“My partner sucks”

Films: Interview with the Vampires (1994)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Apparently, filmmakers believe that vampires are the ultimate chick magnets. Almost every tale has them seduce young ladies to either conversion or death. But guess what? It ain't limited to girls...

History: Lestat de Lioncourt was a rather powerful vampire known for his charisma and absolute professionalism at his killings. One day, he came across the suicidal and depressed Louis, and offered to turn him into a vamp too. Louis agreed, but as time went one, Lestat became rather possessive of him, almost as if he had...more than just base feelings for him. But Louis doesn't like killing people for blood, while Lestat revels in it. Talk about the odd couple!

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: Louis leaves Lestat in the dust after the vampire takes his antics too far in what might be the most depressing supernatural divorce ever. However, Lestat later encounters the man that Louis was being interviewed by, and offers him the choice of becoming a vampire...

Powers/Abilities: Speed and strength that stacks with age, as well as mind-reading and wall-walking.

Weakness: Only sunlight, fire, dismemberment, and each other can kill a vampire.

Scariness Factor: 4-Lestat is a modern Dracula if there ever was one. Aside from being played by an actor that literally does not age (enough with the anti-aging stuff already, Cruise), he is deceitful and, while pragmatic, loves the taste of blood. That said, he is a little pathetic when he doesn't get what he wants.

Trivia: -The book series this film was based on, "The Vampire Chronicles", was a lot more explicit with the homosexual subtext between Lestat and Louis. They shared the same coffin, for corn's sake!

-Brad Pitt, the one who plays Louis in this film, did not like working on it at all, at one point begging another producer to get him the Hell out of there. His dislike mainly stemmed from all the tedium of the costuming and make-up.

After all of this, who wants to do that?!


With teeth like that, of course he was gonna be an animal in human clothing!

The blood of innocents isn't a good look for your teeth.

Lestat's handiwork in motion.
