    A mediocre script and a wildly inconsistant tone make for a star-studded bore.

    One of the worst movies Ive ever seen. I almost walked out it was so bad. So cheesy and so over acted.

    The tone is perfect for the first thirty minutes, but then people start getting yoinked offscreen by a cane handle, and it's all downhill from there. Nice set design, costumes, and casting, though--

    How it is that this movie could be boring, I don't know, but it definitely was.

    I saw this film during its theatrical release with my Mom at the good old Hollywood Theater in Crowley. Which was very appropriate, considering she gave me my lifelong love of the wonderful, operatic horror soap opera it's based on. She used to run home after school every day to watch it, and she shared that with me by taping the syndication off the Sci-Fi Channel when it was still called that.

    As to the film itself, I was pretty…

    Here are a few considerations regarding 'Dark Shadows':

    - On one hand, the script seemed a bit gawky and messy.

    - On the other hand, the soundtrack is very enjoyable.

    - Johnny Depp was a lousy vampire. Not his best role, in fact.

    - Quite the opposite is Eva Green's role. She's one bad sexy lady, hmm...

    - The attempt by Tim Burton to mix comedy and classic horror, moreover, placing the main plot in the 70s, didn't work out…

    In the late 1700s, wealthy businessman Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) is turned into a vampire and his family cursed by a witch (Eva Green) until Barnabas learns to love her. He is buried and then unearthed in 1972 and must adjust to life in the new century while rebuilding his family name.

    I don't feel like I'm in a minority when I say that I've never seen the original Dark Shadows soap opera upon which this movie is based. Apparently…

    Based on an obscure black and white TV serial that few have ever heard of, Tim Burton's latest has it's work cut out finding an audience.

    However, teamed with his regular acting team of Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp, adding Michelle Pffeifer and Eva Green for good measure, we should be in for another Gothic treat.

    In 1776 Barnabas Collins (Depp) is an aristocratic young son of an immigrant Liverpudlian self made wealthy family, who own and manage a…
