The plot: Barnabas Collins re-awakens 200 years after a witch called Angelique cursed him to walk the earth as a vampire. While Barnabas acclimatises to the groovy customs and retina-searing fashions of swinging 1972 Maine, Angelique returns to make his undead life a misery. So the fanged fiend joins forces with the latest branch of the Collins family tree headed by Elizabeth to repel the vengeful harpy.

what the others say
"Few director-star partnerships are as consistently eccentric or malleable as that of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, but even loyalists will detect an odour of mothballs clinging to their eighth bigscreen collaboration."
"One of the strangest mainstream releases of recent times, Dark Shadows' demented gothic melodrama/fish-out-of-water comedy/creature feature feels like you've slipped into a Burton fever-dream."
"A word of warning: this is not the knockabout comedy the trailer suggests. Instead, it cleaves closer to what you expect from Burton: darkness, quirk and Johnny Depp on great form. A step up, then, from Alice In Wonderland and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, but not tip-top Tim."
