A structural and tonal mess

"Two centuries ago, I made Collinwood my home... until a jealous witch cursed me, condemning me to the shadows, for all time."

Dark Shadows is one strange flick. It's Burton-esque in the truest sense, yet it's a far cry from the genius usually associated with this descriptor. The eighth collaboration of director Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp, Dark Shadows is an utter mess; narrati... read more

Visually great but a corny & empty disappointment.

Well, here we are again as the eccentric film director Tim Burton works alongside close friend Johnny Depp for the 8th consecutive time. Yet, we were in for a special treat in 2012 seeing as Dark Shadows is a vampire film and with Burton as director and Depp in the leading role, it could have turned out a dream come true! However, upon the release of the official theatrical trailer, it became almo... read more

A good movie

I didn't really know what to expect from this flick before watching it. I mean, I have never seen the TV show it is based on and, frankly, even though I have seen every single movie directed by Tim Burton, it has been a while that he did really blow me away. Furthermore, the (terribly misleading) trailer gave me the feeling that it would be a straight comedy reminiscent of 'The Addams Familly' whi... read more

"Classic Tim Burton tale full of whimsy and absurdity about a vampire named Barnabas Collins who is dug up in 1972, after spending nearly 200 years underground because of the actions of a vengeful would-be lover (and witch) named Angelique. Barnabas has to learn to deal with "modern" seventies life and risks loving a young woman named "Victoria", much to the growing rage of Angelique, now two-times spurned. Saw Friday, March 21st, 2014 "

" How much fun I had watching this one and who would have imagine I will in a vampire movie? in addition, Eva Green nailed that here! "


filmbuilder posted a review 1 month, 1 week ago

Certainly worth seeing

“I watched it at the cinema because there was Johnny Depp in it and I heard it was scary (I love most horror movies), it was certainly scary and a brilliant horror movie, Tim Burton is a master director, I’ve seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice In Wonderland, all fantastic family films! This is one fantastic horror movies for high school students and adults, certainly worth seeing

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2014 (210 movies items)

"20.2 Burton on syvällä siellä itsessään, ellei kohtapuoliin käy tekemään uusia elokuvia. Tällä meinaan sitä, että lähes poikkeuksetta viimeisen kymmenen vuoden elokuvissa on Depp pomppinut maskit ja meikit päällä milloin missäkin lavasteissa. Sleepy Hollowin jälkeen Big Fish taitaa olla ainoa hyvä tuote TB:n hihnalta."

" Johnny as Barnabas Collins and Helena as Dr. Julia Hoffman Their fifth and final (to this day) collaboration with Tim Burton as director. Johnny's character in this film ends up killing Helena's. A very recurring trait in all of Burton's films thus far."
