Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

The story is told to a young reporter in San Francisco in the 1990's by a vampire recounting his life of darkness.Louis was a wealthy sugar plantation owner in New Orleans in the late 1700's. His wife and daughter die and he is distraught, not caring if he himself lives or dies. He gets drunk in bars in New Orleans trying to drown his sorrows when he catches the eye of Lestat, a vampire. Lestat eventually attacks Louis and gives him the choice of life as a vampire or death, he chooses to become a vampire. The story then tells of Louis' struggle to take human life and live as a vampire and how they made a young girl a vampire and lived for many years as a macabre 'family', preying on the wealthy and elite of the time. Louis and the girl Claudia eventually escape Lestat's tyranny by killing him and fleeing to Paris to find a group of vampires to try and answer Louis' eternal question of how vampires became to be and how can such evil exist. These questions cannot be answered but another vampire has found out that Louis & Claudia have killed their own kind. Claudia get's murdered by the Parisian vampires in revenge but Louis get's rescued by the leader of this group and promptly sets about killing them all by fire (except the leader). The story eventually brings us into the 1990's where we discover Lestat did'nt die after all and Louis still roams the streets.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the movie, at the bridge inside the car there is a fight between Lestat and Daniel so no one should be driving the car, but you can clearly see a man driving it and he's all covered in black. (01:56:10)

More trivia for Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

Question: Why did they decide to go with an older looking Armand? I thought the rules about vampire children would have seemed more apparent if the audience could see that he was one, so why the change?

Answer: The first problem was finding a child actor capable of playing the role - Armand is an extraordinarily complex character and it's highly questionable that a child actor could have played him to the requirements of the script. Secondly, there are some extremely homosexual overtones in the relationship between Louis and Armand (and, for that matter, Louis and Lestat) - while the film just about manages to get away with the relationship between Louis and Claudia, it's extremely likely that there would have been major problems with the censors and critics at any attempt to portray the relationship between Louis and a child Armand. The requirements of the story dictated that Claudia needed to be a child, but there's nothing that insists the same for Armand - hence the eventual decision to up his age.
