#TBT Anne Rice's: Interview of the Vampire

images Zombies weren't  always the hottest commodity on screen.  Hollywood has always been fascinated with vampires dating all the way back to Bela Lugosi as Dracula and Anne Rice, known as the "Queen of American Gothic Fiction",  hit pay dirt when her Interview with the Vampire novel was picked up and directed by Frankenstein helmer Kenneth Branagh.   It starred Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and a very young Kirsten Dunst (who was nominated for a Best Supporting Golden Globe Award).


If you want to get your vampire fix on nowadays, you can always click on the telly and tune into The Vampire Diaries (CW) or True Blood (HBO).  Until then, take a look back with Anne Rice, Kenneth Branagh and Interview with the Vampire:  The Vampire Chronicles.

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of UBNRAdio.com, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
