Now here’s something to sink your teeth into! Breathing new life into Anne Rice’s classic Interview with the Vampire, the brand new series of the same name is available now on iPlayer and DVD and Blu-ray and we have TWO copies to give away!
This blood-soaked saga of immortality, love and revenge stars Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Eric Bogosian (Succession) and Sam Reid (The Newsreader), and marks the thrilling first instalment of AMC’s emerging Immortal Universe series based on Anne Rice’s lauded The Vampire Chronicles.
The show begins in modern-day Dubai, where vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac (Anderson) sits down with renowned journalist Daniel Molloy (Bogosian) to share the story of his life – or rather, his afterlife – which begins in the hustle and bustle of 20th-century New Orleans. There, challenged by the constraints as a queer Black man in 1900s America, Louis finds it impossible to ignore the irresistible allure of Lestat de Lioncourt’s (Reid) offer of the ultimate escape: a chance to outmanoeuvre the confines of mortality and join him as his vampire companion.
“This book is almost 50 years old and there’s a whole new generation that I believe will be very happy with what we’ve done,” said Rolin Jones, Executive Producer and Writer of Interview With The Vampire.
Fans of the book and Nineties movie can expect something different with the series: “Fans will always have the novel and there is the movie, which everybody embraced and was very popular. But there’s no reason to repeat that. People who have read Anne’s books closely will quickly figure out how much love and reverence are woven into the first season. AMC has opened up and allowed us to go into these darker places in this novel. It’s really super exciting.”
