Dark Shadows


Review: Barnabas Collins is a vampire. Two centuries after being buried he is set free. He returns to his ancestral home, Collinwood Manor to find it in ruin. His family needs his protection.
Director: Tim Burton
Actors: Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter
Year: 2012
Genre: Drama and Horror
Conclusion: 2/5
Not the best film that Johnny Depp has been in. He can do so much better. Apparently this film is based on a T.V. show that was on years ago called Dark Shadows. On some websites for the genre they have put down that it is a comedy. I couldn’t put it down for that only because I didn’t laugh once. The film is all over the place. I don’t think that Tim Burton really knew what he wanted to do with the film. I was waiting all the way through for it to get better and it didn’t. Huge disappointment. One film critic wrote “Johnny Depp once again takes a role where he allows the make up and prosthetics to do the acting for him….”.
