While in the course of time, another has arisen, Akasha (Aaliyah), the Queen of the Vampires and the Dammed. He wants immortal fame, his fellow vampires want him eternally dead for his betrayal, and the Queen wants him for her King. Who will be the first to reach him? Who shall win?

Looks luscious but feels as though a whole lot of story got lost between the page and the screen.

Rymer... doesn't conjure proper respect for followers of the whole dead-undead genre, who deserve more from a vampire pic than a few shrieky special effects.

Unsubtle to the point of obviousness, it reeks of MTV and relies on volume to get its point across.

My heart went out to the excellent Paul McGann, who has to play a occult researcher looking permanently appalled at what is happening. As well he might.

When Queen of the Damned knows it's ridiculous, it's moderately entertaining fun; when it tries to be serious, it's truly ridiculous.

Directed with goth pizzazz and brains by Michael Rymer.

It isn't great entertainment or camp, but... sets its ambitions so low, it can't help partially delivering on them.

Queen of the Damned is not a good film, but it's definitely a watchable one.

(Rymer) has enough conviction to make what could have been very silly strangely provocative.

Self-serious, pointless and silly.

Devoid of even MTV-calibre originality.
