The Vampire Lestat, ageless, immortal and evil is sustained
through the centuries by the blood of countless victims. Louis
De Pointe Du Lac is a broken man, devastated by the loss of
his beloved wife and infant daughter. Amid the unbearable
heat of New Orleans, the air thick with desire and unspeakable
horror, Louis encounters Lestat. Over 200 years later, Louis
decides to tell his story - a vampire's story of love, yearning,
grief, terror and ecstasy - to a young reporter, weaving the
history that will come to be known as Interview With The
movie brought together some of the greatest talent working
in Hollywood. Cruise and Pitt are perfect as the two undead
blood quaffers. There is hardly a bad scene, actor or line
of dialogue in the whole production and is arguable the greatest
modern vampire story to be brought to the big screen.
why this DVD is entitled 'Special Edition' is never quite
explained. The extras are nothing exciting and the 'Special
Introduction' by the author, Anne Rice, and the director,
Neil Jordon, is pointless - one minute of clips and a few
throw away remarks. Oh, and this introduction plays whether
you want it to or not at the start of the movie. The packaging
comes in the form of the truly horrible Warner patented cardboard
sleeve stuck to a plastic click-pack which I have never understood.
It looks ugly, it soon starts to come unstuck and it looks
cheap. Thankfully another cardboard sleeve is provided to
place over this eyesore.
With The Vampire is an exceptionally well acted, directed
and produced movie that, to be honest, no amount of extras
would have made any difference.
you've already bought this on DVD it's not worth buying this
edition, but if you want a great movie that can be watched
again and again then this is a must buy.
