About the Movie

Director Tim Burton brings the cult classic series "Dark Shadows" to the big screen in a film featuring an all-star cast, led by Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Helena Bonham Carter. In the year 1750, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from England to start a new life in America, where they build a fishing empire in the coastal Maine town that comes to carry their name: Collinsport. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet...until he makes the grave mistake of falling in love with a beauty named Josette DuPres (Bella Heathcote) and breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death-turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Nearly two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972, a stranger in an even stranger time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Burton's offbeat montages are amusing, but the story's slow start and overblown conclusion make Dark Shadows half a good movie. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, May 10, 2012

Rotten: An uncertain combination of elements that unsuccessfully tries to be half-scary, half-funny and all strange... – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, May 10, 2012

Rotten: This is not so much a coherent movie as it is a long, expensive joke in search of a purpose. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, May 21, 2012

Fresh: When you consider all the pitfalls avoided, and all the laughs and pleasures it provides along the way, "Dark Shadows" is a satisfying and skillful effort. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, May 10, 2012

Visuals, music, and laughs are everything,

Maybe the movie does't have the best script, but it was very amazing. The whole tone of the movie was amazing. It was very laughable and very…. well…. whats the word…. enchanting. As a fan of the original show, I noticed this movie had almost NOTHING to do with the movie which was terrible, but as a stand alone movie is was very good. Oh and.. Bella Heathcote… was awesome!


I've been waiting freaking forever for this to be available on iTunes! It is a funny movie! It wouldn't have been complete without Johnny Depp ( Pirates of the Carribean) or Helena Bonham Carter ( Harry Potter) in it! THANK YOU ITUNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3
