What it's about

Louis de Pointe's epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality, as told to the journalist Daniel Molloy. Chafing at the limitations of life as a black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat De Lioncourt's offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion.

The take

Interview with the Vampire is a remarkable remake that takes place in 1910s New Orleans. It centers on Louis (Jacob Anderson), a wealthy Black man who is turned into a vampire by his lover Lestat (Sam Reid). The series is a sprawling gothic tale that explores the relationship between Louis and Lestat, as well as the politics of race and the ethics of being undead. In other words, it's a lofty love story with some bite to it. Watch if you're a fan of the lore, action, and melodrama that comes with addictively ambitious vampire stories such as this.
