Masters Of Horror! (Anne Rice)

Another mistress of horror.

Now this'll be a damned quickie.

Interview With The Vampire (1994)

See here.

Queen Of The Damned (2002)

See here, and here.

She pimped it when it was new, now she says they mutilated the book, and washes her hands of it.

Well, she also rallied against Tom Cruise in "Interview", then, she said she ate crow, that his performance was great, now she's back to saying he was all wrong.

And, she's been Catholic, atheist, Catholic, and now some kind of wishy-washy agnostic.

Hey, lady, pick a side of the fence, and stay on it, wouldja?
You're makin' me seasick with this bullshit.

So, anyhoo, it's been these two, and "Exit To Eden", and "Feast Of All Saints".
That's it.

She's like Clive Barker, Hollywood's never adapted her right, not really, the real Anne Rice experience is in the books.

And the ones to read are the first 3 Vampire Chronicles, the first 3 Mayfair Witches, The Mummy, and Servant Of The Bones.

Nowadays, she's writing some bullshit Jesus prequels.
No joke there.
Jesus prequels.
*Head shake*

Well, doesn't matter, nothing can take away how good those other ones are.
Masterpieces of the genre.

Tomorrow, back to individual ones starting with Lloyd Kaufman.
