Louis comes back to New Orleans (after years) to find a nearly mummified Lestat hiding in a graveyard. Right after the interview is broken off and the interviewer is riding off Lestat is in the back of the car; bites him and is back to his former glory instantly. A vampire drinking blood in the time Louis is in the old world would not be in this state.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
After Louis becomes a vampire, his reflection is visible in a puddle of water in the cemetery: Although in Vampire mythology it is said that a Vampire cannot see his/her reflection, it is clear that in this adaptation a Vampire can see his/her reflection (In addition to the puddle, Claudia looks in the mirror after she has cut her hair and sees her reflection)
At the beginning of the film, we see Louis in the window of the hotel. When the shot changes to the inside of the room, it is from behind Louis as he is looking out the window at the city. If you watch closely, you can see that what Louis is looking at is actually a still image rather than the actual city, as none of the cars' headlights or taillights move and none of the other lights flicker.
When the vampire Lestat first changes Louis he floats him above and drops Louis into the Mississippi. The ship beside Louis when he emerges is ironclad. The movie claims this happens in 1791, but ironclad ships did not come into use until the mid 19th century, with the famous Monitor v Merrimack marking a turning point from wood to steel in naval warfare.
