This is the new David Tennant film, that I saw previewing last night (Sunday). It was nice to see David Tennant but I did not like the film. Not recommended!

Instead, if you are after a Vampire movie, I am going to recommend Let Me In, which was one of my favourite films of last year. Let Me In was the US remake of Let the Right One In.

Follow the links to find out more about the film:

I missed the Emperor Julian mention in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and I've read all her books, (not just The Chronicles), many times. Although that's probably because I'd never heard of him until this year. Which one is it in?

There is Claudia of course. Did you know she was based on Anne Rice's daughter Michelle who died in the early 1970's age 6 years.

It's a brief reference, but Julian is mentioned in Blood and Gold, which is the story of Marius de Romanus. As a vampire made in Roman times, Marius 'lives' through the advent of Christianity and observes the process of assimilation and fighting between religious factions objectively. It's interesting backgound.

The character of Claudia always made me uneasy – not least because that is my own daughter's name! I didn't know that Anne Rice had lost a young child. That explains a lot – as it does with Mary Shelley's losses influencing her story, Frankenstein.
