Queen of the Damned is a 2002 vampire horror film and a loose adaptation of the third novel of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles series, The Queen of the Damned, although the film contains many plot elements from the latter novel’s predecessor, The Vampire Lestat. It stars Aaliyah as the vampire queen Akasha, and Stuart Townsend as the vampire Lestat. Queen of the Damned was released six months after Aaliyah’s death and is dedicated to her memory. In addition to the film clip Out and About NYC Magazine presents a behind the scene video and a deleted scene.
Behind the scenes look at Aaliyah in Queen of the Damned and blooper outtakes.
Additional scene 10. Despite the fact that the filmmakers loved every second of Akasha’s original dance as well as her closing words to Lestat, this scene was trimmed to heighten tension.
