For over forty years I have been a fan of the cult-classic television show Dark Shadows. Yeah, it was a cheesy combination of All My Children and Dracula with a dash of Ed Wood thrown in, but I was a little kid when it aired back in 1966-1971. Barnabas (played by Jonathan Frid) was the original good-guy vampire while the vampire/witch Angelique (played by Lara Parker) gave me thoughts I was too young to be having.
I should have expected that a film by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp would be a dark comedy, but this is a sacrilege! The cast includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley and Chloë Grace Moretz as well as cameo appearances by original cast members Jonathan Frid, Lara Parker, David Selby and Kathryn Leigh Scott.
It is scheduled to be released on May 11th.
This is an open thread.
