Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

Revealing mistake: When Lestat returns from the swamp and attacks Louis and Claudia, he advances towards Claudia around the piano and his shirt flies up, showing normal flesh color on his back, only his face and hands are covered in makeup.

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the hotel with the two serving wenches, Lestat bites the woman through her dress and she gasps showing a complete line of fillings. (00:32:30)

Revealing mistake: After Lestat bites the breast of the whore and she begins to scream, he bites her wrist and you can see the outline of the blood device in the sleeve of her dress.

Revealing mistake: When Lestat bites Louis and then drops him in the Mississippi River, Louis is walking back onto land and telephone poles are visible in the background.

Revealing mistake: When Louis is burning down the theatre, he attacks and kills Santiago with a scythe. When Santiago lands on the floor cut in half, Louis drops the scythe down on to him, where it proceeds to bounce up off what is obviously a fake rubber dummy of Santiago.

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)

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.
