Vampires of television and film
'Interview with the Vampire'(1994)
This adaptation of the wildly popular Anne Rice novel takes the menage a trois to a whole new level. When the ravenous, magnetic Lestat (Tom Cruise, left) homoerotically sinks his teeth into the supple neck of a handsome lost soul named Louis (Brad Pitt, right), he sends the man into flights of ecstasy and transforms him into his vampire protege. To placate a regretful Louis, Lestat produces another companion in the form of a little girl, Claudia (Kirsten Dunst). Years later, a frustrated Claudia is a woman trapped in the physical body of a child and yearns to consummate her love for Louis. In a fit of rage, she stabs Lestat, but Louis continues to reject her.
