If you have read the book of the same name by Anne Rice, you will be extremely disappointed. The movie touches on the key points of the novel, but does not go into detail which leaves gaping holes in the plot. But if you see this just looking for a good vampire flick, then you will definetely want to see it again.

Stuart Townsend does a remarkable job of playing the part of the vampire turned rockstar Lestat, who narrates the movie. He is seductive, cunning, and thirsty. The story also follows Jessie, a mortal woman who was adopted by an ancient vampire, unbeknownst to her. She is a member of the Talamasca, a society dedicated to studies in the supernatural, which leads her to Lestat. Akasha, played by Aaliyah, is awakened by Lestat's music. She is the Queen of the Damned, mother of all vampires, and wants Lestat for her companion in destroying the mortal and vampire race. Unfortunately, the rest of the vampires are portrayed as modern day goths and not the mysterious, alluring creatures we have come to associate with the vampire myth.

Since this movie is a sequel to Interview With The Vampire, it is a letdown that they did not keep with the facts presented there. In Interview, Lestat says to Louis before he turns him into a vampire, "I will give you the choice I never had." But in Queen, we meet his maker, Marius, and Lestat narrates that he was given a choice and Marius taught him everything.

The concert portion of the movie where Lestat's band, The Vampire Lestat, performs is very riveting, and you can also catch a cameo by Jonathan Davis (from Korn) who produced the soundtrack and is the voice behind Lestat.

"Queen of the Damned" featured the last performance of Aaliyah. The problem is she didn't spent too much time in the movie. She was in only 20 minutes, during her time, she didn't do much of anything and instead she gave a boring performance.

As for the movie, it more of the same, the violence and the gore. There's not much to see in this tiresome horror flick based on the book by Anne Rice. "Interview with a Vampire" was better.
