Story Synopsis:
Remember when Tom Cruise starred as the vampire Lestat in Interview With The Vampire? Well, in

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD, when viewed in a completely blackened room, offers a deliciously dark picture with excellent shadow delineation and contrast. The dim picture complements the grim storytelling, with nicely balanced colors and deep blacks. Fleshtones can appear natural and lively, or deathly pale when necessary. There is a small amount of edge enhancement noticed at times, but very little pixelization. There is a flying sequence that is depicted when colors and light are intentionally smeared to create a motion effect, while most of the flying vampires are created with a digital trail effect.
