My runner-up (2nd fave) movie. I thought that this was funny, charming, thrilling, and exciting, as opposed to the TV show, which I got bored with after 2 seconds of watching. I'm starting to wonder if that's because this is nothing even close to the TV show. But it's still a good movie though.

The acting was brilliant, so too was the direction and the cinematography - the plot was lacking however

Yet another Burton-Depp-BonhamCarter collaboration. This one is mildly decent at best with Depp playing the role of a vampire well enough I suppose. Eva Green is smoldering hot as a blondie, bit odd with an American accent though. It's not a movie that has any lasting power that much is for sure, too kooky for my taste.

The scariest bit is the hint at the finale that there may be a sequel to this Tim Burton uninspired, unfunny and unexciting horror comedy.

The film goes worse after the second half but the first half is quite interesting.

Love theme, story, but execution falls flat

The first half of this movie actually kept me interested but it becomes stale quick towards the end. Over dripping with plot twists and effects. It's hard to watch from where the pair came from. I don't get how he directed and edited the end of the movie and said ok I'm satisfied with this. Cmon man!

Anyways the film has some high points because Depp is just so good at making you glued to him as a an actor. However, this could have been so much better Burton had all the tools he just used them with no regard to the final cut.

Probably The worst vampire movie ever made.

This was better than it looked but that's not saying too much. Basically Dark Shadows is just uneven across the board, in tone, pacing, and humor. The acting is actually pretty solid though, which is what keeps it afloat. Honestly, it's the type of movie I might have appreciated as a teenager for its style and lightheartedness. But since I am older and wiser, I see it as the type of film that's been done so many times there's really nothing to come back to.

Enjoyable soap opera of a movie. I know it did not get great reviews but I found it highly enjoyable and entertaining. Yes, it dips in the middle but again, it's predictable and funny.

It was really good in certain ways... Having Depp in the movie make it better... Nice effects of the witch breaking like a porcelain doll. I thought it was a little bit better 'cuz it is a Burton's movie.
