After the interview, Malloy (Slater) tries to persuade Louis (Pitt) to give him his blood so he may become a vampire as well. Louis intimidates Malloy, asking him if his story of pain and suffering was not enough to persuade him, then holds him by his throat to the ceiling before disappearing.Malloy hops into his car and drives off, listening to the tape of the interview when he is pulled into the backseat and bitten by Lestat (Cruise) who finally recovers completely thanks to Malloy's blood. Ejecting the tape, he weaves his web of deceit on Malloy, giving him the same offer he made to Louis centuries earlier...
Lestat: It's your coffin, my love. Enjoy it. Most of us never get to know what it feels like.
Louis: Why do you do this?
Lestat: I like to do it. I enjoy it. Take your aesthete's taste to purer things, kill them swiftly, if you will, but do it. For do not doubt: you are a killer, Louis.
