- Lestat: How did you manage to slip through the 50's in red velvet? Marius: I slept. Lestat: Don't think you've missed much. Marius: Elvis? Lestat: Elvis, yes. Marius: You're bigger than he is now.
Akasha: My children. Warms my blood to see you all gathered plotting against me. Maharet: Akasha. Akasha: Maharet. You will address my king first. Jesse: Lestat, what has she done to you? Marius: Lestat, step aside. Lestat: Never. Maharet: The world has changed since you reigned. Akasha: Then we shall change it back. Human are animals. Brute creatures. Their destruction can only make sense. Marius: Akasha, please! Akasha: You think you can change my will? I've had enough of this discussion. Join me or die! Maharet: I will not. Pandora: I will not. Armand: I will not. Marius: I will not. Akasha: [to Lestat] Do you love me? Lestat: Yes. Akasha: Then prove it. Kill her. Lestat: She means nothing to me. Akasha: Just the same. I'd like for you to kill her. Maharet: You will not touch her! Akasha: You dare to challenge me, Maharet? Jesse: No it's all right, Aunt Maharet. It's what I want. Akasha: How sweet. Akasha: [after Jesse is killed] See my children? Remember your real family, or join hers.
Marius: A vampire's life is a life of discretion. Lestat: Discretion? Why should we hide, Marius? We are the powerful. We are the immortal. We should walk fearless in the open. [They both stop to watch a girl playing a violin] Marius: That cannot be. We are vulnerable during the day. Mortals must never know of us. Lestat: So I could never know her? Marius: Not unless you wanted to kill her. Lestat: So I can never be known? Marius: You must be dead to the world.
Lestat: With all my black little heart.
[first lines] Lestat: [voiceover] There comes a time for every vampire when the idea of eternity becomes momentarily unbearable. Living in the shadows, feeding in the darkness with only your own company to keep, rots into a solitary, hollow existence. Immortality seems like a good idea, until you realize you're going to spend it alone. So I went to sleep, hoping that the sounds of the passing eras would fade out, and a sort of death might happen. But as I lay there, the world didn't sound like the place I had left, but something different. [rock music begins] Lestat: Better. It became worthwhile to rise again as new gods were born and worshipped. Night and day, they were never alone. I would become one of them. [feeds] Lestat: Whether it was that first meal, or a hundred years of rest, I'm not sure. But suddenly I was feeling better than ever. My senses so high they led me straight to the instrument of my resurrection, playing in my old house.
- Tom Cruise was initially asked to return in the role of Lestat, but he declined.
Aaliyah died in a plane crash shortly after principal photography was completed. 'Michael Rymer (I)' called in Aaliyah's brother, Rashad Haughton, to help overdubbing her voice following her death.
The concert scenes are set in Death Valley, California, but were actually filmed in Werribee, Australia.
Cameo: [Jonathan Davis of Korn] the composer appears as a ticket scalper trying to peddle tickets outside the concert.
The copy of "Rolling Stone" that Marius throws down in front of Lestat actually was the issue published on the movie before it was released.
