    Finally a vampire that doesn't sparkle and has a sense of humour. Oh Barnabas! You are such a laugh! Excellent film and dark humour.

    I *quite* enjoyed it; certainly not great; pacing and balance of humour and violence somewhat off-kilter, plot basis sketchy with logic, but overall a pleasant afternoon at the movies and a thoroughly enjoyable Depp performance...

    Dark Shadows
    Dir: Tim Burton
    Starring: Johnny Depp and more

    Based on the 1966-1971 Gothic horror soap opera of the same name. Dark Shadows is another collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp in a long time. Johnny Depp plays Barnabas Collins 200-years old vampire. Film bears extraordinary visuals and it sustains characters with solid backgrounds to jump in the game. Johnny Depp sincerely takes over his role, though it may not live up to his expectations to catapult him,…

    Let's see here... Dark Shadows is based off some 70's soap opera that nobody watches anymore that Tim Burton is making into a black comedy with his usual pairings of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter? This can't be too bad right? WRONG! Dark Shadows is a despicable attempt at a major motion picture. It squanders anything bold and creative about what Tim Burton's accomplished over the years, and instead wastes his time in trying to recreate a story nobody…

    This probably benefitted from low expectations, but I thought it was pretty amusing until the overblown finale.

    So good to see this again after the disappointingly rote Big Eyes. It moves to no rhythm but its own: camp, melancholy, ridiculous, droll, morally inverted—usually all at once. Eva Green gets it.

    Tim Burton is so overrated. Except for beetlejuice, big fish and maybe edward scissorhands, the movies are always the same...

    Tim Burton's latest achievement is horror movie with comedy elements in it. It was based on the gothic soap opera of the same name that was produced for television between 1966 and 1971. As usual with Tim Burton's movies, visuals are outstanding and Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, a 200-year-old vampire who has been imprisoned in a coffin, did satisfactory job. In the same category we could have the characters of Angelique Bouchard, played by Eva Green, and Elizabeth Collins…

    A film where Tim Burton is trying too hard to be himself, Dark Shadows is a ridiculous mess that shows a talented director completely lost and disoriented in his own exuberance—he tries so hard to put the Gothic style in practice and fails so miserably that his film becomes accidentally laughable and too silly for its own good. That's even worse when we know that the man sitting in the director's chair is Tim Burton, a man who was once…

    Switching between funny jokes with cultural references and awful and already seen jokes, Dark Shadows might just be the corniest film I've ever seen with tacky dialogue, stupid ghosts, vampires, werewolves and witches played by several awful secondary actors all mixed up in a terribly gay plot. Still, I was very entertained while watching it and it's always good to know Tim Burton still has some qualities as a director although he's lost in his own style. Even though I really tried to love Dark Shadows, I knew this was not going to be as good as it could right after I read the title.
