Ep. 03-08: Interview With the Vampire (1994)

Season Three, Episode 8 “Interview With The Vampire”

Louis (Brad Pitt) tells his story to an eager, modern-day biographer, Daniel (Christian Slater)… In the 18th century, suicidal after the death of his family, Louis meets Lestat (Tom Cruise), a charismatic vampire who persuades him to become his companion and choose immortality over death. Eventually, the gentle Louis resolves to leave his violent maker, but Lestat tricks him into staying by turning a child, Claudia (Kirsten Dunst), into a vampire. The addition creates turmoil within the “family” and draws attention in the larger vampire world.

Welcome to the first of our vampire selections for this season—a gorgeous, yet flawed film adaption of the wildly popular Vampire Chronicles of Anne Rice, Interview With the Vampire (1994). Join us as we discuss the long road to making this film (20 years), the trouble with its casting, and the magic the film still seems to harness despite its missteps. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys strolls from the 18th century to present, where vampires not only seek prey but also answers to the question of their existence.
