Elliot Goldenthal scored the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, working again with director and frequent collaborator Neil Jordan.


The score

The music is characterized by its full, dramatic sound that complements the film's gothic atmosphere. The classical style reflects the old-world setting of the film and helps to coveys the dark emotional struggles of the characters.

The rock band Guns N' Roses covered the Rolling Stones song "Sympathy for the Devil", which plays during the film's end credits. A single CD was also released by Geffen Records, featuring "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Escape to Paris" as tracks No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.

The album was nominated for the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, losing on both counts to the score of The Lion King.
