Dark Shadows Reviews

Page 1 of 12
Will Leitch

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.

Ben Kendrick

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

Full Review Source: ScreenRant | Original Score: 2.5/5

Adam Ross
The Aristocrat

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

Jeff Beck

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

Justin Craig

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.

Eric Eisenberg

The movie is completely tone deaf - unsure if it's a horror movie, a comedy or a drama - and never finds anything interesting in the characters for the audience to latch on to.

There's some laughs in this movie, there's some action, but halfway through this movie it just takes this weird turn, and you're like 'what happened to all the fun that I was having in this theater?'

2UE That Movie Show

Dark Shadows has some sporadic moments of fun but on the whole it's an inferior recycled mash-up of Burton's style and Depp's quirky characters from their eight collaborations.

Irish Times

"Dark Shadows has to be the most perfunctory, most self- parodic entry to the [Burton] canon thus far."

May 11, 2012

Eight movies together later and that razor sharp Depp / Burton relationship now feels less like scissorhands and more like spoonfingers.

Cameron Williams
The Popcorn Junkie

It's a million dollar soap opera and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith wrote the turd, and Tim Burton rolled it in glitter.

Matt Looker

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

Kansas City Star

A movie that heads in so many directions it's a wonder Depp didn't get whiplash.

The Ooh Tray

A mirthless monster mash that just manages to remember what it's about, a minute before the end - all concerned praying it's not too late. It is.

Sigh, and I had such high hopes.

Suburban Journals of St. Louis

The film is lifeless, which would be a funny thing to say about a vampire movie if it weren't so true.

CJ Johnson
ABC Radio (Australia)

The longer the movie plays, the more disjointed, episodic, and incoherent it becomes. It has no idea what it is.

Shaun Munro
What Culture

A half-baked auto-update of the classic series, and a suggestion that Burton's persistent style has finally worn thin.

Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane

There were only a handful of genuine laughs... and that puts it on a par with Scary Movie 3.

Ian Buckwalter
The Washingtonian

Unfortunately, Burton abandons a promisingly quirky first half approach & undermines a hugely enjoyable Depp performance with an effects-heavy, action-packed second half that's neither funny nor thrilling, and mostly just boring.
