If you love vamps,watch this

After an aristocratic Louisiana gentleman's abrupt transformation into a vampire at the hands of a mysterious foreigner, he reluctantly settles into a life of nocturnal domesticity, augmented by the addition of a little girl.

Top Notch!

Vampires are fortunately not real... but they sure are alive and well in Hollywood. They are iconic of everlasting life, but by living forever, are bound to darkness... they also tend to leave a nasty bite! This is probably how the average Joe will sketch these familiar bloodsuckers. Enter Interview With the Vampire. Let me start by saying that this film will probably fail to interest a younger audience in that the film moves more to being a director’s artistic take of the best-seller novel by Anne Rice than a good old fashioned “scare, chase, bite, escape” adventure thrill that’s reminiscent of vampires’ place in cinema. I’ve just about completed my collection of vampire movies and this one certainly opens a new window on “the psyche of vampires” that other flicks simply fail to explore. Whilst it may sound silly to sympathize with beings from the underworld, in an eerie kind of way this film does exactly that. It takes you from the humble beginnings of one vampire and, through an interview with a flabbergasted reporter, explores recollections of how his (Pitt) thirst for living blood ultimately overpowers him and drives him to do the unthinkable. Don’t get me wrong, this film still is pretty dark and sinister and does justice to the Fang Club with some dramatic “escape” sequences and clever twists. Another interesting thing is the cast: Tom Cruise/Brad Pitt – arguably two of the most well known and successful actors of their time have already been “immortalized” in Hollywood cinema history – in a sense just like the creatures they are portraying. Then again… Vampires are fortunately not real... but they sure are alive and well in Hollywood.
