Our impressions and movie review:

“Interview with the Vampire” is considered by many cinephils as a classic in this genre. Excellent scenario, superb performances – even from Tom Cruise – of the dramatic roles of the protagonists and atmospheric scenery that tie the previous two and elevate the movie to higher artistic levels. So… since vampires did not start with Edward Cullen… the scenario for the movie adaptation is written by the author Anne Rice who published the novel “Interview with the Vampire” in 1976!
