DANCING AKASHA from Queen of The Damned

DANCING AKASHA from Queen of The Damned

AALIYAH was the perfect AKASHA, The QUEEN OF THE DAMNED! Stuart Townsend did an awesome job of Lestat - very subtle.

More tempered than Tom Cruise's Lestat for obvious reasons - he'd been asleep for a while and was high on the new century's music and worship of DARKNESS, which he tapped into so well.

He was like a totally new person because he could finally show himself as the vampire he was as he had always wanted to do as the scene with the gypsys and violin repartee shows.

My favourite part of Queen Of The Damned is when AKASHA enters the Vampire bar and rips the heart out of a vampire and then turns them all into flaming carcasses until they all blow away into ash and she leaves the bar through a wall of flames all to Chester Bennefield's song, SYSTEM.

The only thing I DIDN'T like about this vampire movie was that they combined BOTH the Vampire Lestat AND Queen of the Damned into one film and changed some of the history, such as Lestat's origin.

I couldn't and can't understand how and why Anne Rice allowed this to happen.

But in spite of these few glitches, Queen of the Damned is still an all time favorite.
