TBT: Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994), plus Queen of the Damned (2002)


This is pretty obvious for Halloween time, but I realized I haven’t given Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) a proper deep-dive. It may be a cheesy vampire movie in many ways, but it’s also chock full of luscious historical costumes designed by Sandy Powell. And while I was giving it a re-watch, I also re-watched the not-really sequel Queen of the Damned (2002). That one absolutely is schlock with mostly modern costumes by Angus Strathie, but there’s a brief historical bit, and comparing the two is interesting. So let’s get our fangs on and do this!

    Queen of the Damned is quite silly, and not at all historical really. But, there is a brief conversation between LeStat and Marius I enjoyed. Lestat asks how Marius got through the 1950s in red velvet, Marius said he slept through the 50s. Lestat says “You didn’t miss much” and Marius sums up the entire decade by saying, in a questioning tone “Elvis?”

    Made me laugh

    There is also a brief scene of Marius’ portraits in various art styles through the ages that is rather fun.
