    Gotta say, this isn't a 'horror' movie, per se. It's an existential melodrama that just happens to feature vampires. Cruise and Dunst do alarmingly well and blow Pitt's mostly one-note performance off stage. The sets and music are pretty remarkable. But the violent nature of vampires never sits well with the dramatic aspirations or the ponderous pacing, though it does well to convey the folly of the human desire for immortality, dominance and compulsive lust. Sexual charge aside, you're left wondering how vampires could have gained such cultural allure given how their eternal life only leads to eternal loss and nihilism. Bella would do wise to avoid Lestat and his ilk, that's for sure. 6 years 6 months ago
