Interview with the Vampire
I think this is a movie that is often looked over until you and your friends start talking about the best vampire films. This is exactly what happened to me. When I though about it, this is probably in my top 3 vampire films of all time. If you've never seen it, you need to watch it.
Interview with the Vampire is a film based on the novel "Interview with the Vampire" by Anne Rice. Another must-see vampire flick to watch especially around Halloween time. You will see familiar faces starring in this film: Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater, and Kristen Dunst. Louis (Brad Pitt) doesn't like being a vampire. He tries to tell the reporter (Christian Slater) that he is a 200-year-old vampire but the reporter doesn't seem to believe him.
A vampire movie that features Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst. Based off of Ann Rice's book. A Vampire tells his tail to a reporter.
Horror author Anne Rice penned the screenplay for this full-blooded adaptation of her novel, which chronicles the life of 18th-century nobleman Louis (Brad Pitt) after he is bitten by powerful, charismatic vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise). Though enthralled with the undead lifestyle at first, Louis is unable to warm up to killing humans and grows despondent. To comfort Louis, Lestat creates another vampire (Kirsten Dunst in a star-making peformance), a young girl who from then on cannot age. Antonio Banderas appears as Armand, a 400-year-old vampire, and Christian Slater plays the radio producer who interviews the remorseful Louis. Director Neil Jordan captures the lush decadence and erotic fervor of the novel, infusing the film with rich, dusky tones. The big budget is well used to bring each period and place to sharply detailed life, and there is no skimping on the blood or immortal angst. Thandie Newton has a small role as Louis's Creole servant near the beginning of the film, and Jordan regular Stephen Rea appears as a Parisian vampire theater star. INTERVIEW broke weekend box-office records when it premiered and has since earned a spot in the pantheon of great vampire films.
