I admit: I’ve never seen a single episode of “Dark Shadows,” the goth soap opera that ran for five season in the late 60s/early 70s. But still I formed a picture in my head of what I thought it was about.
This is not it.
The Burton staples are all here: the Danny Elfman music, Johnny Depp being a goofy weirdo, Helena Bonham Carter in a silly costume. But the cheesy 70s setting … I don’t know. It’s kind of bumming me out. The whole thing makes me want to watch Burton’s Big Fish just to get the image of Eva Green’s tongue out of my mind.
What say you? Does this movie look awesome or awful?
