Queen of the Damned "Aaliyah" DVD

In case you were wondering, this movie is a combination of TWO books in the Vampire Chronicles series by Anne Rice: The Vampire Lestat and, of course, Queen of the Damned. A lot of things about vampires (including what the heck Lestat is doing there in the first place) are explained in the books and not explained at all in the movie, so it can be a little confusing if you haven't read Anne Rice before. Also, this movie is NOT a continuation of Interview with the Vampire. In the book series they are connected, but the movie is entirely separated from the first story. Lestat doesn't even mention Louis, he's hardly even the same character he was in the Interview with the Vampire movie.
Actually, everything in this movie is completely different from the book. The movie is probably what the book would have been like if Anne Rice had run out of paper and could only write ten pages.
In any case, this movie is a lot of fun. Everything seems very fast and exciting, while a bit dark and creepy at the same time. The characters aren't particularly deep or interesting, and neither is the story line. They're mere shadows of what was in the book. But for some reason, this movie is still fun to watch
