Screener Squad: Interview With The Vampire Season 2

Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire Season 2 Review


AMC Plus presents the Immortal Universe based on the books of Anne Rice and Interview with the Vampire is their core show (at this juncture). Heading into season 2, we last left our narrator Louis (Jacob Anderson) recounting the departure from his maker Lestat to interviewee Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian) and Louie’s new lover Armand (Assad Zaman) present. Louis, with florid prose, takes us on a narrative to the past with his forever pre-teen vampire ward Claudia (now recast with Delainey Hayles). The two vagabonds venture across war torn 40s Europe in search of other creatures of the night. They chance upon a troupe of vampires masquerading on stage as, well, vampires. Their leader Armand has a set of ironclad rules for Louis and Claudia to follow or else. Daniel pressures Louie to not just recount his time with Armand and his fang-bearing band of thespians, but to step out of his own feelings and into some semblance of warts and all truth. What became of Claudia? Why isn’t she with Louis now? What of the end of the war and this troupe of actors post Hitler’s death? What is it that Daniel can’t remember about his first interview back in the 70s with Louis? Humans tend towards romanticizing their history; does the mind of a vampire carry the same sentimental curse? Bradly, Matt, and Kim turn on their own recorders and recount their passionate love for season 1. Does the flame burn brighter in season 2, or die out like so many sophomore seasonal dramas.

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.




Kimberly Brown (Highly Suspect Reviews)

Kimberly wants to live in a world filled with blue telephone boxes, speedsters, and ice dragons but through an ironic twist of fate, she’s stuck in this reality where these wondrous things only exist on page or film. Kim’s perpetual desire to consume sci-fi and fantasy media as a teen led her to the study of illustration/design at university to better understand its creation. Currently an Austin transplant, when she’s not wearing her critic hat you can find her pretending to like hiking, fielding questions about her hair or maybe even enjoying a local brew at the nearest dive bar.
