“In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better…”

  2. It was one of the the worst Burton I’ve seen. The original show is far more interesting than this not so funny movie full of misuses actors and with a so boring story.

    1. I have to agree. I was a fan of the original show (the reruns…wasn’t around back then….lol), and I was a fan of the Dark Shadows:Revival series that came out in 1991. I was disappointed in this movie. Too campy. You would think that it would be good, considering the fact that it was written by Seth Grahame-Smith, the same brilliant man who wrote Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (one of my favorite books), and Tim Burton and Johnny Depp…you would think they could do better. I mean they Sleepy Hollow, that was pretty scary and the material was taken seriously.
