The Queen of the Damned

Revealing mistake: When Marius is talking to Lestat on the beach, the victim that Lestat drops is a dummy.

Audio problem: In the scene during the flashback of when Lestat was first created during the shot with the girl on the beach, Lestat begins to play with her. When there is a close up of the woman's face, you can see her bow strokes. However, the strokes don't match up with the audio on the song you hear.

Revealing mistake: Just after the flying scene when Lestat and Jesse land on the rail of the building, when Jesse falls you can tell for a few seconds that she is standing just below the view of the camera because her hand is just sitting there before Lestat grabs it.

Trivia: There's a scene where Jesse gets out of a cab and is harassed by a scalper selling tickets to Lestat's concert. The scalper is played by none other than Jonathan Davis who performed many of the movie's original songs.

Question: In the opening shot, the camera lingers on LeStat's tomb for just a second. What did the door say? The picture on VHS is to grainy for me to read if it is paused, and the shot goes too fast.

Chosen answer: All I can read is the name, Sebastian Fairchild. The rest of the text is too small and the camera angle is too far up to be readable.

Question: What is the name of the first song Lestat sings at the rock concert in Death Valley?

Chosen answer: The song is "Slept So Long" which was originally performed by the lead singer of Korn, Johnathan Davis for the movie, but on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack it is performed by Jay Gordon of Orgy.

Question: Why would they try to combine both The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned into one movie? They twisted the story line and left out some key characters and elements. What did Anne Rice think about this?

Chosen answer: She disowned the movie completely. The situation was that if no movie had been made from her books by a particular date, then the rights would revert back to Anne Rice herself. In order to forestall this, Warner Brothers threw something together using the bits that they liked from two different books. The result was functional, barely, but was hardly a worthy companion to the books.
