DARK SHADOWS movie review

the new collaboration of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton in Warner Bros.' release of a 70's TV series adaptation, DARK SHADOWS, doesn't give much chills but instead another vampire love story. a love story with a twist of humor and even deeper intentions of family ties.
Johnny Depp plays Barnabas Collins, an heir to a great fishing company in Maine where his family had moved to start a new life. Barnabas was inevitably rich, famous and even a playboy until he broke the vulnerable heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). a witch at every angle, she doomed Barnabas, taking everything away from him, made him into a vampire and burying him alive.

as years passed, industrialization had covered Collinsport and the story of Barnabas has been believed a legend. until an unexpected thing happened raising him from the coffin and he had to endure all the changes around him. meeting his descendants, with Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) as the head of the family. as the Collins blood runs in Barnabas, so as the eccentric and the unimaginable characteristics manifest in every member of the kin.
funny circumstances await Barnabas but crossing paths with Angelique sparked major unfortunate events at Collinsport. Angelique's feelings were no match to Barnabas' will to reject her once again. with all Angelique's power, Barnabas' family is there to back him up.

minor scenes need parental advises but it's generally a family movie. as with previous Tim Burton directions with Johnny Depp, you will have a good moral and a thinking mind after weird elements.
