A vampire relates his epic life story of love, betrayal, loneliness, and dark hunger to an over-curious reporter.
Neil Jordan’s R-rated sexy horror/drama featured major stars Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt (and young pre-teen Kirsten Dunst who kissed Pitt) in a centuries-old relationship as blood-sucking vampires – it was based on Anne Rice’s best-selling novel.
In a ceremonial theatrical ‘performance’ (that required a real human sacrifice) in the Theatre des Vampires before a live audience, Laure Marsac was featured as a Mortal Woman on Stage, who begged for her life:
Santiago: Just as this flesh is pink now, soon it will turn gray and wrinkled with age.
Woman: (weeping) Let me live. I don’t care!
Santiago: Then why should you care if you die now?
She was stripped naked by Armand (Antonio Banderas), and then he proceeded to drain blood from her neck. Then the remainder of her blood was shared by the large group of vampires after he passed her limp nude body to them. The vampires surrounded her and plunged their fangs into her prostrate nude body (from a top view).
