What are the difficulties they faced ?
The difficulties they faced were the same as any other movie. They had to deal with the atmosphere and setting of 18th century France . They also had to deal with making a movie long in length . No matter how much research they did into the location and period, they still had no idea how to best tell the story of Louis’ first years as a vampire , even though they had a script. The final product was a very artistic movie with no one speaking in real time in the film .
Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?
The antagonist is diseases. Disease had killed Louis’ wife and daughter when he was a human. Then, after Louis became a vampire , he was forced to become a stinking creature of the night with fangs and blood-red eyes who drinks the blood of humans . After that, Lestat turns Claudia into a vampire to save her from dying from Syphilis. The motives are to explore how Louis feels about being a vampire and how he deals with it but also explore how Lestat and Claudia deal with it . They overcame them by discarding them all in order to tell the story of Louis’ first years as a vampire . They did however have to deal with the problem of filming in tight quarters .

The epic scenes are when Lestat and Louis have their battle in the dark room . The scene takes place during the middle of the movie . It lasts a few minutes and is very intense . There is a lot of jump-scares throughout the film, but this one particular scene seems to be the most intense for viewers. There are many jump-scares throughout the film and they include :
Who is the most loved character ?
The most loved character is Lestat . He was most loved for his humor and style of speaking, which is very cocky and sometimes funny , but he also cares deeply for Louis when no one else does because he is a vampire.
