Format: DVD
Dark Shadows is a typical Burton's film. It comes across as quirky, surreal, gothic and richly entertaining. I enjoyed the film. Johnny Depp proves how versatile he is as an actor. He plays the role of a vampire really well. I love the make -up and the costumes of the characters. The setting sets the tone of the film really well. The characters are interesting and eccentric.

The plot initially starts three centuries ago. The opening sequence shows a young Barnabas and his parents leaving Liverpool for a new life in an American fishing town. The family build a huge mansion. Barnabas becomes a businessmen and a servant played by Eva Green falls for him. She is later rejected and takes revenge by killing the parents. She is a witch. Barnabas returns alive in the 70s. Why going back to the 70s? The TV series is based on the 70s and was never shown in the UK. It is available on DVD, but only sold in the States if you are interested to watch the original TV series. The mansion is passed on to a new generation, who are dysfunctional and strange. Barnabas is a vampire and even the past haunts him, as you are about to discover. The film is filled with plenty of comedy moments and a few glory bloodshot moments. It has a good cast, as Michelle Pfeiffer and Helen Bonham compliment the main characters well with their roles.

Dark Shadows is classed as a comedy film. It is a bit like the Adams family, as it is gothic and vampire influenced. I admit it is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. It is entertaining and worth seeing if you like to have a good laugh, but I would not say it is totally light hearted. The term light hearted is a bit of an understatement, as there are some sickening moments in the film. I enjoyed the film as a whole. I love the 70s nostalgic to the film. The good old days of the decade are relieved with some classic tunes.

Format: Blu-ray
The film received mixed reviews, for me, this is 'Johnny Depp' at his deliciously wicked best.
His family arrived in America many years ago, and built a fine fishing business calling the town -'Collinsport' along with a splendid mansion.
'Barnabas' who finishes an affair with one of the house servants has picked the wrong lady to mess with.............she's a 'witch'
she places a curse on the 'Collins' family killing the parents and condemning 'Barnabas' with a life as a 'vampire'
Unable to win him back she has him buried in a coffin secured by chains......................'196' years later a group of workmen uncover the coffin and cut the chains, 'Barnabas' is freed.
It's a strange world, '1972' so much has changed, he returns to the family home to find it run down, however the home is still occupied by the 'Collins' descendants, who are some what dysfunctional.
'Barnabas' discovers the business is now run by .............and yes,'the witch 'Angelique' (Eva Green) that had condemned him nearly 200 years ago................well 'mayhem' is about to break out as 'Barnabas' sets out to re-build that which the family had lost.
'Angelique' has other ideas.
Among the cast members also on-board - 'Michelle Pfeiffer' (Elizabeth Collins Stoddard) 'Helen Bonham Carter' (Dr Julia Hoffman) 'Chloe Grace Moretz' (Carolyn Stoddard) 'Christopher Lee' (Clarney) and 'Alice Cooper' (as himself) among

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 July 2013
Format: DVD
They assembled an all-star cast for this film. They included "dark" favorites such as Alice Cooper and Christopher Lee. Character actors like Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. Toss in Chloë Grace Moretz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and a great soundtrack and you would think you would have a great film, right? They forgot to hire a writer.

The film opens with a long narration to give us the 196 year old background, then shifts to 1972. Some of the humor involves the typical 200 year old man stuff coming into a strange era. It also had the immature "balls" humor. The dialogue was bad. It managed to be campy without being funny. The advantage of bringing the series to the big screen would be the use of great special effects limited by a stage. This was underutilized.

This movie was classless. None of these women could hold a candle to Lara Parker. And if you are going to give 1972 as the year the movie takes place, why would you play music that wasn't released until 1978? I thought Chloë Grace Moretz did great in her role. Gulliver McGrath as David was also fairly decent. The writing, editing and directing killed this film. Wait for the rental.

No f-bombs or nudity. Weird sex scene.

There are plenty of reviews of this film and I see little point repeating at length what has already been said. Suffice to say that (on our disc anyway) the voices are often so quiet that we had to keep turning up the volume, in other places their voices were drowned out by the backing track - I am told this is a (misguided) 'new' trend. That alone ruined it for us. The jokes were generally weak. Even the finale was reminiscent of Death Becomes Her - which did a much better job of it. Tim Burton, in our humble opinion, should have done so much more with the incredible talent he had at his disposal.

I had forgotten that Johnny Depp can also be a serious actor - & here he plays the part of an English aristocrat settler in 1700s America - perfectly: having been turned into a vampire by an insanely jealous witch, he awakes 200 years later in 1970's America. To find a strange world, where the inevitable culture clash between the 2 eras is fertile ground for lots of laughs. And with background music of 1970s pop songs, it really is most enjoyable. Special effects - yes & quite well done, horror - not really, more on a par with Addams Family Values. OK, the plot is a bit simple, but you walk out of the cinema with a smile & not feeling as if you've wasted your money. Would buy the DVD provided it's well below a fiver.
