Bottom Line:


They always said the din of rock ‘n’ roll can wake the dead. Well looks they were right. At least in the case of "Queen Of The Damn," the eerie vampire film starring the late R&B singer Aaliyah who died in an airplane crash last summer.

Aaliyah’s character, Queen Akasha is awakened from her sleep by the music of rock ‘n’ roller vampire Lestat (Stuart Townsend) who was originally played by Tom Cruise in the 1994 thriller "Interview With A Vampire."

Lestat has reinvented himself as a rock star and tells the media he’s a vampire. Of course the press thinks it’s just a shtick, but other vampires think he must be silenced.

The film is eerie because of Aaliyah’s character's obsession with death and the numerous flying sequences in the film. Aaliyah fans may be disappointed, however, because the late singer doesn’t appear until 50 minutes into the film and her final performance is anything but special given her ridiculous Transylvanian accent.

In the end, "Queen Of The Damn" is just a run-of-the-mill music video with vampires that sucks so severely — it blows big time.
