Interview With the Vampire

It’s Halloween! And what better way to celebrate the day the ghosts and ghouls come out to play, than by watching our favorite creepy Tom Cruise movie, Interview With the Vampire? Join us for a look at another excellent movie adaptation of a popular book from the Tom Cruise collection!

Smartass Summary: Tom Cruise dresses like Louis XIV.

Slightly less smartass summary: The one about Stockholm Syndrome.

Ok ok, REAL summary: A guy loses his family, but then gets another, much weirder one, 50% of which he kinda hates. Or maybe kinda loves a lot, he’s not really sure…

Overall opinion:
Buttered Popcorn loves this movie! It’s thoughtful and frightening (though more on an intellectual level than a jump-scare or even a gory-scare level). And it’s a book adaptation that makes major changes, but still manages to keep the spirit (and many great details) of the book intact. Who doesn’t love something like that? Naturally, you don’t have to have read the book in order to enjoy the movie, but if you want loads more information on the three primary characters of the film, you’ll definitely want to read the first book, Interview With the Vampire. And if you want even more great info about Tom Cruise’s character, check out The Vampire Lestat as well.

Surely you’ve already got your copy of this great film! But if not, or if your friends don’t have a copy yet, the season of giving is coming up soon! Check the link below for more info:

Now, let’s get bloody!
