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.

One of those rare occurrences where Tim Burton doesn't quite hit the spot. It's visually very much a typical Burton film with some lovely and dark cinematography as you'd expect with many of the usual faces and typically quirky characters, but it's not his best effort, it isn't really quite funny enough to be the spoof vampire film I think it's suppose to be and it was all a bit predictable with only OK performances, rather than great performances.

Maybe younger viewers would enjoy it more, but other Burton films which are maybe aimed more towards younger views are usually still equally enjoyable on an adult level also. Still, I'd probably watch it again at some point in the future.

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.

I wasn't planning on writing a review but when I saw how the movie review on amazon averaged out as 3.4 I had to step in and help ^_^

This movie is entertaining start to finish, it doesn't have a slow start (unlike other movies, I am sure we can all think of a few that do) it starts of with how Barnabas Collins turned in to a vampire and how he woke up buried alive two centuries later, very behind time.

What made me laugh was how old fashionably he acted towards everyone and Johnny Depp's acting was spot on!

No other actor could have portrayed the character in a more funny way than he did. So this is a must buy.

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, I wouldn't think twice.

Whilst once Tim Burton was a magical director who films you could not miss, he has now gone past off the boil and into tepid to the touch. ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Planet of the Apes’ are two particularly unwatchable films from his past. ‘Dark Shadows’ does not quite fall to these depths, but is not far off. Based on a cult TV show that not many people in the UK will know, it follows the exploits of the Collins family and in particular Barnabas – who happens to be a vampire. He is awakened in the 1970s and must try and reverse his family’s fortunes.

Like a drunk at a bar, ‘Dark Shadows’ falls between stools. Is it a horror, comedy, family saga? It is all of these things, but also none of them. If you had to pigeonhole it with a genre, it would be – messy. The best elements are certainly the humorous ones; Eva Green is great as a vampish witch and hams up the screen nicely. However, the horrific elements seem poorly judged. We are meant to feel sympathy to Barnabas, but he kills indiscriminately on more than one occasion during the film. What could have had some family friendly credentials are thrown out for apparently no reason.

The worst elements of the film are the editing and story. It feels almost directionless at times blundering around with nothing happening and then something from leftfield just popping up. The film has more than a faint whiff of ‘The Addams Family’ about it, but whilst that film has lurched into cinema history glory, ‘Dark Shadows’ is just another nail in Burton’s once great career coffin.

With all the special effects on offer trying to distract you from the nonsensical plot, Blu-ray is the way to go. There are plenty of behind the scenes extras for anyone who wants to know more about how the film was seemingly thrown together.
