What do you think? Are you a fan of The Vampire Chronicles? Will you watch the new TV show?
it’s not on a premium cable channel, so i fear it will be too antiseptic. it needs to be as sexy and gritty and bloody as the movie. it could also become a show about man on man love. while there is lots of that in the books, i doubt many are ready for something like that being so frontstage.
i will likely give it a chance, but it could just be a horrorshow, and not in a good way.
The Vampire chronicles based on the life of Lestat, Fabulous!!! Can’t wait. A real vampire show like Interview with a Vampire.
