My Perspective on the Classic Interview With the Vampire Movie

Updated on May 24, 2012

If you are looking for one of the best vampire movies of all time, you may want to check this one out. The vampires of this movie have a certain sense of style, intrigue and fascination that makes this a unique movie to watch. Unlike the most recent HBO series "True Blood", "Interview with the Vampire" has a certain vampiric romanticism and darkness about it. Lestat which is played by Tom Cruise is on the hunt for a companion to live out the rest of his life with. He finds Louis who is played by Brad Pitt. Long hairs and gorgeous attire is seasoned with fashion and sex appeal in this movie from beginning to end.

One of the most famous scenes that is most recognizable to me is the tavern scene where Lestat and Louis get together for the night with a creole woman and suck her blood till she drops dead in front of them. Lestat then pays her for her service of accompanying them. Quite a memorable scene to say the least. In the movie, Lestat is lonely until he find Louis and they embark on an adventure in New Orleans, Louisiana. Louis, although quite hesitant rebukes his new dark gift that is given to him by Lestat which takes him further away from what he truly is. Rats and small animals is what he sucks the blood out of instead of humans to appease his still human conscious.

It almost seems like a never ending agony of existence until one day Louis is walking down a plague ridden street and finds a little girl crouching to beckon her mother to wake up. Louis takes the girl and strikes her neck with his fangs almost killing her until Lestat shows up and laughs out loud to applaud Louis in his recent undertaking. Lestat, who is happy to see Louis come to his senses, brings the plague ridden girl back home and offers to turn her into a vampire so she can join the newly formed family. Of course things don't work out for Claudia and Lestat as they continuously bump heads together. In the end, Claudia attempts to kill Lest due to indifference and her and Louis head to France to start a new life.

Everything seems to go well until they are found by other vampires that are not in total agreement to what Claudia did to her own kind. From beginning to end, the movie is well made and interesting to watch. It brings to the scene a culture of long ago. Scenery from New Orleans, Louisiana and Paris, France are the main places where the scenery is set. From the lavish lifestyle and clothing, to the blood sucking routine of daily vampire life. This movie brings an awesome twist. It also always keeps things sophisticated and alluring for the audience to watch over and over again. This movie to me is an automatic 10/10. So, if you haven't watched it yet so really need to.
