Rating: 2/5 -- Aaliyah makes a brief but memorable posthumous appearance about an hour into the nearly incoherent proceedings, which are riddled with unintentional guffaws. Full Review

...Directed with Goth pizazz and brains by Michael Rymer....The widescreen production shows affection for the genre...

Aaliyah is gorgeous, but that doesn't save the film's tedious pacing, and cheesy atmosphere in the end. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Sums up all that's wrong with contemporary cinema: unsubtle to the point of obviousness, it reeks of MTV and relies on volume to get its point across. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- The film is vampire roadkill.
Rolling Stone

The result is a film that's as camp as Butlins but nowhere near as much fun and full of awful performances and silly dialogue Full Review

...[Aaliyah is] genuinely appealing as the Vamp queen....The action receives an excitement injection every time she appears...

Product Description:

A deep, dark, stylistic adaptation of the book by Anne Rice from her hugely popular series of vampire novels, THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED is like a Nine Inch Nails rock video. Undernourished goth club kids are the focus of the film and they all look great with piercings, net t-shirts, tattoos, dyed hair, and dour facial expressions. The film follows the celebrity rock star Vampire Lestat (Stuart Townsend), who has emerged from 200 years of solitude to show his face--and his vampire powers--to the world. He has assembled a goth band, makes regular media appearances, and has enchanted the world with his otherworldly mystique. In addition, he has planned one of the most controversial publicity stunts of all eternity: he is holding a one-night rock concert in California's Death Valley, inviting all vampires young and old (along with his extensive fan-base of mortals) to join him. As a side bar to this activity, the mortal Jesse, a young woman who works for the Talamasca society studying paranormal occurrences, has found a secret portal to the vampire world: a London pub where vamps hang out. There she meets Lestat and is instantly smitten with him, insisting on travelling to Death Valley to see his concert. Also en route to the show is the sleek and sexy Egyptian mother of all vampires Queen Akasha (Aaliyah), who has recently arisen from a 2,000-year nap in order to unleash hell on earth. From a distance, a wise band of vampires watch telepathically as Akasha, Lestat, and Jesse converge in Death Valley. But what nobody knows is that the headstrong Lestat, who is the most impulsive and irresponsible of immortal beings but practically a god in the eyes of mortals, is the only one who can defeat Akasha and save the world.
