Movie Review: Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

Lestat and Louis, the vampires immortalized in Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, are holding a blood drive, and you’re invited. You won’t need a crucifix. Or garlic. Or even a stake. Just bring your desire for thrills and excitement. You’re about to experience the ultimate revisionist vampire tale. Neil Jordan’s Interview with the Vampire (B+) is a stylish thriller combining a fascinating cast of characters with glamorous locales and a twisted brand of dark humor. It’s a cunning mixture of theatrical gusto and cinematic horror. Tom Cruise is coy and confident, Brad Pitt brooding and Kirsten Dunst disarming in their roles as surrogate bloodsucking family. Extend your wrist, tilt your neck and give in!

Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
