I watched the trailer twice and I don't hate it. I think it has potential. The cat that's playing Louis is acting his ass off and Lestat still looks pretty enough. Props to casting Eric Bogosian as the interviewer that was played by Christian Slater in the original film. I think he was referred to the "Boy" in the novel, so we'll see what Bogosian is referred to in the series. I am definitely interested now.

I think Eric Bogosian is an amazing actor so I may give this a shot but I just hope to hell it's not a huge hit and AMC suddenly has 7 more vampire shows loosely based on the franchise.

There is certainly enough material for that.

Aren't AMC also developing a Witching Hour series?

The novels that chronicle the Mayfair witches take place within the same "universe" that Rice's vampires inhabit, as do Rice's Mummy novels.

Thrilled to see this has an 84 on Metacritic (yes, it's only 7 reviews so far). No idea how many episodes of this they're rolling out this weekend.

I'm excited about this. The first four reviewers, all women, rated it 90 or above.

Iím convinced these early renewals before the first season even airs are just a ploy to get people to buy in to watching. Networks have shown they can easily ďun-renewĒ a show.

This was actually pretty good, but it bore little resemblance to the novel Interview with the Vampire. It's entertaining in its own right, but it's a terrible adaption of the source material. They could have changed the names of the characters and nobody would have thought it was based on the novel.

So the resolution of a show is indicative of it's quality and the driving factor on your viewing decisions? Odd....

Yea it is and matter of fact if they don't bother with Atmos It's pass too. It's ridiculous a show is produced without modern standards.

Re: Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire (AMC) -- premieres 10/2/22

I'm sure it was shot in 4K being a new production, the issue is probably that the AMC+ app doesn't support 4k yet. For what it's worth, it looked fantastic on AMC+. But was a smeary mess on the AMC channel. Plus they edited all the (female) nudity out. Lily was topless for a good long time in the streaming version. Not so much on the cable one. I only compared that one scene but wonder what else was too much for basic cable?

I had no idea. I am recording the series and was going to start watching this weekend, but now I'm deleting it. I'll check it out if/when it's available for free somewhere unedited. There's plenty of other stuff to watch.

Re: Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire (AMC) -- premieres 10/2/22

I'm confused, was this show ever promised to be in 4K? I don't recall anything ever mentioned. AMC doesn't even broadcast in 4K

So this is just a blind outrage over something that was never promised or advertised from the get go.

I didn't know that the nudity was edited; however, when I watched the scene with Lily I thought the camerawork to conceal her nudity was really well done. The scene isn't about her, literally, her presence is just a smoke screen so her nudity isn't important.

No one cares if it was announced . 4k is the standard for any new decent show, period. What good streaming platform doesn't use 4k at this point .....yea thought so.

Re: Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire (AMC) -- premieres 10/2/22

Someone explain something to me about this show, please:

Based on what I saw in the first episode, it was established that Eric Bogosian's character is the older version of the Christian Slater interviewer from the Cruise/Pitt movie. This was further established by showing the bite scar on his neck from when Lestat attacked him at the end of the movie.

So Louis sends him the tapes of the original interview from all those years ago, which also seem to contain the attack by Lestat at the end, if I heard correctly. Malloy goes to Louis, and they sit down for another interview, where Louis proceeds to regale him with his life story again, including how he came to be a vampire via Lestat.

But...

For some reason, this now happened at the beginning of this century instead of 200 years ago, and Louis is now a pimp instead of a plantation owner, as well as all the other changes which we won't get into.

My basic question is, if all the events from movie have been established, including Louis telling his life story as we saw it in the movie, why and how did his story change like it did? Am I missing something?

The movie with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt was a faithful adaption of the Anne Rice novel.

This new series is a complete reimagining of the novel(s) and has nothing to do with 1994 movie aside from sharing a title and main characters, and drawing inspiration from the source material. It's not intended as a sequel or continuation of that movie or storyline.

Has anyone compared any more episodes to see if there are differences in the broadcast AMC episodes and the pay streamer versions?
