Released:

Rating:
R

Queen of the Damned is a horror film directed by Michael Rymer inspired by Anne Rice's vampire novels, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned, which follows the awakening of the vampire Lestat (Stuart Townsend), a devilishly handsome and manipulative playboy who lives his life by no rules. After sleeping for decades in a crypt in New Orleans, Louisiana, he awakens and takes a local rock band into international stardom, playing on Lestat's vampirism as a stage gag. It seems that Lestat's newest antics has brought the attention of not only his maker, Marius (Vincent Perez), but the interest of a paranormal research group Talamasca and the long-dormant Akasha (Aaliyah), the first ever vampire and deemed Queen of the Damned. As Jesse Reeves (Marguerite Moreau) tracks him down, the awakened Akasha follows him, leaving young vampires destroyed in her wake. While Lestat revels in the humans love for him just as Marius and the other vampires shun the public eye, Akasha desires to turn the world into a bloody playground. That is, unless the other ancient vampires of the world join forces to save themselves and humanity.

    "Queen" is a movie that stoops to jokes like calling Lestat's CD "a monster hit"; the movie is just a plain old monster.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Turns out to be a muddled limp biscuit of a movie, a vampire soap opera that doesn't make much sense even on its own terms.
