Brad Pitt as the Dark Brooding Louis in "Interview With The Vampire"

Interview With The Vampire is an account of Louis, a man gifted with immortality who has lived 200 years as a vampire. He recounts how he departed from human existance and became a vampire, but, reluctant to take human life, he sustained himself on the b lood of animals.

As the years pass, however, he embraces the habits of the vampire - the detachment, the hardened will, the sensual pleasure. He embarks on a perilous journey across Europe to search for others like himself, desperate to discover the ways of survival, mor e desperate to find out why he has become what he is.

At last he comes into intimicy with the whole decadent society of vampires - an intimacy which becomes terror as he is compelled to confront what he fears most.
