I just saw the film Queen of the damned yesterday and I was disappointed beyond expectation. I had heard that the homoerotic undertones (sometimes more explicit) from the books was much more represented here than in Interview with a Vampire. I was so disappointed. There was no homo eroticism whatsoever. Lestat, who we all no to be at least bisexual and always switching partners, end up with Jessie, who in the book was made a vampire by Maharat after having sex with her. Even Louis was cut out. He may even be the closest to a lifelong companion for Lestat, if you can called it that, and then they completely cut him out. I love Anne Rices Vampire Chronicles, but the filmmakers have completely destroyed the beauty and passion. I think Interview with a Vampire is better than Queen of the Damned. At least it has some of the beauty from the books and there are some allusions to the relationship between Lestat and Louis, and between Louis and Armand.
