A sensuous, contemporary reinvention of Anne Rice’s revolutionary gothic novel, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson), Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid), and Claudia’s (Bailey Bass) epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Chafing at the limitations of life as a Black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat de Lioncourt’s offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion. But Louis’s intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat’s newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, soon sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement.
Episode 6, titled “Like Angels Put in Hell by God,” premieres Sunday, November 6 at 10pm ET/9c on AMC.
Who made you His name was Magnus He took me from my room in Paris as I Kicked and screamed He kept me for a week looked in a room Full of corpses Some freshly killed his imploded in Black But they all look like me My coloring my physique My own eyes Staring back at me from rotting faces He fed on me every night And then he put me back in the tower With the look-alike corpses I thought For sure I'd be one of them but instead He turned me into this No Grand history of vampiric origins or Physiology no rules No counsel Just a sweeping hand to a pile of money On the side of him throwing himself into A fire And then I was alone I thought I can't drink hot blood I can't feed on others I cried I called to God I didn't want this But I have a capacity for enduring That's why I don't particularly like Being a band [Music]
