Screener Squad: Interview With The Vampire

Interview With The Vampire Series Review


It was a time before vampires adhered to a honour code and sparkled like a blood diamond that your wealthy uncle insisted was dug by a local whom was grateful for the job opportunity. It was a time when creatures of the night sang a song of sixpence and feasted upon the blood of virgins in ripped bodices. A time of a lot of horny, thirsty literature with profound drama intertwined with erotic fantasies. It was a time called “The 70s”.  Based on Anne Rice’s Iconic and groundbreaking novel Interview With The Vampire, this new adaptation has been created for AMC Plus. The story follows a very successful and ambitious man named Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson) who meets a vampire named Lestat (Sam Reid) in New Orleans in the year 1910. The two form a bond a friendship which quickly becomes sexual in nature but which violently transcends into God and creator as Louis is changed into a vampire by Lestat. For over a century Louis struggles to leave his old life behind and embrace that of being a monstrous killer. He shares his story in an interview with the renowned retired journalist Mallow (Eric Bogosian) where he reminisces about old friends, family, and flames, which are played by an electrifying ensemble that includes Assad Zaman, Bailey Bass, John DiMaggio, and Rae Dawn Chong. Bradly, Matt, and Harmony also reminisce about the 90’s film and in what ways the modern update is superior to the old Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise erotic romp, discuss the changes made for the better from the text of the book, and give a heartfelt shout out to the man, the myth, the legend: Antonio Banderas.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)

Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.



Matt Foster (Screener Squad)

Matt Foster is a stand up comic, podcaster, and movie critic currently living in the greater Salt Lake City area. His lifelong love of genre film began early, when he realized they freaked out his mom. He performs (epidemics permitting) regularly on Dungeons and Comedy, a DND live play with standup comedians, and is the slightly less mustache-y half of the Nighthawks Podcast, a cinema-centric discussion cohosted by Trevor T. Trujillo.




Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)

Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!
