Queen of the Damned

Queen of the Damned For centuries she's waited for the right being to summon her to reign again over all her evil dominion. She is Akasha, the wickedly regal Mother of All Vampires -- and her right time and right person have come.

Aaliyah plays the title role in Queen of the Damned , a stylish infusion of vampire lore based on Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles. Stuart Townsend portrays Lestat, the undead antihero previously seen in the recent screen adaptation of Rice's Interview with a Vampire.

This time, Lestat finds acceptance in a tattooed, pierced, black-clad world. He's a rock star. And his intoxicating Goth-riffed sound snakes around the globe and rekindles the desires of all-powerful Akasha.

Together, she and Lestat can rule forever. But a growing fascination may upend that reign: Lestat's fascination with a flesh-and-blood mortal (Marguerite Moreau).
