal and intensity to capture your senses, but also a sexy brooding sense of danger in his character. It is much better than Interview with the Vampire. It is not like the book at all and perhaps that is why it succeeded, because it would have been impossible to explain the complicated plot of Anne Rice's brilliant novel. Nevertheless it highlights the important themes of the book.

The movie …
