Exactly what I expected

This film was basically set up for failure by the studio. One, Anne Rice (author of the book) offered to write the screen play but was refused by the studio. Two, they tried to stuff 2 in depth novels in to a 2hour movie.

I maintain the only way for these two books -Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned- to work in a live action form would be through a mini-series. First off the the Vampire Lestat alone takes place from the 1700's to the 1980's and has a plethora of character vital to the plot understanding of the main character, Lestat. The entire book Vampire Lestat sets up the events of the second part Queen of the Damned. Without that full understanding the premise of a movie is destroyed.

Lestat was not cruel and vicious to all, he was not wanting to go along with Akasha's plans, Marius did not make Lestat, Lestat did not love Jesse or make her, Lestat could not go remain unscathed by the light, Marius was not after David nor the other way around, every character was completely represented wrong, BASICALLY same names different story.

If they wanted to make a vampire movie, fine. Even if you wanted to be inspired by these novels, fine. But don't piggie back into the theaters off the success of Rice's great novels and characters just to destroy what her loyal readers have come to love.

If you haven't read the books you won't understand the film really, if you have read the books you will be insulted. That being said, I am such a huge fan I had to see the movie knowing full well this was going to be the case and still went for it. Catch 22, must see it, will hate it.

Read the book instead.

This movie was a good book turned into a brain dead vampire movie aimed at teenagers. First of all it's based on half the story (the book before it in the series "The Vampire Lestat" ended with the beginning of "Queen of the Damned") They left out main characters, omitted the histories, and even changed how Lestat became a vampire, what was left out of "Interview With The Vampire" felt like they just needed to fit into some time constraints, what they did with "Queen of the Damned" was a hack and slash job. Even taking it separately from the book, it was at best mediocre. The characters were two dimensional, and bland, and the plot was boring and unconnected. This movie's only redeeming qualities were the mood the lighting and the sets added, and the costumes, which both were wonderful, but besides that, read the book instead.

Waste of time

I've watched it disregarding anything related to the books, therefore, I wouldn't judge the movie by any fidelity with the novels (I've read The Vampire Lestat but not Queen of the Damned). Having said that, it is indeed a bad movie. Bad acting, horrible visual and sound effects. Gutural sounds when biting, no blood after feeding, blur and trails behind the vampires movements. Interview with the Vampire was able to show very elegant special effects but this movie is hard to watch. It isn't a good movie even if measured only by it's story or if you don't care about the books.
