Queen of the Damned [WS] [DVD] [2002]

The vampire thriller Queen of the Damned comes to DVD on Warner Home Video with a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Audio is offered in Dolby Digital 5.1 in English and French, with subtitles in English, French, and Spanish. There are many special features on this DVD release, including commentary with director Michael Rymer, producer Jorge Saralegui, and composer Richard Gibbs. The three music videos include the songs "Forsaken" (performed by David Draiman), "Redeemer" (performed by Marilyn Manson), and "System" (performed by Chester Bennington), as well as a music video from Static-X for "Cold." The three featurettes include interviews and behind-the-scene footage, the best of them being "Creating the Vampires," which focuses on the special effects. "The Music of Lestat" features interviews with composer Gibbs and lyricist Jonathan Davis from Korn. "Aalyiah Remembered" is a very brief tribute to the late pop star and her contributions to the film. Outtakes include 13 deleted scenes and extended concert sequences for the songs "Slept So Long" and "Not Meant for Me." In addition to cast film highlights, production stills, and a gag reel, there are enhanced features for DVD-ROM.

Synopsis

Queen of the Damned
The second and third novels in author Anne Rice's popular book series The Vampire Chronicles provide the inspiration for this horror sequel starring ill-fated actress and recording artist Aaliyah, who was killed in an airplane crash before the film's release. Stuart Townsend is the vampire Lestat, who has awakened from a century-long slumber and turned his considerable energy to rock music. His vampirism identity mistaken for a gothic hard rock publicity stunt along the lines of Kiss or Marilyn Manson, he quickly becomes a pop music sensation. Lestat's powerful music reaches the ear of the slumbering Akasha (Aaliyah), the millennia-old "queen of the vampires" who was the first immortal bloodsucker. Akasha is soon free and embarking on a quest to seize control of the world with Lestat at her side. In the meantime, Lestat becomes an object of fascination for Jesse Reeves (Marguerite Moreau), member of a secret order studying the supernatural called the Talamasca, and a band of ancient vampires come together in an effort to stop Akasha, even though her destruction could potentially cause their own deaths. Queen of the Damned co-stars Lena Olin and Vincent Perez. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
