In their latest piece for the LA Weekly Unbinged series, writer Erin Maxwell reviews the newest vampire-inspired entertainment to hit our screens this fall TV season. From the latest Interview with the Vampire (AMC) and Let The Right One In (Showtime) to Vampire Academy (Peacock), Maxwell explores whether making vampires the “it” monster of the season was the right call by networks and streaming services.
“AMC’s Interview with the Vampire might have die-hard fans on edge with its deviations from the original text, but please, do not fear,” writes Maxwell in her review. “The changes might be somewhat drastic, they are necessary to revamp the problematic vamp tale for the modern age. The adjustments also add a surprising amount of depth to both the story and its players.”
