Synopsis of Interview with the Vampire

A vampire named Louis de Pointe du Lac tells his 200-year-long life story to a reporter referred to simply as “the boy”.

In 1791, Louis is a young indigo plantation owner living in Louisiana. Distraught by the death of his pious brother, he seeks death in any way possible.

Louis is approached by a vampire named Lestat de Lioncourt, who desires Louis’ company. Lestat turns Louis into a vampire and the two become immortal companions.

Lestat spends time feeding off slaves while Louis, who finds it morally repugnant to murder humans to survive, feeds from animals.

Louis and Lestat are forced to leave when Louis’ slaves begin to fear the monsters with which they live and instigate an uprising.

Louis sets his own plantation aflame; he and Lestat kill the slaves to keep word from spreading about vampires living in Louisiana.

Gradually, Louis bends under Lestat’s influence and begins feeding from humans.

He slowly comes to terms with his vampire nature, but also becomes increasingly repulsed by what he perceives as Lestat’s total lack of compassion for the humans he preys upon.
