The more you think about it, the sillier it seems . . . but despite that, the film remains entertaining because of Jordon's direction and a really unnerving supporting performance from Kirsten Dunst.

very odd vampire movie

1. (of a person, especially a man) homosexual. 2. lighthearted and carefree. 3. foolish, stupid, or unimpressive.

A crazy corny and laughably campy early-90's "Twilight". Other than Dunst, who brings some surprising gravitas to the dull affairs, the performances are so heightened they are impossible to take seriously; I kept waiting for Cruise and Pitt, in the prime of their pretty-boy phases, to start passionately making out. Despite some cool designs and a couple of standout moments, this overlong melodrama is a tonal and dated joke. Only watch if you want some unintended laughs.

It never gets too corny, unlike most modern vampire stories, and it's both darkly dramatic and comical.

above average vampire movie, cruise was more laughable than anything else

A very unique take on the life and ideas of vampires. A great historical perspective to the story of the characters. Great acting and a great cast.

Great movie. Although the ending is hokey.

Great movie. Interview with the Vampire is a great vampire movie in how different it is from other films. Audiences actually empathize with Pitt and Dunst's vampire characters, while equally hating Cruise's character, as they all portray their roles to perfection. The story itself is fairly clich├ęd, but still good, the visual effects are great, and the direction is solid.

Interview With a Vampire is iconic...the first Vampire story that I know of that introduced the gorgeous suffering immortal to households everywhere. The controversy surrounding the story only made it more infamous and the boundaries it pushes admittedly makes it more engrossing to watch. Lestat is a welcome contrast to Louis's eternal emo-ism and his disturbingly macabre value of humanity is well balanced by Louis. Their story is often as uncomfortable as it is elegant and the acting is sometimes brilliant and at other times groan worthy but not necessarily in a bad way. Overall it's fascinating and remains one of the most memorable movies I've ever watched.

The film is visually stunning and explores some genuinely fascinating ideas, such as how a child would react to becoming a vampire, but is just too silly to take seriously, and not silly enough to be genuinely funny.

7+/10

The cast was perfectly choosed, however "Interview with a vampire" suffers from a predictable narrative and from lack of interest, because of the desnecessary overtime used to approach this theme. However this movie has a thrilling and dark atmosphere, a lot of good performances by Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst, bringing to us the best of this actors, and it is a new story with a good script about vampires.

Tom Cruise over acts as usual where he does shouting to show he can do anger (or emotion he probably believes) where it's not necessary and Brad Pitt is still learning the rudiments of acting. Kirsten Dunst is the best actor by far in this movie showing everybody up with great acting skills. At times it works really well and can be quite entertaining but the script in parts lets it down and the two main leads

Needs less Tom Cruise.

Excellent adaptation that holds up fairly well to this day. Only downside is that it doesn't follow the books completely, but what movie ever does?

Best ann rice book made and the movie was surprisingly followed the book very closely which we all know rarely happens.

Great movie, great cast. Definitely one of my favorite vampire movies.
½ May 4, 2015
The movie sort of just plods along without much conflict or any interesting plot lines. The only interesting factor is the underlying homosexual dynamic between the characters, but it's not really enough to sustain a whole picture. As much as I don't care for Cruise, and all of the controversy surrounding his casting here, he did a fine job with the role. However, Brad Pitt doesn't do much with his performance that's reminiscent of Meet Joe Black.
