Tony, Johanna, and Kira team up to talk about the first movie based of the late Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. In this movie review/podcast they will talk about all the things that make this great like the performances by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, its creepy unsettling tone, and how it expertly adapts the source material.
Born as an 18th-century lord, Louis is now a bicentennial vampire, telling his story to an eager biographer. Suicidal after the death of his family, he meets Lestat, a vampire who persuades him to choose immortality over death and become his companion. Eventually, gentle Louis resolves to leave his violent maker, but Lestat guilts him into staying by turning a young girl — whose addition to the “family” breeds even more conflict.
