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

" The Ups: Beautiful recreation of the 1970s. Eva Green always deliciously sexy (and typecast) as witch. Beautiful sets. Excellent soundtrack. In tune with some of the soap operatic elements of the original TV series. The Downs: Too much cheap humor that is not even funny. A lot of the ensemble is wasted as the cast has nothing to do as the movie turns out to become another star vehicle for Johnny Depp. I love Alice Cooper but there is no reason for him showing up in this movie and singing a fe"
