Queen of the Damned (2002)

I just rented Queen of the Damned, based on the novel by Anne Rice and sequel to Interview with the Vampire (1994). None of the actors are the same. There’s no Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, or Antonio Banderas. Some of the same characters are played by younger actors which makes sense since they are Vampires and vampires don’t age.

Stuart Townsend’s portrail of Lestat is very similar to Tom Cruise’s Lestat. Aaliyah character is interesting. Her character is pretty flat so it’s hard to judge her acting.

If you liked the first movie or are a fan of the novels, then this movie is a required watch. You don’t need to have seen the first movie to follow this movie but it helps to put the characters together.
