    Carrie RickeyPhiladelphia Inquirer

    At its best, Queen is campy fun like the Vincent Price horror classics of the '60s. At its worst, it implodes in a series of very bad special effects. show more

    Knows that it's junk and tries feebly to rejoice in its junkiness.

    Aaliyah rules as the undead Queen of the Damned, even if she has scarcely half an hour of screen time in this campy Anne Rice vampire tale. show more
