Interview With the Vampire

Vampires suck, but so does food poisoning.

It took me two viewings to fully appreciate Neil Jordan’s look at the creatures of the night, since my first try coincided with a sudden, nasty reaction to spaghetti sauce gone bad.

And, seeing as how I was trapped at a local theater, with my ride (my mohawk-rockin’ sister) telling me to “suck it up, buttercup,” the experience remains burned into my brain two decades-plus later.

Once separated from the porcelain god, I came to appreciate the film, especially the work of Kirsten Dunst as a bloodsucker eternally trapped in a youthful body.
