The Queen of the Damned
The Queen of the Damned is an Australian-American film released in 2002, based on the third novel of Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles series with the same title, The Queen of the Damned. It has also many plot elements from The Vampire Lestat and is said to be a critical failure.
Many of us loved it, many others hated it. Hardcore fans have a say on this so I'm just speaking as a person who liked the movie for what it is. However, the author of the novels was never too pleased with it:
The Film "Queen of the Damned" was seen to be a critical failure, and disappointed some viewers. Rice herself has dismissed the film. On her Facebook page, any time the subject is brought up, she repeatedly comments that The Queen of the Damned film is not something she can understand or embrace, that she encouraged them not to do the film and that it hurt her to see her work "mutilated" the way it was. -Source
I still love the film nowadays and enjoy it a lot, even though it looks evidently dated. But if you are like me and have always liked it, don't forget to show your love by joining the fanlisting!
According to TFL.org: "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are), they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans."
Why The Queen of the Damned?
This is one of the movies I've watched most in my teenage years with my older sister. We used to watch it a lot, listen to the amazing OST and dream of vampires haha! My sister is a Vampire Chronicles fan while I haven't read the books, which I should do sometime. But this is a movie I still keep fond memories of and so I thought of giving it a fanlisting!
Site & layout
You are currently viewing version 1 of this fanlisting. I thought I didn't want it to be too dark and dull, so I just slapped a texture with lots of colours and worked from there... and here it is! I had a bad layout block before this so I'm sorry if it doesn't meet your expectations xD But I like it.
