I loved this movie, went to see it in theaters because it was the only one my friends and I could agree on. I wasn't sure what to expect but it didn't disappoint but its not a movie to let kids under 16 to watch. I was surprised with some of the scenes and because of them the rating.
Everyone in my house enjoyed this movie. glad i bought it. Wish i seen it at the theatre
i used to watch it long ago when i was a lot younger, it was scary, now, it's just too funny. actually, you can't appreciate it unless you watched it in the 60s. and i am watching the 60's series on NETFLIX, so i love it even more...
When I first heard that Burton was doing Dark Shadows I was a bit worried. After all, how could it compete with the original?
Quite well, as it turns out. True, the original concept would have made 'purists' happy, but Depp, while acknowledging ALL the built-in comedy, intentionally (I hope) down-plays the humor, making it work even better.
Michelle Pfeiffer was WONDERFUL as Elizabeth Collins-Stoddard! Forceful and pragmatic. And beautiful, of course!
Helena Bonham-Carter (My FAVORITE Ophelia!) was FANTASTIC as Dr Julia... even down to some of the mannerisms used in the TV show...
I must admit that I thought the 'adjustment to the pedigree' was added a bit too late, but after watching it more-than-once (which is EASY to do) it bothers me less each time I watch it.
I must acknowledge the cameo of the original Barnabas, Johnathan Frid, at the 'happening'. NICE touch!
I originally saw it in the theater and vowed that I would own it when it came out on DVD. Preordered. DONE!
I cannot think of ANYTHING I truly disliked about this movie... Nothing at all!
I LOVED IT THOUGHT IT WAS VERY FUNNY IT'S A MUST SEE!!!!!! ; )
I grew up on the old TV Dark Shadows so I was happy to see this come out, I was pleased that Everyone enjoyed it not just me. Some darkness, some sexy moments, and funny without being silly.
bought the movie cause I love Johnny Depp!
I loved the movie and I really like Johnny Depp's movies. Very happy!
I LOVED THIS MOVIE, EVEN THOUGH IT IS ABOUT A VAMPIRE, IT IS MORE OF A COMEDY THAN WHAT THE ORIGINAL DARK SHADOWS WAS, BUT LOVED IT JUST THE SAME.........I WATCH THE ORIGINAL DS MOVIES WHEN I CAN, BUT NOW WILL THROUGH IN JOHNNY'S VERSION ALSO!!!!!!
A take off on the original Dark Sahdows, wasn't what I was expecting but love Johnny Depp
I thought that this was a nice remake of the original and I at least enjoined it. Plus I had downloaded this and had to buy it for my brother.
If your an old fan of the original series be sure and take this for what it is and enjoy it at that. It's years and years of compiled Dark Shadows compressed into a movie with it's own bend and some humor scattered into the mix. It was entertaining. The sets are incredibly rich as always with a Tim Burton film.
This was not one of Johnny Depps best movies.Dont get me wrong his acting was spot on as always, but the movie itself surely lacked.It is worth watching I suppose, but it is no where near as funny as the commercials lead it out to be.It only had a few funny scenes to me, I dont know but the movie just really did not do it for me. It was ok to watch I guess but just not what I expected it to be.
