The trick to loving this movie is to realize that "Dark Shadows" was nothing more than a campy soap opera under the guise of a horror saga... Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" is an even Campier Soap Opera story with some horror elements. The problem with adapting a soap opera to a film is that soap operas usually have many storylines that intersect at points.. and to have a character with a back story like Barnabus, as well as the story of his family.. throw in Angelique, Dr Hoffman, Victoria (who, has her own soap opera story) and you have a LOT to squeeze into 2 hours.
It's a fun and silly ride dark humor, silly gags, and a bit of slapstick with some blood splatters here and there. Nothing phenomenal.. but very enjoyable if you don't have any expectations based on the original.
Great Movie! AMAZING performance by Kate Winslet, amazing special effects, great score- overall- VERY welld one- would have preferred someone other than Leo, but other than that a FANTASTIC film
Personally curious as to why the Ancient Greeks always speak with Proper British Accents, but LOVE this movie!!! One of my TOP 5 movies of all time!
