WATCH: ‘Interview With A Vampire’ is finally as gay as we’ve always wanted it to be in new series

Reading now: 988

Interview With A Vampire, based on the acclaimed novel from gothic horror queen Anne Rice, which looks like it’ll finally give the story’s queer subtext a chance in the sun (er, maybe we’ll think of another metaphor there since vampires can’t survive the daylight).Rice’s tale of ageless, brooding vampires was famously brought to the big screen in 1994 with the Neil Jordan film of the same name.

With Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in the lead roles—both at peak hotness—the story of their “courtship” and undead lives together was responsible for countless sexual awakenings for queers of certain age.And while we’ll never forget the image of Cruise’s Lestat going to to town on the neck of Pitt’s Louie, the movie stopped just shy of really going there and giving the gays everything they want.Related: ‘Freddy’s Revenge’, and 10 other screamingly sexy queer Halloween horror filmsThat’s why the new Interview With A Vampire has us feeling batty: In the first-look trailer that premiered this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, the series appears to lean into the homoeroticism that’s been part of the story all along.

That little neck nibble looks like it’s about to be a full-on gay sex scene. We’re dead—and loving it.Stepping into the role of Louie is the charming Jacob Anderson, best known as Game Of Thrones‘ Grey Worm (as one commenter pointed out, he went from Unsullied to Undead).

And filling in as Lestat is Sam Reid, the kind of dashing, square-jawed antihero it’s hard not to be wooed by—without all of Cruise’s Scientology baggage.
