Interview with the Vampire is a look behind the curtain of one of the best regarded monster of cinema history. The protagonists are vampires learning to deal with a curse rather than a gift. They are immortal, are part of the bourgeoisie and travel a great lot to remain unknown. They are sensual and sexual tortured creatures of the night, which reminds us of the classic cinematic vampires.
It is a quintessential depiction of the “romantic vampire”. The sets and costumes do a great immersion job. Paired with an appropriate score, they greatly contributes to a thick, palpable ambiance, this being a period piece. Horror, adventure, fantasy, romance; you get it all in a nice package. The film is high on emotion, intricately narrated and paced, and it displays astonishing cinematography.
Many taboos are addressed; some titillating, others darkly shocking. We’re in good hands, though; the subversive material is handled with style and taste. This is indubitably one of the best vampire films out there. It’s Gothic, both gorgeous and ugly, and the performances are nothing short of awesome; they manage to appeal both to a crowd with a love for the subgenre and the general audience.
