Anne Rice: TV/Movies Based on Books

The Feast of All Saints was made into a miniseries for Showtime in 2001. The adaptation starred James Earl Jones, Eartha Kitt, Pam Grier, and Gloria Reuben.

Interview with the Vampire was adapted into a television series in 2022 by the AMC Network. The show was created by Rolin Jones and features Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt, Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy, and Bailey Bass as Claudia. The series was well received by cirtics and was quickly renewed for a second season.

Lives of the Mayfair Witches was also adapted by the AMC Network for premiere in 2023. The new series is written and executive produced by Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford. The case of the show features Alexandra Daddario as Rowan Mayfair, Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair, Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve, and Jack Huston as Lasher.

The two series of books do share a universe so Anne Rice finds it fitting that they should be under the same roof at a network to possibly explore down the road.

Interview with the Vampire was adapted into a film in 1994 by director Neil Jordan. The movie had an all-star cast with Tom Cruise as Lestat, Brad Pitt as Louis, and a young Kirsten Dunst as Claudia. Dunst was considered a breakout star for the film and earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The film also received Academy Award nominations for Best Art Direction and Best Original Score. It was considered a box office success.

Queen of the Damned was adapted into a film in 2002. However, Tom Cruise did not return in the role of Lestat. The film instead starred Stuart Townsend as Lestat and Aaliyah as Akasha. The movie was not much of a success and Anne Rice was unhappy with the film stating that she believed they mutilated her work.

The Young Messiah is a 2016 film based on Rice's novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.

    Of all the novels on this book list The Vampire Chronicles have been my favorite Anne Rice novels.

    Once I read the origin story of Vampires that begins in ancient Egypt, I was hooked. I have since read the rest of the series and found them very enjoyable. What I like about Rice and her series is that she takes an empathetic view in the treatment of dysfunctional vampires rather than portraying them as all evil.

    The Vampire Chronicles follow the life and times of Lestat de Lioncourt who was once a French nobleman that during the 18th century had been turned into a vampire.

    Apart from the novels I also loved the blockbuster Interview with the Vampire film adaptation that starred popular Hollywood names including Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas and Tom Cruise. The Queen of the Damned that starred Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend was not as great but it was still watchable.

    During my vampire diaries phase, my friends kept pushing me to read ‘Interview with the Vampire,’ an idea I scoffed at because the novel was published in 1976, and vampires had come a very long way.

    Anne Rice was a new name to me, and I quickly placed her in the same category as all the other older, stuffier horror writers my friends loved. But you know what?

    I was completely wrong. I read ‘Interview with the Vampire’ because someone bought it for me, and it would have been a waste of money to ignore the book. Louis and Lestat have a surprisingly modern sheen.

    Someone told me that Anne Rice kickstarted the current wave of sexy, misunderstood vampires. I don’t know if that is true, but I believe it, and I cannot wait to explore her bibliography.
