Movie Review: Interview With the Vampire

Welcome to my third movie review as part of the Gothic Film Club, hosted by Write For A Reader and sponsored by Michelle Zink, author of Prophecy of the Sisters.

This week, I chose to watch and review Interview With the Vampire. Louis shares his story of how he got to be a vampire, and the others that he shared the experience with over hundreds of years.

I'm honestly not quite sure how to review this one. I enjoyed watching it, but in a strange way. It was interesting hearing about the life of a vampire, and unlike any movie I've seen before. As new vampires were either met or brought in to the family, I was drawn in and wanted to learn more about how everything worked. Watching how they sucked the blood of their victims was intriguing, but eerie (if the sight of blood makes you queasy, this is probably not a good movie to watch.) Honestly, the first half of the movie held my attention better than the second half; though the latter still had some entertaining moments. Probably not a movie I'd watch again, but it was worth seeing once.

Overall rating: 3.5/5
