Based in modern-day San Francisco, the story starts with a reporter wanting to interview a person who claims to be a vampire. The reporter, Daniel Molloy, was skeptical of the man’s claims until he displays a morsel of his supernatural skills. Louis de Pointe du Lac, coldly portrayed by the ravishing Brad Pitt, moves swiftly across the room in an inhumane manner to prove Daniel of his unique presence in this modern world.

Louis narrates his vampire origin story to Daniel. Set in 1791, when Louis was a young plantation owner out of Louisiana. However, he lost the will to live after the death of his wife and infant. Wandering aimlessly into the forest drunk, accompanied by a harlot, he crosses paths with a vampire named Lestat de Lioncourt, played by none other than Tom Cruise. Lestat kills the woman and starts feeding on Louis; however, he doesn’t kill him, rather he turns Louis into a newborn vampire.

On the other hand, Lestat is hell-bent on twisting Louis’s integrity, enticing him into feasting humans. However, Louis refrains from giving in to his craving.
