dark shadows

I saw Dark Shadows, after hearing about it, I had to watch it for myself.
It’s about Barnabas Collins whose family settles in the new world, America.  He scorns a servant girl who’s in love with him.  She then places a curse on him and he’s now a vampire.

The good; the soundtrack, I love all the pop songs from the seventies.  The look of the film is great as well, lots of vivid colors.

The bad; the story, this movie didn’t know what it wanted to be.  It needed to commit and go all the way.  Is it a spoof?  Is it a parody?  What?

I could go on and on about what didn’t work for me, but ten this entry would be super long.  Kinda like the movie, it dragged…

Overall, if you like Tim Burton, by all means skip this one.  You’ll be doing yourself a favor.
