But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.
Plot: Vampire Barnabas Collins is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate and family have fallen into ruin.

Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
Don’t get me wrong, this is probably a stranger than good watch, but from concept to story to characters, it has a lot of good to it. Some of the choices are a bit odd, but they do create their own problem-solution story arcs that make it feel like this was a comic book that was consolidated into a movie.
While Depp’s typical weirdness is abundant, each character has their own weirdness about them, and the otherworldly atmosphere of the movie is what makes it.
Eva Green does steals the show whenever she makes an appearance, and her character is a force of power, and it shows.
There is something very intriguing about immortal characters locked in battle, and that’s what really draws me back to this movie.
Let’s leave it all at the door here. I loved Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Batman. Hated Batman Returns, Alice in Wonderland, and Willy Wonka. Could care less about Nightmare before Christmas and Sweeney Todd. Okay, so I’m not a Tim Burton hater. I’m not a huge Tim Burton fan. I think in this situation, I’m as close as you get to the average movie goer. No agenda, no attachments. That being said, this film is terrible. Burton spent so much effort and time worrying about making this film Gothic and off pace, stuffing his favorite actors into the film even though half of their parts were pointless, he forgot he was making a film. It’s a simple and fun idea but it feels like ego and “showiness” kept them from making the plot even make sense. We get it Tim! You are weird! Don’t ruin a good performance by Depp and a fun idea for a film because you have to live up to your own Gothic standards. Grow up. So much talent is wasted on these films having the same look, cast, and feel to them. Take that talent and make something fresh! Stretch yourself just a tad out of that Hot Topic comfort zone will ya? This movie was long, boring, and ruined. All of the funny scenes were in the trailer. By the way…. wasn’t this supposed to be the 70’s? Other than a shot or two of trees and a hippie van it was just like the set of Sweeney Todd. The whole film felt like London in the 40’s. That’s bad film making whether your name is Tim Burton or not.
A quirky story
Based on all the previews, one would think that this was a remake of Love at First Bite – a fish-out-of-water comedy, with Barnabas coming to terms with 1972. These trailer scenes probably make up 80% of those jokes for the movie. It is not a comedy that the trailers would leave you to believe.
Overall it is a quirky retelling of some of the elements from the original series. I did enjoy it for what it was. You do have to go in with the expectation that this is a Burton/Depp film. Johnny seems to play one character for Burton – pauses in his speech, some weird walking movements, and lots of hand waving. A little more of a darker side would have fit this film perfectly.
While the rest of the cast does a good job (Michelle is great as a matriarch) the biggest problem I had is that characters appear when needed and then go away for long spells. I had almost forgotten that Victoria was a role she was off screen so much. Same with a few of the other supporting characters.
Don’t expect anything super serious or super funny.
Tim Burton must have seemed the ideal choice to resurrect the most infamous television vampire Barnabas Collins and his relatives from the Gothic Dan Curtis black and white soap opera “Dark Shadows” that aired on ABC from 1966 to 1971. Burton loves to make movies about eccentric people, and the folks lurking at Collinwood exemplify the eccentricity gone wild. The problem with Burton’s campy but reverential homage to “Dark Shadows” is that it is all wrong. Mind you, “Dark Shadows” is nowhere as egregious as either Barry Sonnenfeld’s “Wild Wild West” or Todd Phillips’s “Starsky and Hutch.” The secret to “Dark Shadows” is that most of its fans took it seriously despite its outlandish subject matter. I remember getting home from school as fast as I could to catch part of the show. The black & white videography with its “live telecast” quality imbued the series with an eerie suspense. The siren-like music set to waves crashing convulsively against the rocks is something that I’ll never forget. Remember, until Hammer introduced the Universal monsters in color, black and white was integral to horror. Now, whenever Hollywood has to fondly remember anything, it does so with a wink and a smirk. “Dark Shadows” deserved better. “Dark Shadows” deserves a straightforward adaptation. Kenneth Branagh might have been better suited and a two hour plus running time with all the seriousness of Kevin Costner’s “Dances with Wolves.” Instead, Burton skewers everybody and everything in sight. The only redeeming feature about “Dark Shadows” is the way Burton wraps everything up in 1970’s nostalgia, particularly with its evocative source music, whether it is The Moody Blues’ “Nights in White Satin” or a benign Carpenters’ tune. If “Dark Shadows” had never existed, the Burton film might have been heralded as a work of genius. As it is, this handsomely produced homage looks as polished as anything Burton has ever done. Of course, if Burton had take the same approach that he did—playing things straight—with his “Planet of the Apes” reboot, “Dark Shadows” might have been fun. Often, I struggle to bring myself around to the filmmaker’s perspective and give them the benefit of the doubt. Even with the benefit of the doubt, “Dark Shadows” is a misfire, but I suppose that it could have been infinitely worse.
