Dark Shadows

Directed by: Tim Burton

Starring: Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter

The soap opera made famous from the 60s and 70s is brought to life once again by Tim Burton and can now be owned on Blu-Ray or DVD. After breaking the heart of a witch, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) is turned into a vampire and buried alive, never to be found again. Nearly 200 years later, after being accidently dug up, Barnabas escapes out in the year 1972. When returns back to his home, he finds a family he doesn’t know and a culture that’s completely foreign. 1972 certainly isn’t at all like 1760.
