Synopsis: This adaptation of Anne Rice's best-selling novel continues the exploits of the vampire Lestat, last seen on screen in 1994's Interview With the Vampire. Stuart Townsend replaces Tom Cruise as the lethal Lestat, this time becoming a modern rock star whose music awakens the all-powerful queen vampire Akasha (Aaliyah). To withstand her malevolence, all of the other immortal vampires must band together against her. While Akasha pines for Lestat to become her king, a young woman with a fascination for the dark side also falls in love with him.
