* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Santiago, courtesy of a scythe-wielding Louis.

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Santiago, [[spoiler: Santiago]], courtesy of a scythe-wielding Louis.Louis.
* HomoeroticSubtext: May as well be Homoerotic Subtext: TheMovie. Lestat and Louis raise a kid together (whom Lestat turned to [[TheBabyTrap try and keep Louis with him]]), bicker LikeAnOldMarriedCouple and just generally come across as being [[HoYay very intimate with each other beyond friendship]]. And this is only really scratching the surface. The novel is even more explicit about this, such as having Lestat and Louis share a coffin.

* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: See below. Lestat seems think that making Claudia a vampire will result in them all being "one happy family". It works for a bit, before being brutally deconstructed.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Claudia.

to:

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Claudia. This applies to all vampires in general because of the 'never aging past the point you were turned' thing, though Claudia is the most extreme example, still resembling a little girl despite being close to a hundred towards the end of the film.

The movie's framing story centers on a newspaper reporter named Daniel Molloy (Slater), interviewing a man named Louis (Pitt) who claims to be a vampire. Molloy is [[AgentScully unconvinced]] of Louis's claim until his subject displays feats of inhuman speed. He agrees to interview Louis, who then relates his previous life as a New Orleans aristocrat, and subsequent unlife as a vampire, turned by Lestat (Cruise).

* AssholeVictim:
** The French vampires.
** The pimp at the beginning who tried to mug Louis.
** Lestat (though in the end he's more sympathetic).



* BreaktheHaughty: Lestat by the end...only for it be subverted at the last moment.



* DeathSeeker: Louis seems to be this at the start of the film, outright stating that he'd "be happy to join" his dead wife and child and even opening his shirt to make shooting him easier when a man threatens him with a pistol.



* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Louis and Armand.



* IHateYouVampireDad: Louis has... mixed feelings towards Lestat, both loving him for giving him the "Dark Gift" and essentially saving him from despair and death, and hating him for condemning him to an un-life of sterility.

Claudia takes this UpToEleven towards Lestat, though she states that, despite also holding Louis responsible for her condition, she cannot bring herself to hate him.

* LostLenore: Louis's wife and infant child, whose off-screen deaths triggered his downward spiral into depression. Eventually, [[spoiler: Claudia]] becomes this for him too.

* RuleOfSymbolism

to:

* RuleOfSymbolismRuleOfSymbolism: When Louis discovers cinema and is cherishing the ability to see colours and daytime again, there's a shot from Film/{{Superman}}. While colour film had been around long before it was made, it does provide a contrast for Louis, as Superman is a fantastical being that is a friend to the masses rather than a predator and gains power from the sun instead of being killed by it. Just as vampires are envied by mortals for their ability to stay young and cheat death, we see that vampires have their own personal envies.
