Dark Shadows product reviews

Director Tim Burton brings the cult classic series Dark Shadows to the big screen in a film featuring an all-star cast, led by Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter.

In the year 1750, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from England to start a new life in America, where they build a fishing empire in the coastal Maine town that comes to carry their name: Collinsport. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy... until he makes the grave mistake of falling in love with a beauty named Josette.

I am a big Johnny Depp fan and so this was a must see when it came out on DVD and eventually I grabbed a copy to own when the local video store was selling it for nice and cheap.

I knew this was based upon a TV series, but having never seen it there was nothing there for me to compare it to, so that wasn't a bad thing. The movie is about Barnabas Collins who's parents are killed, his beloved bewitched into killing herself, his family cursed and himself made a vampire by a spurned witch. Skip forward two hundred years, of which he has spent buried alive and she gaining great status in the town. What follows is Barnabas trying to regain the family name as he falls in love again and attempts to rid himself of his curse.

This is a weird and wacky movie, so if you can't handle weird and wacky, skip this. LOL Icon Everyone does a good job in this, though Victoria irks me more than anything and I could have done with someone else acting out that role. The plot isn't anything amazing or fantastic, but I found it fun and quirky, which is enough for me. Some of the special effects are quite cheesy, but that doesn't push me away from this movie, I feel it fits in well with the rest of the vibe of this movie. A fun film and one I will watch again.

Sarah is as bored and lonely as Frank and marks her conversations with the unknown Frank and her spy novels as the only things fun in her ... more...
