|Plot Summary of Interview With The Vampire|
|"Reporter Daniel interviews a man who claims to be a vampire, and hears an amazing tale. Louis was a young plantation owner, turned into a vampire by the charismatic and unscrupulous Lestat. They complete their 'family' by making a child vampire, a girl called Claudia. Claudia and Louis flee from Lestat, seeking the origins of vampires in the Old World. This is a melancholy tale of lost idealism and an eternal life that turns out to be a curse for the young man on whom it has been bestowed - Louis takes little pleasure in killing, and his supernatural powers only alarm him as he finds himself becomming ever less human. "
