AMC is taking a big swing trying to bring Interview With The Vampire to the screen. It’s an ambitious project to take a universe that is as beloved as The Vampire Chronicles is and successfully bring it to the screen.
As a fan who has read almost every book that Anne wrote and was not a big fan of the 1994 film I said from the beginning that AMC would either get this very right, or very wrong. No middle ground.
They got it right. They created a complex, lush, hypnotic, dark, sensuous world that effortlessly blends modern day with the past. They managed to modernize the story without sacrificing the timeless themes that have captured the imagination of readers for decades.
