Deuxième adaptation cinématographique de l’œuvre d’Anne Rice après Interview with the Vampire, Queen of the Damned s’amuse à faire réapparaître le vampire Lestat dans l’univers contemporain du rock gothique.

Lassé de vivre dans l’ombre, Lestat choisit de devenir une star du rock afin de se révéler au monde. Sa pâleur, sa peur de la lumière et ses dents pointues sont alors tolérées comme des excentricités d’artiste. Mais les autres vampires ne voient pas d’un bon œil cette vie sous les feux des projecteurs.

La comparaison avec Interview with the Vampire est inévitable. Dans la peau de Lestat, le jeune Stuart Townsend, qui s’apparente davantage à un Jim Morrison christique qu’à un vampire, n’atteint jamais le degré de cynisme amusé et raffiné de Tom Cruise. Les décors y sont plus tape-à-l’œil, et le mystère y est moins étoffé. En fait, Queen of the Damned manque de cette distance élégante et froide qui caractérisait le film de Neil Jordan, bien que l’apparition de Vincent Perez en vampire créateur de Lestat y remédie quelque peu. La prestation de la chanteuse Aaliyah en reine des damnés cruelle et féroce est également assez convaincante. Mais malgré quelques bons éléments, l’époque choisie n’est assurément pas celle qui sied le mieux aux vampires. --Helen Faradji --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Queen of the Damned"is based on the novel by Anne Rice,as part of her
popular "The Vampire Chronicles" series.The screenplay is written by
Scott Abbott,and directed by Michael Rymer(various episodes of the new
Battlestar Galactica Series)Stuart Townsend plays the vampire Lestat de
Lioncourt,and Aaliyah plays Queen Akasha,The Queen of the Damned.the
basic plot is that Lestat has been asleep for hundred of years.he wakes
up to a new world and craves to become famous.he becomes a wildly
popular rock singer,and publicly announces the existence of
vampires.The vampires are threatened by this and believe their
continued survival is at risk.they attempt to destroy Lestat before he
can do irreparable harm.meanwhile,Lestat's music has awakened an
ancient evil,Akasha,mother of all vampires"queen of the Damned".Akasha
has decided to take Lestat as her king.i'll leave the plot at
that.moving on,Stuart Townsend,as Lestat,gives an astounding
performance.his charisma and screen presence radiate off the
screen.But,it is Aaliyah,in the title role,who steals the show with a
performance nothing short of miraculous.she is simply smoldering as the
queen.this is Aaliyah's last screen role before tragedy struck.there is
no doubt she would have gone on to become a legend.as for the movie
itself,it is stylish beyond words,beautifully photographed,superbly
directed.add to that a haunting musical score,and you have one
extraordinary movie.i loved this film. 5/5

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 13 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Vampire Lestat ( Stuart Townsend) takes a nap for a few hundred years because the 18th and 19th centuries were boring. Apparently life begins at a NIN concert. Lestat joins a band and somehow is instantly a success in an age before Simon Cowell (must be a chapter they skipped from the book). He openly claims to be a vampire to the dismay of vampires in hiding and taunts them, "Come out come out whoever you are." It didn't take long for him to pick up the modern accents and slang.

There is a lot of loose talk of loneliness and "the dark wasteland of eternity" apparently a theme designed to appeal to the immortals among us, for some reason I failed to connect to it.

Our title character (Aaliyah ) makes her first real appearance about halfway into the film. Catchy title, but it really was all about him and not her.

The film is a modern erotic thriller without sex and nudity, something that most filmmakers can't accomplish.

Now what if "Concrete Blond" was composed of vampires and they had a battle of the bands...

I did not read the Anne Rice books, so I don't know how bad the adaptation was or wasn't.

I enjoyed the music in the film more than the acting. Stuart was great in his role and I am still scratching my head at Aaliyah's accent. Was that was supposed to be ancient Egyptian or something? Sounded more Akkadian.

Some f-bombs in music lyrics.

Quickly: not bad, not good, could see it being a cult film, sure the 'Rice' fans loved or loathed it.

Summary: another odd movie. It's called Queen of the Damned but takes a lot of it's story from The Vampire Lestat. Pretty much seemed like a bunch of hollywood tycoons looked at the sucess of The Crow and Interview and decided to make a movie that kinda mixed the two. Lestat the vampire wakes after years of slumber due to NuRock and makes a band. Then breaks the Traditions (don't mind me mixing Vamp mythologies will you?) and calls out the Vampires and gives away their secrets. At the same time he awakens the Queen of the Vampires and gets chased by fangirl Talamasca Jessie.

The Good: Some of the effects were pretty cool, pretty much everything but the 'speed' effect was kinda neat to see. I thought Mr. Townsend made a good Lestat. I personally liked the soundtrack mixing some good Alternative/Metal/Industrial and NuRock. It seemed to fit well, though the music videos had to go. The characterizations were pretty good for most of the characters. I could definately see this making some fanboys/girls happy.

The Bad: I could have sworn Jessie was a lot younger in the books, it's been a long time though. The whole Talamasca think could have been explained way better. I am sure there were many people out there thinking wtf at this one. It was definately created for fans of the books. The effects of flying vamps and speed were really annoyingly sad.

The Ugly: still confused as to why they mixed and matched a bunch of different storylines. Maybe they new this would flop and it would be the only chance to get some of this stuff out there. Why does a vampire who's skin is solid like stone, also have jewelery and clothes that look like stone.

I hated Tom Cruise as Lestat. I thought he violated the heart of the character. He played Lestat as a fop which to some degree was the misperception of Louis. (Louis didn't know at the time that Toms family was pretty much wiped out and actually was minor nobility and Louis didn't understand until much later Lestats loneliness nor how Lestat had protected him. He also didn't know then that all of Lestats kills even then were justice and not indiscriminate)Tom Cruise came across as a vicious prankster.
Although Interview was very sumptuous visually, Tom Cruises portrayal ruined the movie for me.
Townsons portrayal was much more accurate, dangerous,danger loving and sexual at the same time. The only thing really amiss in the characterization is that Lestat can be very introspective though never to the degree Louis is(well he came pretty close in M the Devil.) Also I thought the MTV video type action was quite in keeping with the tone of the book.
What was totally frustrating was the ending. The movie departed so much from the book and made such a mess of the characters that you would have a hard time relating to the remaining books if Queen the movie was your only reference.
