Johnny Depp once again takes a role where he allows the make up and prosthetics to do the acting for him...

The nadir of Burton's career and is likely going to be his biggest flop, a film that's not a comedy, not a drama, not a horror film, and not a fantasy.

The only reason to see Dark Shadows is to discover how dire and pointless-how flat-out dreadful-a movie can be even when it has Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Helena Bonham Carter attached to its flimsy pretext.

There's more than enough here for us older folks - and some younger ones, too - to have us exclaiming, Fangs for the memories.

Burton really needed to lean his horror-comedy more toward horror. Instead, it's reminiscent at times of Love at First Bite and the feature film remakes of The Addams Family and The Brady Bunch.

It turns into a bit of a mess towards the finish line, but at least it's a fun mess, and if you're looking to Tim Burton for narrative tidiness you must be thinking of another Tim Burton.

Dark Shadows should have been a return-to-form for director Tim Burton, but with a bloated budget and way too much room to play, Burton delivers yet another wasted effort.

Made for an audience of no one, Dark Shadows is a mess of campy horror, "fish out of coffin" comedy, and gothic melodrama.

Not a colossal failure but an indicator that Burton and Depp could stand to step outside their collective me + you = cinematic magic mindsets.

...following Graeme-Smith's lead, Burton has made, quite possibly, the worst film of his 30-year career.

Shotgun Critic

Dark Shadows is never short on stunning backdrops and impressive cinematographic techniques. It looks a treat. But with Dark Shadows, like Depp himself, you can only put so much make-up on an ageing face and sell it as fresh.

Movie Metropolis

It's just sort of a star vehicle for Johnny Depp, with everyone and everything else a secondary consideration at best.

It had so much potential, but given the result, it should have stayed in the shadows.

Dark Shadows really is just a mixed bag of chuckles and drama that never really gets the balance quite right.

While "Dark Shadows" has many wonderful elements, it is set up to become a new franchise for Warner Bros, but it just doesn't quite have that eternal bite.

Captures the grand sweep and often ridiculous theatricality of both soap operas and gothic romance.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

There's much more bloody potential here for dark comedy (and shaded emotions) than we're lightly spattered with . . . offers no zany flourishes, dashing touches or striking shots.

Dark Shadows makes almost no attempt to reward cinema audiences.

July 6, 2012

In yet another over-designed cinematic letdown, director Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland; Sweeney Todd) weaves a choppy comic tale of resurrected ghouls set in the early 1970s.

Burton can still deliver a great visual hook and whimsical comedy. But he seems caught between his new laziness and his old genuine excitement about filmmaking.
