“Dark Shadows” (2012) Movie Review

Uploaded on Thursday 10 May 2012


If you are to believe the marketing campaign behind “Dark Shadows,” you would be led into thinking that the film is campy in the grand tradition of “The Addams Family.” But that’s not the case. “Dark Shadows,” while it has some semblance of camp, is not silly and treats its supernatural plotline with equal parts fun and thrills.

Based on the ABC television show from the 1960s created by Dan Curtis, the film version is an old-school gothic thriller with a twist. And no one can effectively mix gothic and camp together better than director Tim Burton and his muse, Johnny Depp.
