At the beginning of the movie, Lestat briefly follows Louis around before turning him into a vampire. Also at the beginning, Louis mentions he was stalking the interviewer.

spoiler -

when claudia realizes she will never age, she screams and pushes lestat and slashes his face with a knife (though it heals in the same scene). when claudia turns into a vampire, louis tries to stop lestat from bringing in a servant but lestat pushes him across the room into a chair.

I don't know where to put this... Tom Cruise works some weird vampire magic bullshit on a woman to make her compliant so he can drink her blood and kill her in the process, while she seems to even enjoy it in a sexual way. Her inability to defend herself makes this scene super uncomfortable to watch. It's like he drugs her.

Several times throughout the movie, rats are shown to be spliced open and their blood drank from, as well as rat carcasses lying around everywhere. It's also briefly mentioned after Lestat returns from the swamp that he drank the blood of a couple of alligators.

It's neither permanent nor longer than a day or so, but the scene when it happens is extremely intense and drawn out. The uncaring glee of the people doing the burying, the dramatic terror of the person being buried, the urgency of being helpless to prevent something awful from happening somewhere else, the implication that they might be trapped there for centuries, etc

This is a bit mixed. Spoiler: there is a child character who is turned into a vampire, so as she ages mentally, she still appears to be a child. In the book, it is much more explicit that she and the protagonist Louis simultaneously have a father-child relationship and a romantic and sexual relationship. The father-child dynamic is the bigger focus in the movie, but it's not without some of the romantic elements from the book.

No N words. Louis is a plantation owner and it’s portrayed as if he’s a good one? When that’s not really possible when owning other people. That makes me personally uncomfortable so I thought I’d mention.
