    I still can't come to terms with how much I love this film.

    It's a Tim Burton movie with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, what more is there to say?
    Barnabas Collins is a mix between Sweeney Todd and Victor van Dort (Corpse Bride).
    The movie is light and slightly funny but really not worth watching.
    Chloe Grace Moretz is super cute <3

    Green almost makes it work. Depp is mostly fine as well. The problems begin and end with Burton. Forever sigh-induced by the sight of this film.

    A surprisingly watchable film from creatively stunted goth bastard Tim Burton.

    I do not like Tim Burton films. I did not expect to like this film. I did not like it. One star because I like '70s music, one star because I like JLM and Eva Green. I wish Tim Burton would stop making films.

    Besides the predictable plot, the colors in this film are so retro, haunting, and beautiful.

    Today I watched Tim Burton's movie "Dark Shadows". I've been entertained. It is funny and good. Still, it's not great, it's just good. Nothing special,really.

    To be honest, I don't get all the hate this gets. Like at all.

    I love Tim Burton's style of comedy and so I dug the hell out of this movie's style finding it very refreshing and reminiscent of his more classical style, feeling a lot like "Beetlejuice" in a lot of aspects. Deviating from the source material in tone can bother some but I take it as it is: a fun homage to the show while also a spoof…

    Some funny moments but all in all, quite strained. Straining to fill it's running time. Perhaps it would have helped a bit if I was familiar with the tv series it was based on, but ultimately, it felt like the film was masquerading its emptiness with parody. The usual flimsy dialogue and mediocre acting for a Burton film however this time, even the stylised visuals and set design just barely kept my interest throughout.

    There are a lot of negative reviews for this film but I actually enjoyed it. Me finding it entertaining wins over the films' obvious flaws.
    Johnny Depp's performance is nothing you haven't seen before in things such as the Pirate movies so if you liked him in those, you'll probably like this movie as well. If you're a Tim Burton fan, well you'll need to form your own opinion on this one.
