But as I lay there, the world didn't sound like the place. In this scene we are introduced to Pandora, Armand, Mael, Khayman and Maharet as they first approach Marius next to the Hollywood sign, and we are given some insight into their relationships with each other. Marius who did not make Lestat btw in the chronicles is the great reasoner of the Vampires. Robin Casinader composed the music. He was never jealous of Lestat drinking from Akasha he himself had many many times and didn't try to hide Enkil and Akasha from Lestat. Honestly, don't bother seeing the movie, read the book. This might have been a good movie it they hadn't of associated it with the book.
They changed so much of the story that they will be unable to make any of the other books into movies without changing them completely also or remaking this one. In it Marius tells Lestat that what keeps him going is seeing what human beings are going to do next. After many years of sleeping in his coffin, the vampire Lestat awakens only to find that the world has changed and he wants to be a part of it. Meanwhile, the scene with the band was trimmed because the filmmakers decided it didn't make much sense to dwell on them here. Mekare crawling out of the jungles after thousands of years, insane and single minded, to fufill the curse she spoke to Akasha in her court in ancient times was a major plot point.
Aimee Nash is a rising young actress and singer. After Jesse writes the note she goes out into a desert highway and hitches a ride with some friendly goths on their way to Lestat's concert. Come out, come out, wherever you are. In the book he had a long argument for Akasha. Any reader of the Vampire Chronicles knows what I mean. Anyway, my point is that a very well thought-out and seductive story was turned into a joke of a movie. After their conversation, Jesse writes a farewell note, and goes to the concert.
They turned the Vampires from sad and beautiful creatures of the night who only kill the evil-doer into blood hungry wanna-bes who eat whatever mortal wanders by. Immortality seems like a good idea, until you realize you're going to spend it alone. So I went to sleep, hoping that the sounds of the passing eras would fade out, and a sort of death might happen. . Living in the shadows, feeding in the darkness with only your own company to keep, rots into a solitary, hollow existence. They totally trivalized the debate between Akasha and her 'children'. Although the filmmakers loved every second of the footage, they knew they couldn't show much of it in the movie, again because of pacing and timing.
Maharet's twin, Mekare, isn't even in the story. However, the production team was not pleased with the prelimenary visuals created for the scene, and ultimately, decided to skip the scene altogether. It was cut as a part of the overall de-emphasis of the Ancients. In the final cut of the film, the Ancients are more in the background, and simply serve as allies of Maharet and Marius. In it, after Lestat's manager, Roger, brings him two groupies Lestat discovers garlic in Roger's coat pocket. The scene where Jesse first meets up with Maharet now plays after the concert.
In it we just see Jesse getting off the subway and then walking down a dark alley towards the Admiral's Arms. However, they regret trimming the flying sequence, as it establishes a suitably romantic mood. Footage of vampires entering the Admiral's Arms is used later in the film when Jesse returns for a second visit. Despite the fact that the filmmakers loved every second of Akasha's original dance as well as her closing words to Lestat, this scene was trimmed to heighten tension. . . .
